Design-Build & Federal Projects

More Important Than Ever

Design-build has been at the heart of recovery efforts in times of crisis for decades. In 2019, Federal Design-Build Symposium presenters highlighted hurricane recovery projects at Tyndall Air Force Base and Camp Lejeune and the importance of developing a design-build mindset in delivering complex and innovative projects serving our nation.

In this year’s COVID-19 environment, these issues are more important than ever.
