There's a Better Way to Build
Twenty-five years ago, a handful of the nation’s architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry leaders got together because they knew there had to be a better way to bring a project from design to delivery. They didn’t invent the design-build process, but they set about to perfect it and to share it with a wider audience.
Today that novel, even “radical,” idea delivers nearly half of the nation’s construction projects — from airports to art museums, from burger joints to college dorms, from LEED-platinum police stations to billion-dollar tunnels carrying traffic beneath our waterways. Each of those projects and thousands more have provided greater value to Owners by bringing designers and builders to the table on day one.
Staff at the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) are committed to demonstrating how the process saves money, saves time and ensures accountability. And whether you’re a designer, a construction pro or a project owner looking to harness industry expertise, you’re welcome to the fold.
