DBIA Southeast Region
Welcome to the Southeast Chapter of the Design-Build Institute of America, chartered in 1998 to serve design-build professionals in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. DBIA is a national membership organization that was founded in 1993 to advocate and advance single-source project delivery within the design and construction community.
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. In addition to public- and private-sector project owners, DBIA members include practitioners from all project phases.
The goal of DBIA Southeast is to foster relationships between owners, architects, engineers and construction firms and services. By offering market resources, educational programs, legislative efforts and networking opportunities to our members, we can enhance the design-build relationship among all professionals, in both the public and private sector.
About DBIA and Design-Build
The Design-Build Institute of America is the only organization that defines, teaches and promotes best practices in design-build. Design-build is an integrated approach that delivers design and construction services under one contract with a single point of responsibility. Owners select design-build to achieve best value while meeting schedule, cost and quality goals.
DBIA represents the entire design and construction industry. As an institute, our primary objective is to provide education, training, networking and support to all players involved in the design and construction industry. Members span the entire spectrum of design and construction professionals, including architects, engineers, specialty contractors, owners, consultants, lawyers, business development professionals, students and teachers. Non-members are also welcome to participate in courses, conferences and in earning their certification. In addition to the DBIA headquarters in Washington, D.C., a network of 14 Regions work collaboratively to deliver products and services to members and customers.
