Welcome to the Design-Build Institute of America Florida Region

Integration is our Foundation

Welcome to the Design-Build Institute of America Florida Region’s website! This site was created for both individuals and organizations involved in the design-build method of project delivery within Florida.

Founded in 2001, the DBIA Florida Region is a membership organization committed to promoting and supporting the successful use of the design-build project delivery method regionally as well as nationally. We focus our efforts on increasing the successful use of innovative design-build teams on non-residential building, civil infrastructure and process industry projects. Best practices are disseminated through educational programs, regional/national conferences, publications and legislative efforts.  

We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our organization, membership, education, sponsorship and of course design-build project delivery.   

Congratulations to the 2014 Best Overall Design-Build Project of the Year!
SR 710 Big John Monahan Bridge Replacement Design-Build

Cone & Graham and Wantman Group took home the award for Best Overall Design-Build Project of the Year for 2014. Their winning project, SR &10 Big John Monahan Bridge Replacement, was also recognized as the winner in the transportation category.  The award was presented Nov. 6, 2014, during the DBIA FL Region's Annual Conference. 

Danielle Dux and Patty Therrien, P.E. accept the award on behalf of the Cone & Graham and Wantman Group Inc. Design-Build Team.

One of the unique aspects to this project was a strategic land purchase that allowed a bridge shortening of nearly 1000 feet. This resulted in approximately $15 million in taxpayer savings. Not only was the team able to complete the project with a significant savings, it was completed an impressive 104 days ahead of schedule.

Twelve additional awards were presented. All met or exceeded owner expectations. CLICK HERE to view the complete listing of award recipients.
