RS&H Buildings Design-Build Manager Rob Smedley, AIA, DBIA, sees several opportunities for design and construction collaboration, including:
- The progressive design-build method
- Integration between the owner and the design-build team
- Utilizing new technologies
Smedley joined Sue Dyer on the Construction Dream Team podcast earlier this month to talk about the importance of using design-build concepts on projects and communicating effectively with different teams. While challenges and barriers exist to design, construction and owner integration, the benefits win out for Smedley, who has more than 30 years of experience on a variety of design-build projects.
In the podcast, Smedley discusses the biggest challenges with design and opportunities for collaboration, as well as how to have better project integration. You can listen to the entire episode for free on the Construction Dream Team website.
