Hi ARE community,
One quick question in terms of the Project Delivery chapter in AHPP book.
In Design-build : bridge, are design architect and production architect both belonging to one company or they are actually two separate companies? Do they both sign contract with owner before contractor jump in? Because I read the sentence that 'a portion of the design team is contractually tied to the building contractor'. It's kind of confused here since design architect will start to work at the beginning before select contractor.
Hope somebody could help me organize the relationship between those four parties: design architect, production architect, contractor and owner.
