Reston, Va. – With the many varied options available today for public and private sector owners to deliver on their capital projects, selecting the right method can be challenging. Especially for those with limited understanding of the attributes of available delivery methods as well as the procurement and contracting approaches that best work with those methods. In the new ASCE Press book, The Engineer’s Project Delivery Method Primer: Uniform Definitions and Case Studies, authors Gransberg, Loulakis, and Gad bring clarity to the definitions and sometimes complex and conflicting terminology associated with project delivery.

This publication provides a comprehensive explanation of each delivery method, covering

  • The “Big Three” delivery methods – Design-Bid-Build, Construction Manager-at-Risk, and Design-Build;
  • Variations on the “Big Three,” such as multiple prime contracting, EPC, and EPCm;
  • Public-Private Partnerships;
  • Integrated Project Delivery; and
  • Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contracts.


In addition, readers will learn about common procurement and contracting approaches; stakeholders’ roles, responsibilities, and contractual relationships; and legal principles. This book is a great introduction for owners and practitioners to capital project delivery, procurement, and contracting.
