“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 next year.”
