Abstract : This thesis will study a select group of US Naval Facilities Engineering Command capital projects procured via Design/Build contracts and a comparison group constructed through traditional Design/Bid/Build contracts. It will compare design, construction and administrative costs, cost growth, contract modifications, claims, and the procurement time frame. Upon completion of the comparative analysis, the thesis will attempt to validate the hypothesized superiority of design/build contracts over design/bid/build contracts within the areas of comparison.
