Federal Design-Build Symposium

The Design-Build Institute of America will gather the nation’s leading federal sector design-builders for a one-of-a-kind virtual conference for industry and Owners. Design-build is playing a critical role in helping our nation during this pandemic and will be equally crucial to our economic recovery. The 2020 Design-Build Federal Symposium brings together key players from federal agencies and the design and construction industry for sessions focused on the challenges and opportunities we face in this COVID-19 environment.
