Project/Team Awards



As the only organization that defines, teaches and promotes best practices in design-build, being ​recognized by DBIA is a top honor. 
With design-build usage accelerating in the United States in both the public and private sector, emphasis on highly successful projects that meet or exceed cost and schedule goals, as well as exceed owner expectations, is greater than ever. Winning a Design-Build Project/Team Award will help you gain a competitive edge and stand out as an industry leader.
