What is design-build?

The term “design-build” means that construction begins in areas where design is complete, while at the same time, plans are developed for other segments of the work. By simultaneously carrying out design and construction activities, project completion can be accelerated to minimize overall costs due to escalating material prices and rising wages. This means that Tarrant County will see improved mobility and safety sooner along the Southeast Connector Project.
