Assoc. DBIA™ certification demonstrates a commitment to design-build done right. Individuals holding the Assoc. DBIA™ certification have mastered the best practices associated with the entire design-build process—from project procurement through post-award. Both A/E/C firms and public agencies train personnel from a variety of disciplines and departments in the best-practices developed by DBIA.
The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) was founded in 1993 in response to the emergence of design-build and integrated project delivery as a significant force in the design and construction industry. From its headquarters in Washington, DC, and network of chapters throughout the U.S., the Institute provides a forum for all participants in the design-build process, owners and practitioners alike. DBIA is the center of expertise for integrated project delivery, defining best practices, creating and disseminating educational information, and furnishing advice and support to facility owners and users.
