‘Design and Build in Action’, by David Mosey, examines the design and build (D&B) method of procurement in the construction industry: its strengths, weaknesses and idiosyncrasies. Crucially, case studies of D&B projects on which the author has worked are included. The book begins by looking at the reasons for the increasing interest in D&B; it then examines the basic components and principles of D&B, covering such issues as what is a D&B contract, the level and scope of liabilities, hybrids - what do they really mean and how many of them are there (design, manage, construct etc.)?


The book is aimed at all of the professions engaged in the construction industry: lawyers, practitioners, academics and researchers in the construction industry.
