The Design-Build Project/Team Awards Program honors the best of the best in design-build project delivery. Year after year, we gather to honor projects and teams that push the envelope and challenge the status quo, all for the sake of improving our industry and raising the bar as it relates to cost and schedule performance, quality, innovation, Owner satisfaction and triple-bottom line success.

Competition Awards and Categories

DBIA’s National Project/Team awards are given annually to projects that exemplify the principles of Design-Build Done Right®. The categories awarded include:

  • Design-Build Merit Awards
  • Design-Build Awards of Merit and Excellence
  • Best In Awards
  • Chair’s Award
  • Project of the Year

Submissions are judged by DBIA’s Awards Jury, a panel of industry experts who evaluate each project for design-build process, excellence in design and teaming performance. Our awards jurors report that each year the bar gets raised on the definition of what it takes to be a standout project.

Each year, winning projects and teams are honored during the Awards Celebration at DBIA’s Design-Build Conference & Expo.

Projects Database

Each year’s award winners are included amongst hundreds of successful design-build projects in DBIA’s Projects Database. The Projects Database is searchable by project type, size and location and provides detailed information about cost/schedule, added value and innovative solutions that resulted from a collaborative design-build approach.
