What is the difference between bid-build and design-build?

Design-build is a way of project delivery where the team collaborates with the client under a single contract to offer design and construction services. Under the bid-build system, design and construction services are divided into different entities, contracts, and work. The benefits of each approach vary depending on the application and client demands.
