    Abstract

    Traditional Design/Bid/Build project delivery methods are inherently cumbersome for complex façade repair programs. The repair program on an 11 — story apartment building is documented, demonstrating the aspects and benefits of utilizing a Design/Build contracting approach, with the Design-Professional leading the repair program. The project begins with an assessment that concludes with the recommendation to replace the façade. Early evaluation efforts document the need for immediate safety/ stabilization measures, then progress through the successful delivery of a complex façade repair program under a project delivery method that is growing in acceptance.
