Our Director of Design-Build, Jennifer Davis, recently completed the requirements for the nationally recognized Designated Design-Build Professional™ (DBIA™) certification. In addition, Melissa Testa, Project Manager, has earned the Associate DBIA™ credential.
DBIA certification demonstrates a commitment to design-build done right. These design and construction professionals have mastered the best practices associated with the entire design-build process from project procurement through post-award. Successful completion of coursework, formal examination in all aspects of design-build project delivery, and professional references are required for certification. Three to six years substantial design-build work experience is an additional prerequisite for Designated Design-Build Professional™ certification.
Sordoni is focused on continually evolving our practices and capabilities to be a stronger partner to our clients. Gaining a deeper understanding of this increasingly popular project delivery approach adds a strategic advantage for us in pursuing future design-build opportunities in an evolving market. The design-build delivery method continues to gain momentum because it offers clear advantages over the traditional design-bid-build process. It’s also worth noting that this delivery method has been shown to contribute improved schedules, increased opportunity for innovative problem solving and more profound collaboration among all project stakeholders.
