Abstract: The design-build (D&B) procurement method has emerged for several decades in the construction industry to overcome the problems inherent in the traditional design-bid-build method. As a result, some countries in the East, like Japan, have a very developed D&B market, while the use of D&B in Hong Kong is still developing due to a lack of management studies in the local context. This paper evaluates the management approaches for the three major types of D&B construction projects in Hong Kong, namely traditional D&B, novation D&B and enhanced D&B. Further case analysis was conducted on some recently completed D&B projects in Hong Kong, including residential quarters, slaughterhouses and hospital projects. Project details and features, project brief development and project management approaches on these projects were scrutinized. Further research on the quantitative analysis of the criteria and critical factors for D&B project success is recommended to develop benchmark studies for the D&B procurement system.
