Design-Build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the Design-Build team – works under a single contract with Georgia DOT to provide design and construction services. This method allows for greater efficiencies in project delivery which typically results in accelerated project schedules.
With the Design-Build delivery method, right-of-way (ROW) acquisition, processing permits, and the entire design can all occur concurrently with construction. This differs from traditional project delivery, in which these activities occur prior to construction beginning. The Design-Build method accelerates the project delivery schedule by overlapping the design and construction phases. This method benefits the public by reducing construction times, mitigating travel impacts as much as possible, and maximizing the use of resources and the project budget.
Additionally, Design-Build is best-suited for those projects that generally require acceleration, projects that have unique opportunities to appropriately transfer risk to the Design-Build Team, and/or projects with opportunities for innovation where it has the potential to significantly decrease contract time, reduce costs and/or improve the safety and quality of the facility.
The Office of Innovative Delivery (OID) focuses on effective and accelerated delivery of various transportation
projects and programs, designed to have positive impacts on improving mobility for motorists and freight. In
addition, these projects make a positive contribution to growing the economy in Georgia and the Atlanta region.
The Design-Build and P3 programs, as well as the Major Mobility Investment Program (MMIP) all fall under the OID.

Georgia DOT employed an innovative, accelerated method to replace the SR 299 bridge at I-24 in a single weekend. The bridge was replaced using the Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) method, a technique designed to shorten construction times.
