Design-Build in the Federal Sector

Design-build Owners and industry interested in federal sector projects will come together this August for the 2021 Federal Design-Build Symposium.

Two of the biggest challenges facing federal project managers are gaps in time and budget. Design-build can help close those gaps and will play a critical role in delivering the nation’s most cost and schedule-efficient economic recovery projects. As the prospect for a federal infrastructure investment package appears more likely than ever, its important teams are ready to respond to federal Owners’ need for qualified design-build pros.

DBIA’s Federal Design-Build Symposium will provide 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.

We Hope to See You in August

Save the Date

We've missed you and look forward to seeing you in-person August 25-26 at the Hyatt Regency in Crystal City, Virginia (Washington, D.C. metro area) or online at our virtual event.

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.
