The six phases of Design and Construction you listed are mostly associated with a single delivery method, Design, Bid, Build (DBB). This is the least successful method for a Construction Owner to maximize their investment. It turns out that designing the whole project without engaging Trade Partners and the General Contractor to verify cost, availability, and compatibility of design elements doesn’t actually get you the best product. Who woulda thunk it? This is a huge reason why 75%+ of construction projects don’t finish on time and at budget. IPD for example doesn’t typically use the SD, DD & CD phases of Design. There are typically several phases of Construction also, depending on what you are building.
