DBIA’s design-build competition mirrors best practices in actual design-build project delivery by breaking the competition into a two-phase process. Phase 1 includes issuance of a general “problem” statement (RFQ) that requires teams of students from DBIA’s regional chapters across the country to provide a broad, all-encompassing solution to meet the qualifications needed to accomplish the owner’s goals.

In Phase 2, the jury will “shortlist” three teams as the finalists. A RFP will be issued and teams will have one week to respond in full. These three finalists will compete in front of the jury and live  audience for the grand prize during the 2013  Design-Build Conference  & Expo in November.
