Inspire your project. Inspire your future.

The Design-Build for Water/Wastewater Conference brings professionals together for three days of dynamic speakers, networking events, and the latest on design-build trends in the water/wastewater sector.

As the only design-build event targeted to the water/wastewater sector, we provide unique opportunities for you to network with peers – both Owners and practitioners – allowing you to make connections that power career and business opportunities, expand your professional reach, and create long-lasting impact.

Water/Wastewater Owners Leadership Awards

DBIA is proud to honor Owners in the water/wastewater industry who have made significant contributions in advancing the awareness, understanding and use of the design-build project delivery method. Each year, DBIA Owner Awards are presented to Owners who have impacted our industry.

“As someone new to design-build, the Design-Build for Water /Wastewater Conference was a great forum for me to learn the basics of how design-build works in all categories of delivery types, and also provided me a means to network with professionals of the highest level expertise. I came away from the conference with more confidence on how to tackle a design-build project.”

Brent Christ, DBIA, Supervisor Construction, DC Water

“I’ve been going to the DBIA Water/Wastewater Conference as an owner for 8 years, and every time I come I gain useful information. The reinforcement of best practices is always helpful and the opportunity to learn something new presents itself every time I attend.”

Ahmad Awan, Project Engineer, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories

“The DBIA conference was very rewarding for me professionally. I brought back new and novel ideas moving forward. I can’t wait to join you in Oregon next year.”
