DBIA Honors the Best of the Nation’s 2017 Design-Build Projects


The Design-Build Institute of America is proud to announce its 2017 Design-Build Project/Team Award Winners. As the use of design-build continues to grow in all sectors so has the number of impressive project success stories. This year’s award winners are leading the industry by delivering some of the nation’s most impressive design-build projects.

“Whether it’s a beautiful public facility, small commercial building, bridge or transportation project, America’s design-builders are showing in a big way how the power of integrated delivery and collaboration is delivering real value to their communities. This year’s DBIA National Design-Build Project/Team Award winners are truly the best of the best. Their projects will not only improve the lives of millions of Americans they’ve also delivered innovative projects which provide time and cost savings at the same time. DBIA is thrilled to honor this impressive list of design-build projects and their contributions to improving our nation’s infrastructure.” …Lisa Washington, CAE, DBIA Executive Director/CEO

These award-winning projects were evaluated in nine categories by a distinguished panel of experts in design-build project delivery. Each of these Merit Award winners will go on to compete for a National Award of Excellence and Project of the Year to be announced at DBIA’s Design-Build Conference and Expo Awards Ceremony in November.
