From Army barracks in interior Alaska to a coral reef research facility in Florida, more than 40 construction projects have been recognized for advanced and innovative application of design-build best practices.

The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) announced the 2013 Design-Build Project Award winners July 31.

The U.S. Army Department of Public Works’ Fort Wainwright 336B Barracks is a 108,000-square-foot, three-story building located in Fairbanks, AK. The project was honored in the civic category.

Design-build is an integrated approach that delivers design and construction services under one contract with a single point of responsibility, according to DBIA.

Evaluated by a panel of industry experts, the award-winning projects were selected for demonstrating innovative project delivery, in addition to achieving budget and schedule goals and exceeding owner expectations, the organization said.

The awards are presented to projects in 10 categories: civic, commercial, correctional facilities, industrial/process/research facilities, educational facilities, healthcare, office, rehabilitation/renovation/restoration, transportation and water/wastewater. 

DBIA says it will announce a Best Overall Award Winner and Design Excellence Award Winner at the Design-Build Conference and Expo, scheduled Nov. 4-6 in Las Vegas.

Design-Build ‘Done Right’

“These winning projects exemplify the principles of interdisciplinary teamwork, innovation and problem solving and are shining examples of what can be accomplished through effective collaboration in design-build delivery,” said Lisa Washington, executive director/CEO, DBIA.

The new research facility for the Center for Excellence for Coral Reef Ecosystem Science, at Nova Southeastern University in Hollywood, FL, incorporates eco-friendly design and construction elements. The project was recognized in the Industrial/Process/Research Facilities category.

“The 2013 Design-Build Project Awards serve to celebrate the people and projects that demonstrate what design-build done right can achieve to advance our industry and our economy.”

The DBIA Design-Build Project Awards are comprised of the National Design-Build Award, the Design-Build Honor Award, and the Merit Award.
