A new Missouri law that’s expected to save cities, school districts and other political subdivisions money on their construction projects has taken effect.
Gov. Jay Nixon on July 1 signed into law House Bill 2376, which allows local governments the option to enter into design-build contracts with general contractors for capital projects.
Design-build is a method of selecting a single contractor to carry out the design and construction of a project.
Advocates of design-build say the simplified process allows public bodies to save on costs and time for procurement on construction projects.
