This chapter will provide readers with an understanding of design institutes (DIs) in China as well as how and when they are used on projects in China. It is based on my experiences in numerous initial meetings before we moved forward with our project and the process of identifying and selecting a design institute. The information included in this chapter can be considered representative of DIs in China. However, none of the discussions associated with any specific DI should be taken as an endorsement or that it accurately reflects their capabilities today. These meetings took place in 2005 and 2006.
