This marks the Western Pacific Region’s 13th Annual Design-Build Awards Competition! To be considered for a Regional Design-Build Award, projects must demonstrate successful application of design-build best practices as defined by the DBIA Design-Build Manual of Practice. These include: early integration of key team members during the proposal process via a proposal charrette or other collaborative outreach effort and close coordination between design and construction team members from the design development stage through field construction. The acceptance of single-entity risk is a defining feature of design-build project delivery and winning submissions must be carried out under a DBIA or other singleresponsibility contract. Only projects completed on time, on budget and without litigation will be considered for an award. Projects are honored for design and construction that meets or exceeds owner expectations. 


Please note **New Awards Category** - Award of Excellence for Lean in Design-Build

The formal Western Pacific Region’s Design-Build Awards will be made during the Design-Build Awards Program on Thursday, May 16, 2019 in Napa, California.

Judges awarded 12 teams with Design/Build Awards. Judges comments on this year's program:

"The entire entry pool was exceptional."

"These has been a very interesting experience, great projects and huge depth of challenges, innovation, variation and high performance – not an easy one to judge! The submittals truly show how Design Build has evolved to be a methodology that truly incorporates all components of the built environment including design excellence, schedule and cost compliance, leadership above all and value for client’s and stakeholders that most times exceed expectations. I am humbled to review these submissions."
