Abstract : The intent of this Masters Report is to familiarize the reader with the legal aspects of the design/build project delivery method. This method is becoming increasingly popular in the public and private sector, and it is important for Architects/Engineers, Contractors, and Owners interested in this method to fully understand and be aware of its many advantages and disadvantages, as well as its legal differences to the more traditional methods of construction contracting. This manuscript also serves as a final report submitted to fulfill the terms and requirements to complete a Masters in Civil Engineering.
