 The Design and Build contract is normally selected where the client wishes to place the design responsibility to the contractor. This has a variety of benefits:

  • Adversity and conflict between the design team, and construction team is avoided, as both are appointed by the principal contractor, thereby attaining a better level of collaboration.
  • Enables better continuity between the design stage and the construction phase.
  • Aims to improve the communication process.
  • Aims to reduce time delays between design and construction processes, thereby reducing costs.

Some clients still wish to delegate parts of the management of the principal contractor to a professional organisation.  This is done by an Employers Agent.

Typically an Employers Agent undertake the following roles:

  • Producing a project execution plan.
  • Helping the client select a suitable design and build contractor.
  • Managing the briefing process.
  • Producing the Employers Requirements, which creates a set of documents defining the parameters the Design and Build contractor is to design against.
  • Implementing a change control process.

S J Treloar have been involved in a variety of Design and Build work, including the construction of new educational facilities for The Kings School, Witney
