President's Message


One of the DBIA Florida Region’s goals this year is to increase educational opportunities for owners and practitioners and to serve as better advocates for collaborative delivery methods. We partnered with the ASCE Florida Section and provided training on “The Fundamentals of Collaborative Delivery Methods” at 4 locations across the state last quarter – Tallahassee, Orlando, Tampa, and Fort Lauderdale.

The workshops were attended by more than 250 procurement, architecture/engineering, construction, and facility management professionals representing the vertical, transportation, and water/wastewater market segments. I would like to thank all DBIA members that assisted in the presentations, especially John Giachino for championing the Fort Lauderdale workshop. We extend our appreciation to the ASCE Florida Section for including the DBIA Florida Region as part of their team. ‚Äč
