Michigan Chapter

The Michigan Chapter of DBIA was established in 2010.  Educational events are held periodically including a Spring and Fall Forum.

The Chapter Executive Committee comprises a President, a President-Elect, an Immediate Past President, and four Vice Presidents.  These seven Officers plus ten other Members at Large make up the Chapter Board of Directors.  Five committees address the subjects of Programs, Owner Relations, Membership, Public-Private Partnerships, and Legislation.  Board meetings are held most months.  Interested persons are invited and encouraged to come.  Contact any Officer or other Board Member if you wish to attend or otherwise have interest in the Chapter.


DBIA Michigan Chapter will be Michigan’s preeminent resource for leadership, education, objective expertise and best practices for the successful integrated delivery of capital projects.


DBIA promotes the value of design-build project delivery and teaches the effective integration of design and construction services to ensure success for owners and design and construction practitioners.
