Prepared by the Committee on Specifications of the Construction Institute of ASCE.

This report explains in detail the key steps in writing a request for proposal (RFP) or specifications document for construction projects using design-build as the project delivery method. A concise, well-written RFP is a cornerstone of a successful design-build project, and knowledge about how to create and interpret RFPs and specifications is essential for project owners and the design and construction professionals.

Topics include:

  • an overview of RFPs and their role in design-build projects;
  • various approaches to project contracts, including projects not suited for design-build;
  • definition and vision for the project;
  • writing the actual proposal, including qualifications and technical considerations;
  • general contract terms and conditions; and
  • unusual and specific contract specifications.

Appendixes contain sample requests for technical criteria and project specifications.

This publication will be invaluable to engineers, architects, owners, and construction professionals involved with design-build projects.
