dbia_logoJames Construction proudly announces that Craig E. Stevenson, Jamie A. Stevenson, David S. Kmonk II, and Sean Hreha have been recognized as Designated Design-Build Professionals by the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA).

DBIA offers certification in design-build project delivery, its program educates owners as well as designers and builders on team-centered approaches to design and construction. Owners want successfully executed design-build projects and are looking for a demonstration of both relevant continuing education and experience  both of which can be gained through DBIA certification.

The Designated Design-Build Professional certification program provides the only measureable standard by which to judge “Design-build done right.” “Design-build done right” requires more than a good contract and appropriate risk allocation. Everyone from the owner to the subcontractors must understand the process, the expectations and fully engage in the collaborative process. The growing number of both Associate DBIA designees and DBIA Professional designees attest to the value local, state and federal governments see in educating their staffs in DBIA best practices. The Designated Design-Build Professional certification program has grown exponentially over the past ten years, and not surprisingly as it mirrors the expansion of design-build itself.

James Construction has extensive experience in design-build project delivery and is among a few certified professionals in Western Pennsylvania.
