It further asserts that soft skills are the most important skills for owner representatives on design-build projects. This research focuses on a specific owner representative, the U.S. Army Health Facility Planning Agency, to determine if its project integration concept has a significant impact in balancing constraints on Army healthcare renewal projects.
