Whether you are a Project Owner, Consultant, or Contractor, understanding the many different project delivery options for a particular project is critical to its success.  Moreover, ensuring that all project stakeholders understand their roles and responsibilities for the selected project delivery is fundamental for building trust, honesty and respect.

Through a team of multi-disciplinary trainers with decades of experience, this Workshop will discuss the characteristics, risks, benefits and disadvantages of the various project delivery methods.  Each presenter will give you key insights to the success of each delivery method from the perspective of a Project Owner, Consultant and Contractor.  In addition, they will draw your attention to a few key CCDC clauses that are critical to the effectiveness of each project delivery method. 

Project delivery methods covered in this workshop include:

  • Design-Bid-Build
  • Design-Build
  • Construction Management for Services
  • Construction Management for Services and Construction
  • Integrated Project Delivery
    • Methods Involving Land, Finance, Operation or Maintenance

Using a hands-on, practical approach, this workshop will also give you an opportunity to apply what you learn by guiding you through an interactive exercise of assisting a “client” in determining an appropriate project delivery method.


Remember when it comes to contracts, it’s not about your own thoughts and assumptions; it’s about what is “written”!



For each Project Delivery Method, you will:

  • Learn the key characteristics
  • Understand when best to use
  • Discuss projects that succeeded with the model and those that did not
  • Acquire key insights for success from the perspective of Owner, Consultant and Contractor
  • Demonstrate your knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages, risk mitigation and project approach
