Design Assist and Delegated Design 



Exploring Collaborative Concepts

 

Thursday, February 18, 2021   |   3-4 pm ET   |   Free webinar

There are several reasons for is an increasing emphasis on collaboration between design professionals and builders:


• The benefits when aspects of a project’s design are informed by builder input.

• The complexity and proprietary of building materials and systems.

• The valuable technical contributions specialty contractors and product manufacturers provide to the most complicated parts of a project’s design.


These paradigm shifts have spurred strategies to connect design professionals with contractors, specialty contractors, and product manufacturers during the project’s design stages for a more successful outcome.


In this program, we examine the distinctions between design assist and delegated design; describe the roles and responsibilities of project team members; discuss problems that can arise; and offer definitions and guidelines that design professionals, and the construction industry can adopt for their use.


Attendees will receive a free copy of the new white paper Design Collaboration on Construction Projects Part 1: Delegated Design, Design Assist, and Informal Involvement – What Does it All Mean?, jointly published by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).
