The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) recently revealed that design-build project delivery represents nearly 40% of total market share in the United States, based on dollar value at the end of 2012. This represents an 8% growth increase since 2005. The geographic area with the highest design-build delivery market share is the Pacific region at 59%. In addition, research findings show the military sector dominates design-build project delivery with an 81% market share.
In a study of 48,640 project specifications across nine building sectors and geographic regions, DBIA found commercial building was the second largest sector, followed by medical building for design-build project delivery in 2012. In addition, research from DBIA indicates that market size, as defined as the potential share of design-build delivery according to dollar value, has doubled in the United States since 2005.
