Congratulations to DBIA’S
2017 National Design-Build Award Winners​

From a small urban burger joint to a launch tower at Cape Canaveral and everything in between, design-build teams have delivered some of America’s most impressive projects. DBIA is proud to honor 2017’s best teams, projects and design-build leaders in our nation.

In 2017, 26 National Design-build Merit Winners competed for an Excellence Award in one of ten categories and ultimately, DBIA’s Project of the Year. This year’s list of award winners is impressive and illustrates the tremendous contribution design-build delivers in communities from coast to coast.​ ​
