Targeted Owner Design-Build Resources

Design-build is only as successful as the owners who implement it. That’s why the Design-Build for Water/Wastewater Conference is designed with both public and private Owners’ needs in mind.

From our popular Owners-Only Forum — allowing frank conversations among peers — to sessions on Owner Advisors, best practices and more, this event is designed to help Owners prepare for the historic opportunities 2022 brings.

Owners can apply to defray attending costs by requesting hotel assistance or a travel stipend (all scholarships include complimentary registration) through our owner scholarship program. Limited scholarships are available.

“The conference was a great opportunity to hear about current trends and issues relevant to design-build in the transportation sector. Furthermore, it's always helpful to network with other to gain a broader perspective from other owners, from practitioners, and from contractors nationwide.”

Irene Chhor, Denver International Airport

“The Design-Build for Transportation/Aviation Conference greatly exceeded my expectations. Being new to design-build, it was an incredible opportunity to network with others from all over the country, and to gain valuable insight and review lessons learned to be successful in design-build delivery. DBIA and this conference setting provided plenty of discussion and a variety of topics to be dissected, effectively and efficiently. As an Owner, this conference really delivered on what it means to truly be a successful owner when you’ve selected this delivery method."
