Design-Build Institute of America DBIA
Established in 1993, the organisation came out of a collaboration formed of architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals who felt strongly about the importance of this approach to project design and delivery.
In addition to providing an opportunity for collaboration, DBIA offers education and certification programmes including its Design-Build Done Right universal best practices approach. Introduced in 2014, this offering categorises 10 best practices and supporting techniques into three areas: procuring services, contracting services and executing the delivery of projects.
DBIA produces publications, including its Design-Build Manual of Practice. This reference manual includes definitions, selection procedures, project execution checkpoints, tenets of professional ethics, risk management guidelines and so on.
