Design and Build Construction
Complete Plans and Specifications Construction
Cost Plus Fee
Four Basic Types of Construction Processes Used as Tools for Owners and Contractors to Negotiate the Price and Scope of Work for Construction Projects.
In the design-and-build contracting arrangement, also called the "design-build" or "turnkey" mode, the Owner typically contracts with a single party that designs and builds the project. Documents for the solicitation of bids under the design-and-build contracting mode include the following:
The complete plans and specifications contracting option, also known as "lump-sum" mode, requires the development and cost to complete a full set of plans and specifications setting forth directions in enough detail to enable a contractor to carry them out. This mode of construction typically cost's more up front as the owner typically hires and Architect or Engineer to develop the set of plans and a complete specification list of every item used in the construction.
In the construction manager contracting arrangement, the Owner typically contracts with a firm that provides management services during design and bidding phases and assumes responsibility for the construction work. The construction manager serves as a member of the construction team. Documents for the solicitation of bids under the construction manager contracting mode include the following:
These documents must indicate the general scope of the project. They must also designate those fees and other fixed commitments upon which pre-qualified contractors will be invited to submit competitive bids that will, in turn, serve as the basis of selection.
In the cost-plus-fee contracting arrangement, the contractor is reimbursed for the actual cost of labor and materials, plus a fee for overhead and profit. Cost-plus-fee contracts are usually used when there are limiting factors like short times frames to complete the work or when there is a development of trust between Owner and Contractor. In the Cost-Plus-Fee Mode the Owner and Contractor share the risk during construction, but work towards completing the project on time. Documents for the solicitation of bids under the cost-plus-fee contracting mode include the following:
These documents must generally describe the scope of the work and a definition of "reimbursable costs" and "non-reimbursable costs." They must also designate the fees and other fixed costs upon which pre-qualified contractors will be invited to submit proposals that will, in turn, serve as the basis of selection.
