 2018 Call for Presentations


We are looking for 2018 Presenters! 


Do you have a design-build story to tell or “lesson learned” that you can share with the industry? Thousands of industry professionals spanning the architecture, engineering or construction community attend Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) conferences each year and we, in collaboration with AWWA, WEF and WDBC are now looking for presenters for our 2018 Design-Build for Water/Wastewater Conference.
This event provides a unique opportunity for industry experts to address a broad array of design-build   experiences and latest developments in the water and wastewater sector. We are looking for experienced, knowledgeable, and well-spoken industry experts to highlight key aspects of design-build and alternative project delivery including best practices, lessons learned, noted challenges, and/or emerging trends and opportunities. DBIA promotes the value of design-build project delivery and teaches the effective integration of design and construction services to ensure success for owners and design and construction practitioners.
Only submissions that align with these core purposes will be considered.
Although there is no restriction on topics to be submitted, the following have been identified as areas of particular interest for the 2018 conference:
  1. Making the Design-Build Decision
  2. Procuring Design-Build Services
  3. Contracting for Design-Build Services
  4. Effective Teaming, Collaboration and Integration
  5. Executing the Delivery of Design-Build Projects
  6. Emerging Trends in Design-Build

All submissions must be completed online.

Questions regarding the submission process should be directed to:
