About DBIA

What is DBIA?

Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) is a membership organization that was founded in 1993 to advocate and advance single-source project delivery within the design and construction community. The Rocky Mountain Region of the DBIA was founded in 2002 to focus on this objective throughout Colorado, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming. The design-build method of project delivery embraces architecture, engineering, and construction services under a single contract, thereby re-integrating the roles of designer and constructor. The DBIA Rocky Mountain Region’s members include practitioners from all project phases, as well as public and private sector project owners. The DBIA works to disseminate best practices by hosting and conducting educational programs and conferences throughout the year. In addition, within the Rocky Mountain region, the organization supports research and education focused on the design-build process through its annual design-build award contest for collegiate chapters.


DBIA will be the industry’s preeminent resource for LEADERSHIP, EDUCATION, OBJECTIVE EXPERTISE and BEST PRACTICES for the successful integrated delivery of capital projects.
