Project delivery type is a key element that can affect the efforts to construct or refurbish these facilities. When selected and implemented correctly, the project delivery type can support project goals and ensure a successful project is delivered on time and within budget. However, the wrong delivery method can negatively affect the cost and delivery schedule of a project, potentially delaying key parts of the new space enterprise. Improved understanding of project delivery types will result in more ground-based projects successfully contributing to the nation’s goals in space.
