As the project solution diagram below suggests, a project delivers solutions through product enhancements, revised processes, integrated systems, restructured organizations, market research, introducing new products, and more. As the circular-spoke diagrams illustrate, design-bid-build is the most traditional project delivery method. With this method, the owner hires an architect who completes the design and, after bidding, hires a contractor who completes construction. When the design phase is complete, contractors bid on the construction cost, a process that may occur publicly or with a pre-qualified group. After receiving bids, the architect will counsel the owner through the decision, and the owner will select the contractor who offers the lowest responsive, responsible bid.
