DBIA Fellows

DBIA Fellows

DBIA established the College of Fellows in 2018 as a new designation within the organization. Being a DBIA Fellow is an elite status that recognizes the achievements of the most accomplished Designated Design-Build Professionals. By meeting rigorous requirements and making notable contributions to DBIA and design-build in general, these professionals have proven to be the best of the best in the design-build industry and by honoring them with Fellow status, DBIA is celebrating their career achievements and dedication to promoting DBIA principles. A new class is selected each year and are honored during the annual Design-Build Conference & Expo.
