A jury of industry experts will evaluate project submissions primarily on successful achievement of the owner’s project goals through implementation of design-build best practices as defined by DBIA’s Design-Build Manual of Practice. Submissions should highlight the design-build team’s collaborative efforts to add value to the project. DBIA best practices include but are not limited to early integration of key team members during the proposal process via charrette or other collaborative outreach effort; collocation of project team members to encourage coordination between design and construction team members; and the use of incentives within the project team.
