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.  The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) is the professional association that defines, teaches and promotes best practices in design-build. 

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. 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.

DBIA is shaping the future of the design and construction industry by developing comprehensive and fair design-build contract documents, delivering design-build project management information through educational programs, influencing procurement and licensing legislation and teaching owners about the design-build process and its benefits.
