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

Design-Build in the Federal Marketplace

Design-build Owners and industry interested in federal sector projects come together each August for the Federal Design-Build Symposium. This event provides a unique opportunity for targeted design-build education, candid conversations and meaningful networking for design-build team members in the federal marketplace.

DBIA’s Federal Design-Build Symposium proudly offers federal teams with the innovative tools, design-build best practices, and federal policy insights needed to build high-performance teams delivering better projects — on-time and on-budget. From understanding the FAR to cutting edge design-build innovations, these sessions are designed to help federal design-build teams deliver on the promise of economic recovery.

Stay tuned for details on our 2022 event.
