For more than a decade DBIA has led the expansion of design-build
project delivery across all industries and markets. Organized in 1993,
DBIA has changed and transformed as the role of design-build
professionals and the industry as a whole have evolved. But our central
mission has remained unaltered: to re-integrate the roles of designers
and constructors to achieve superior results.
DBIA is shaping the future of the design and construction industry by
developing comprehensive and fair design-build contract documents,
delivering design-build project management information through
educational programs, influencing procurement and licensing legislation
and teaching owners about the design-build process and its benefits.
DBIA members perform design and construction work in all
non-residential markets including buildings, industrial process
facilities and civil infrastructure projects. Our members are dedicated
to the improvement of professional standards for the industry and
include design-builders, general contractors, design professionals,
specialty contractors, representatives of government agencies, private
sector owners, academics, and other professionals.
