The Future is Now

It’s an exciting time to be a design-build team member. Not only is our industry creating innovative and creative ways to collaborate on highly successful projects, but we’re also using Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) tools to take that team collaboration to new heights.

As the only membership association in the nation representing the entire spectrum of design and construction professionals, DBIA is on the front lines of industry transformation through collaboration. That’s why DBIA is expanding our focus on technology and innovation, providing strategies for design-build teams working to maximize their collaboration. Each day, we see design-build teams embrace innovation and technology to create effective, efficient, and transparent processes that allow every project team member to work together as one.

We know Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) will drive that continued success. DBIA is here to help lead that transformation with targeted education, training and resources.

The Power of BIM in Design-Build

On big projects and small, BIM has become valued not only for its three-dimensional illustration of a design but also for its ability to help measure impacts that possible changes could have on cost and schedule. It’s no surprise that the use of Building Information Modeling or BIM has become so popular among design-builders. Listen to our podcast for more.
