Whether you are a contractor, project owner or consultant, understanding project delivery options and choosing the best method for your project is fundamental to your success. Making sure all project stakeholders understand their roles and responsibilities for the chosen project delivery method is critical for building trust, honesty and respect.

Facilitated by Debbie Hicks and a multi-disciplinary training team, you will gain expert insight into key considerations for evaluating and selecting a project delivery method, including project-specific needs and priorities, allocation of risk, team members’ expertise, success measurements, budget and schedule.

You’ll review each project delivery method from the perspectives of a project owner, consultant, and contractor as well as the clauses in CCDC 2, 5A, 5B, 14, and 15 that are critical to each delivery method’s success. Delivery methods covered in this course 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 course 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.


  • Key characteristics of each project delivery method
  • When to use each project delivery method
  • Review projects that both succeeded and failed with each project delivery method
  • Advantages and disadvantages of each project delivery method
  • Risk mitigation factors for each project delivery method
