Two New Laws Create More Design-Build Opportunities for Local Governments and State Agencies


Most Local Governments Can Now Use Design-Build Methodology on Projects Over $1 Million

All cities can now use design-build project delivery systems for buildings with a value above $1 million. For solid waste management and wastewater treatment facilities, a pilot program also allows cities, counties, and special districts to use the design-build method on 20 such projects if valued above $2.5 million. Assembly Bill 642, codified at Public Contract Code §§ 20175.2 and 20193, took effect January 1, 2009. Existing law (Public Contract Code § 20133) already authorizes counties to use the design-build methodology for building and wastewater projects over $2.5 million.
