by: French Clements | November 10, 2020

ELS Associate Principals Susan Vutz and Kim-Van Truong have successfully completed the Design-Build Institute of America’s comprehensive education, training and certification testing program. Doing so means that they have achieved the design-build industry’s designation as Associate Design-Build Professionals, and allows them to add “Assoc. DBIA” to their credentials.

The process of DBIA Certification touches on all aspects of the design-build project delivery method. The certification program is open to architects (and owners, engineers and contractors) seeking to augment their approach to undertaking and completing projects. Three to six years of substantial design and construction experience are required to achieve certification, and maintaining the credential requires at least 24 hours of continuing education every two years.
