About the Northwest Region of DBIA

In 2002 a group of architects, engineers, and contractors chartered the Design-Build Institute of America Northwest Region (DBIANW) to support and promote the use of integrated design and construction practices for public and private projects throughout Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Design-build construction spending is anticipated to grow 18% nationally from 2018-2021, and DBIANW’s primary goals are to educate our members on how to win design-build projects, and once secured, how to successfully execute and deliver these projects. We also aim to be the local and regional “go-to” resource for owners and members of the A/E/C community regarding trends, case studies, educational programming, legislative updates, certification, and events related to design-build in the Transportation, Water/Wastewater, Higher Education, K-12, Healthcare, and Military/Federal markets.

In addition to excellent networking opportunities, our monthly programming covers topics such as project procurement, risk management, team building, case studies and lessons-learned, and perennial favorite – Owners’ Pipeline, where a panel of owners discuss upcoming design-build projects.
