30th Anniversary

In 1993, design-build was considered a radical approach to project delivery. That year, the Design-Build Institute of America was created by a small group of industry visionaries who believed there was a better way to build. In the three decades since, design-build has become the nation’s fastest-growing delivery method, and DBIA is the nation’s leading source of education, resources and advocacy for Design-Build Done Right®.

Throughout the year, DBIA will be marking our 30th anniversary in a variety of ways. Our ultimate goal is to celebrate the many industry professionals and Owners, public and private, across all sectors and professions, who are delivering some of the nation’s most innovative, collaborative, cost and time efficient projects.
