Abstract: The right choice of construction procurement method plays a pivotal role to achieve the clients’ goals. Though it is evident that the traditional Design-Bid-Build (DBB) method has played its role well in the past decade, a shift towards the pure Design and Build (D&B) procurement is necessary to cope with the ever changing construction industry and the increasingly complex projects. The aim of this study is to examine the perspectives held by the clients towards a shift from the traditional DBB to pure D&B procurement. The research method of this study is based on literature review, case study and survey questionnaire. The survey questionnaire is formulated from the literature review. The results, which are obtained via electronic mail, are analyzed and depicted using frequencies and percentages. It is concluded that the shift towards the pure D&B procurement may not be optimistic given the traditional views held by the clients. However, given the constant change in the construction industry, complexity in projects and tight project timeline to adhere to, the shift towards the pure D&B route is necessary. Thus, based on the findings, recommendations have been suggested to aid the clients’ moves towards the pure D&B procurement in the future.
