“The workshop sessions were led by excellent instructors and leaders who have expert knowledge in design-build construction projects. We were given insight into current award-winning projects in Denver. I gained significant and important information regarding the benefits design-build projects in the legal area of risk and liability. This workshop was a great opportunity to connect to other passionate professors who want to provide the latest and best practices in the construction field. It was truly inspiring.”

John Hannon, Associate Professor in the School of Construction, University of Southern Mississippi

“The workshop’s effect on me was an internalization of the workshop’s design-build principles and attitude, which was reinforced by the jobsite visit and interviewing the jobsite staff. My paradigm on construction management is now inverted. I highly recommend this workshop to faculty with limited industry experience in general and to veterans that have not experienced project delivery that is integrated.”

Austin Marshall, J.D., Clinical Professor, College of Engineering at the University of Texas

“The Educator Workshop was fantastic. The presenters were great and brought a wealth of experience. I recommend this program to everyone in our field!"
