Senator Hueso’s Bill Authorizes All Healthcare Districts to Utilize Design-Build Process

Sacramento, CA-- State Senator Ben Hueso (D-San Diego), today introduced Senate Bill 957, which would authorize all Healthcare districts to utilize the design-build process for construction projects.

“The Design-build process acts as a single entity and is responsible from the budgeting to the design and construction portion,” stated Senator Hueso.  “In today’s cost conscious construction industry, this method is a win-win for all of those involved as the Design-Build team has the same goal and takes full responsibility to complete a project in a timely and efficient manner.  Authorizing hospitals to utilize this method will cost less; projects will be produced faster and will help many families take advantage of the hospitals facilities earlier.”

Under the design-build methods, a single contract covers the design and construction of a project with a single company that acts as both the project designer and builder.  The design-build entity arranges all architectural, engineering and construction services and is also responsible for delivering the project at a guaranteed price and schedule.
