As the use of design-build continues to grow in all construction sectors, so has the number of projects that are enhancing communities in myriad ways. The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) announces this year's roster of Project/Team Award Winners, evaluated and selected by experts in this project-delivery methodology. Each Merit Award winner goes on to compete for a National Award of Excellence and Project of the Year to be announced at the organization's annual conference in November.

"Across all sectors and project sizes, these winners demonstrate the power of collaboration in projects that are as varied as they are resilient, innovative, cost-effective, and beautiful to behold," says Executive Director Lisa Washington. "We're proud to honor them for showing the nation there’s a better way to build."
