Abstract: One of the challenging tasks in Design and Build (DB) project is how to identify and assess the risks that impact on the project objectives. The impact of the risks can cause the increase in the project cost, delay in time and lack of quality expectation from client. Design and build project is widely associated with high degree of risk and uncertainty due to the nature of the project itself. The objective of this study is to identify and asses the occurrence of risk impact in design and build projects in Malaysia. A total of one hundred seventy usable questionnaires were received from respondents (client, consultants and contractors) that were involved in DB projects and analyzed using descriptive statistics and Spearman’s rank correlation test. The results revealed the top 10 risk factors impacting the DB projects observed. Armed with this information, stakeholder may be better able to provide complete information on the influence of design and construction related to risks in DB projects and consequently, the client’s cash flow position.
