Design-Build Certification Workshop

In 2012, six projects were given approval by Washington State's Project Review Committee to use Design-Build as the project delivery method.  That represents a significant increase from the two projects that were approved in 2011.  As more public agencies turn to alternative public works contracting methods (Design-Build and GC/CM) for larger projects, it is important that public agencies and the contracting community be knowledgeable about this tool.  In Washington State, the Design-Build law for public agencies is described in RCW 39.10.

Training:  DBIA (Design-Build Institute of America) is sponsoring a week long workshop on Design-Build.  It is part of the process for obtaining certification by DBIA.

When:  April 29, 2013 to May 3, 2013 (7:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)

Where:  Portland, Oregon (111 SW 5th Avenue)

Agenda by day:
  • Fundamentals of Project Delivery

  • Design-Build Contracts & Risk Management
  • Post Award Design-Build
