After a Decade of Hard Work, Design-Build is Coming to Missouri’s Local Public Agencies


Friday the 13th (May 13, 2016) was a lucky day for DBIA-Mid America Region as legislation was passed affirming Missouri’s commitment to finding better ways to deliver construction projects for the taxpayers, and encouraged the future of design-build in the Midwest. The recent passage of Missouri House Bill 2376 enables any local political subdivision to use design-build project delivery at their discretion. The bill also ensures that community development block grants are properly allocated to water and wastewater projects that are delivered using design-build. This legislation had a long road to victory spanning a decade, and is significant in light of the strong demand for design-build authority from public owners. There is a great demand for design-build on local civil, architectural and water projects in Missouri, this legislation is an opportunity to promote Design-Build Done RightTM.
