    The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) has announced its 19th annual Design-Build Project/Team Award Winners. Recognized for exemplary collaboration and integration in design-build project delivery, the award-winning projects were evaluated by a distinguished panel of industry experts. The selected projects demonstrate Design-Build Done Right through excellence in design, process and teaming, in addition to achieving budget and schedule goals and exceeding owner expectations.
    The 2014 Design-Build Project/Team Awards showcase design-build best practices and celebrate the achievements of owners and design-build teams in nine categories across the spectrum of horizontal and vertical construction. These categories include: aviation, civic buildings, commercial/office buildings, industrial/process/research facilities, educational facilities, healthcare facilities, rehabilitation/renovation/restoration, transportation and water/wastewater.
    “This year’s award competition was the most rigorous to date with a greater emphasis on best practices and teamwork, as well as the successful delivery of the project,” says Lisa Washington, CAE, Executive Director/CEO, DBIA. "As a result, the 2014 winners showcase unique applications of design-build best practices to raise the industry’s bar even higher and are shining examples of what can be accomplished through Design-Build Done Right."
