What are Design-Build and Design-Build Ready?

Design-Build is an alternative contract delivery model where a contractor is selected to complete the final design of the project, obtain outstanding permits and approvals (including environmental assessment approvals) and then undertake construction of the project.

Design-Build Ready is the process undertaken in preparation for Design-Build. During Design-Build Ready, Ministry of Transportation and the consultant (the Project Team) prepare the beginning of detailed design, assess preliminary impacts and develop commitments that will be required by the contractor during Design-Build (completion of detailed design and construction).
