While many infrastructure projects are implemented in the conventional Design-Bid-Build method, Wright-Pierce has experience with a variety of alternative delivery methodologies including variations of Design-Build, Progressive Design-Build, and Construction Management at Risk. To better support alternative delivery projects, Dennis Davis, Senior Client Service Manager, has successfully completed the Design-Build Institute of America’s (DBIA) comprehensive education, training, and certification testing program to achieve the design-build industry’s designation as a nationally certified Associate Design-Build Professional®.
DBIA Certification is the nation’s only measurable standard of an individual’s knowledge of the Design-Build Done Right® principles, which are vital to successful project delivery. By completing these requirements—which touch on all aspects of design-build—candidates earn the right to display “Assoc. DBIA” after their names, identifying them as experienced design-build professionals.
Lisa Washington, DBIA Executive Director/CEO, notes that “DBIA’s Designated Design-Build Professional® certification program has grown exponentially over the years, mirroring the growth of the entire the design-build industry. In fact, many public and private owner solicitations now expressly encourage the inclusion of team members with DBIA® Certification in their expanding number of design-build projects. DBIA is proud to offer the industry’s gold standard in education and to continue to certify record numbers of dedicated design-build professionals each year.”
Wright-Pierce routinely works with municipalities and utilities to determine which delivery method(s) will best meet their specific goals and limitations (including financial and management constraints) to implement the planned project. Contact us today to learn more.
