The percentage of nonresidential projects that utilize design-build delivery continues to increase, concludes a recent ZweigWhite survey, most notably medical, commercial and sports/recreation facilities.

According to the Natick, Mass.-based market research firm, design-build delivery for medical-facility projects increased from 15% in 1997 to 46% this past year. For commercial buildings, the numbers grew from 37% to 45%, and design-build use for sports and recreational facilities increased even more dramatically from just 6% in 1997 to 38% last year.

Commenting on this industry trend, ZweigWhite associate Jerry Novacek observed, "Many of the projects in these markets tend to be large-scale—office buildings, hospitals, sports arenas. The big firms that tend to get these kinds of projects are also more likely to make use of design-build than their smaller counterparts."
