This track will explore the importance of setting the stage for success through effective strategies for planning, procurement, engagement, etc., to foster exceptional outcomes for all.

Track 2 – Putting on Our Progressive Lenses: Exploring PDB in Action

As the use of design-build continues to grow, so does the flexibility in ways to procure design-build services.

Track 3 - Stronger Together: Leveraging the Power of the Team to Drive Innovation and Success

This track will examine the ways in which design-build’s focus on teaming uniquely positions the industry to navigate complex challenges and present innovative solutions by leveraging the power of the team. Examine how both big and small teaming successes can impact the bottom line and how design-build promotes effective collaboration and teaming.
