The Nation’s Only Design-Build Event for the Federal Sector

August, 25-26, 2021
Washington DC Metro Area

Inspire your project. Inspire your future.

Design-build has played a critical role in the federal sector’s pandemic response and will be vital to our nation’s post-COVID-19 recovery. There’s a possibility for federal infrastructure investment to help spur that recovery. That’s why, now more than ever, it’s important that design-build teams in the federal sector prepare for what lies ahead.

We hope to hold our August 2021 Federal Design-Build Symposium in-person; however, your safety is our number one concern. We’re watching events closely and will keep you posted on the final format decision (and thus the date) but the event will happen – so plan on joining us in August for this year’s Federal Design-Build Symposium.

We Hope to See You In August

Save the Date

We've missed you and hope we can see you in-person August 25-26 at the Hyatt Regency in Crystal City, Virginia. Mark your calendars and plan to join us for a federal event that is more important and timely than ever as our nation works to rebuild our economy.

Registration will open this spring.

Federal Owner Scholarships

Design-build is only as successful as the Owners who implement it. That’s why DBIA is committed to bring Design-Build Done Right® education to federal Owners hoping to harness the value of design-build. Owners can also qualify for DBIA scholarships to defray your costs.

Here’s a Sample of What the Federal Design-Build Symposium is All About

This event was created by design-builders for design-builders and focused on the resources and tools the federal sector needs to meet the challenges our communities face nationwide. If you attended the event, you can still access that programming here.

If you missed it, watch our event video to see what it’s all about and then plan to join us in August this year.
