Three healthcare facilities are among projects announced as winners of this year's Design-Build Institute of America’s (DBIA) National Design-Build Project Awards Competition.
The awards competition recognizes the achievements of owners and design-build teams in 10 categories across the spectrum of horizontal and vertical construction. To be considered for a prize, a project must have been completed on time and on budget.
The jury examined each submission for demonstrated use of DBIA best practices, which include flexibility in blending experience and work procedures, and shared motivations and incentives for a high level of performance. Additional best practices focus on the creation of a truly integrated team via collocation of team members during design and construction, and procedures that ensure open and honest communication and an environment characterized by trust.
The Warrior in Transition Barracks, Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, Colorado, won the Healthcare Facilities—National Design-Build Award; UCI Medical Center Clinical Laboratory in Orange, California, won the Healthcare Facilities—Design-Build Honor Award; and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland won the Healthcare Facilities—Design-Build Merit Award.
