Top Student Design-Build Teams Compete for National Honors


Seventeen university teams from throughout the nation competed this year in DBIA’s National Design-Build Student Competition. DBIA is happy to introduce our 2022 Regional winners.

Students across many AEC disciplines collaborate to deliver a design-build project through each stage of development and make their presentation to the nation’s leading design-builders. This year’s project is a parking facility with education classrooms on a liberal arts college campus in the Midwest United States. This two-phase competition gives teams from colleges and universities a chance to respond to a Request for Qualifications (the first phase) and a Request for Proposals (the second phase), with the top 3 teams from the RFP phase presenting their proposals to a panel of industry leaders at the 2022 Design-Build Conference & Expo in Las Vegas next week.

Congratulations to our 2022 Design-Build Student
