North Carolina Authorizes State and Local Government Agencies to Pursue Design-Build and Public-Private Partnership Project Delivery

Progressive design-build law has been signed into law by the Governor of North Carolina (HB 857).

One of the nation’s most progressive design-build laws has been signed into law by the Governor of North Carolina (HB 857) to grant state and local government authorization to pursue design-build and public-private partnership project delivery. In addition, passage of the law is a great step forward for qualifications-based selection in the state.

Previously, local municipalities were required to seek state legislative approval prior to pursuing design-build contracts. This process significantly delayed projects across the state of North Carolina, costing communities valuable financial resources.

North Carolina joins Arizona, Colorado, Florida, and Virginia as the most progressive states in the nation to advance the building and design industry.
