This research study focused on determining the effects that the two major contract delivery methods had on the LEED score of projects over the design and construction time horizon. The Navy uses almost exclusively Design-Bid-Build and Design-Build contracting methods to deliver Military Construction (MCON) projects. Twenty-five projects were analyzed and there were no statistically significant results that could support a conclusion that delivery method adversely or positively affected the LEED score over the project horizon. This result is useful because it encourages the management of Navy construction contracts to look at other areas to increase LEED score rather than delivery method.
