English term or phrase: novated to the D&B contractor
Sformułowanie pojawia się w opisie projektów zrealizowanych przez biuro architektoniczne UK w takim zdaniu:
"Going forward our colleague XYZ will lead the design team we we are novated to the D&B contractor in autumn 2018".
Tak, nie ma tam żadnego spójnika między tymi dwiema częściami zdania.
Wiem, że istnieją firmy typu "Design&Build", które i projektują, i budują, tylko problem w tym, że z całego dokumentu wynika, że ta firma już ma taki charakter, a nie, że będzie go mieć od jesieni tego roku. I że w tym projekcie, do którego też odnosi się ten opis, też robi wszystko.
A na samo "novate" znalazłam takie znaczenie tu na prozie:
Będę wdzięczna za każdą pomoc!

Design and Build
In the United Kingdom, the Design and Build Form of contract is now the most
popular form of contract for building contracts. This form of contract gives a
single point of responsibility for both the design and the construction of the
works. There are a number of variations to this form of contract. These range
from the situation where a Client organisation may undertake initial design work
with a design team comprising an Architect, Design Consultant and Services
Consultant to undertake feasibility studies and secure planning permission and then ask the Contractor to complete the design and construct the work. This Client-led form of Design and Build relationship is shown in Figure 3.


Alternatively, the Client may directly employ a Contractor to undertake both the
design and the construction. Many Contractors have now adapted their organisation to supply effective design and build solutions to client organisations. Where additional design services are required, the Contractor will employ outside specialist providers.

The substitution of a new contract for an old one.
