 Student Competition


Design-Build Student Competition

Thursday, November 9

10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Be a spectator at the final round judging of the sixth annual National Design-Build Student Competition. Unlike other
student competitions, DBIA’s design-build competition mirrors best practices in actual design-build project delivery by
breaking the competition into a two-phase process. The competition involves the collaboration of students from diverse
backgrounds, including architecture and construction management, responding to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for
a student health and wellness facility on a liberal arts college campus in the Northwestern United States.

Earn up to 3 CEUs by attending the Student Competition Each presentation is valued at 1 CEU. Be sure to get your badge scanned after each team completes their presentation to earn credit.
