Introduction. Effect of Teamwork in Design-Build. Construction Contract. Factors Can Enhance Design-Build Team Relationship. Selecting Design-Build Team Members. Team Agreement. Defining The Responsibility. Communication. Trust.
Design-Build Contract: is a method where the owner has only one contract to complete the project. Responsibility of the Contractor: 1. Design the project 2. Construct the project
Other designation to design-build system: Design-construct. Single source. Why owners are using design-build contract? Mainly to reduce the construction period (Fast Track Project)
Teamwork: is work performed by a group of people. Cooperated team members helps: improving the quality of the project. Continuity of the project. Enhances the creativity of individuals. Reduce project duration. Reduce the cost of the project.
Design-build Required full cooperation between all team members at all phases of the project. Alpert Chan studied the factors can enhance the successes of design-build system: Project team commitment. Contractor’s competencies. Risk and liability assessment. Client’s competencies. End users’ need. Constraints imposed by end users.
1. Selecting design-build team members. 2. Team agreement. 3. Defining the responsibility. 4. Communication. 5. Trust.
Selection of individual should be based on his ability to perform as team not only on individual qualification. Two Criteria has to be consider before selecting the team member: 1. Diversity of the team member. 2. Technical experience of the member.
Advantages of diversity: 1. Creativity: different idea and different point view will be more effective if you have people from different countries. 2. Eliminating of group thinking:”it is a good idea because everyone believes it is a good idea. 3. Alternative solutions: due different construction method in each region
Disadvantages of diversity: 1. Language: different accent may lead to serious misunderstanding during team communication. 2. Trust: people trust more the person from same country.
Technical experience of the member 1. The team member should be experienced in design-build system. 2. The whole team has to have some knowledge of overall work and expertise other than his area of expertise
How to select design-build team members? Monte Carlo Simulation Approach to Support Alliance Team Selection :found a method for the owner to select the contractor team.
Team Agreement: the vehicle for structuring the relationship between the parties in design-build project. Objective of team agreement: To establish work relationship between constructor, designer, and subcontractors and that will permit the design-build team to satisfy the owner’s requirements. To establish ground rules between all parties involved in the project.
Topics to be included in the team agreement meeting Role of each member in the project. Team communication method and communication and interaction with contractor’s members in addition to sub- contractor and owners representative Partnering.
Defining the responsibility is to distribute the task equally among the team members and according to their experience to achieve maximum productivity. Defining the rules distributing the unforeseen work among team work. Defining the rules that allow cooperation between all parties in design-build project.
Defining the responsibility will reduce the conflict between team members. Responsibility matrix is a schedule used to assign the responsibility task to each group member. It has to be prepared by the project manager of the project.
Communication: is delivering and receiving information or knowledge in convenient way. Communication play a major rule for cooperation between design-build team. Proper communication helps solving the complexity of design-build system.
Feedback: to evaluate the receiver understanding. Communication is two way process: failing to listen means failing to communicate. Provide training course to the design-build team to enhance their communication skills.
A. Past Experience And History. B. Competence and Ability. C. Similarity and Differences. D. Character Trait. E. Relative Power and Authority.
