Selecting the right design and construction partners is inarguably one of the most critical aspects of successful project delivery, but how good is your process and when’s the last time you took a hard look at it?  Researchers at UNC Charlotte examined hundreds of RFPs and selection processes and discovered some common themes amongst projects that end successfully:
