A project delivery method known as progressive design-build is catching on in Washington State, and the approach already is being employed on a couple of Spokane-area projects, says Rustin Hall, Principal at ALSC Architects.
ALSC is using the progressive design-build method on the City of Airway Heights community recreation center project. The $17.3 million recreation center includes 48,200 square feet of space and is expected to wrap up the project next March.
According to Hall, no design method fits every project, but he’s optimistic about the progressive design-build approach. From what he’s seen, the method could be applied to more project types than the conventional design-build method to the benefit of the owner.
