International Transit Studies Program Design-Build Transit Infrastructure Projects in Asia and Australia
Report Number: RRD-053
This digest summarizes the mission on design-build transit infrastructure projects in Asia and Australia.  Transit projects in the United States have traditionally been constructed using the design-bid-build (DBB) system, in which the transit agency hires an engineering firm to design a project and then puts the design specifications out for construction bids.  U.S. transit agencies and owners are however, increasingly turning to the design-build project delivery system as a means of cutting costs and accelerating project delivery.
