With the implementation of the historic infrastructure investment underway, it is an important time for design-build teams to come together and answer federal Owners’ calls to deliver the most innovative, resilient, and cost- and time-efficient projects possible.

This year’s Design-Build Institute of America’s Federal Design-Build Symposium is crafted for this unique time in our history.

Federal agencies experienced in design-build will learn how to take the delivery method to a new level to optimize triple bottom line success. Those new to or considering design-build will learn first-hand the power of collaborative delivery. And industry leaders will gain insight into Federal sector challenges and opportunities, and the role they can play in delivering exceptional project outcomes.

Save the date and join us in Arlington, Virginia in the DC region on July 26-27.
