The Design Build Institute of America Southwest Region is comprised of companies and professionals woking in five states -- Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. The association plans an annual conference and a golf tournament along with educational courses and sessions.

In today’s competitive environment, the need for collaboration among all project team players is more important than ever. DBIA provides unique opportunities to network with peers – both Owners and practitioners – allowing design-builders to make connections that power career and business opportunities, expand professional reach, and create long-lasting impact.  This is accomplished on a regional level as well as within our chapters.  

Our members may have joined DBIA for access to the nation’s best design-build education and professional certification that inspires both projects and futures. But most of them renew their dues each year because they’ve witnessed the power of collaborating with like-minded people. By promoting the value of design-build project delivery and teaching the effective integration of design and construction services, we ensure success for members across disciplines.


Most industry groups represent the interests of one profession. DBIA is different. We represent everyone who has a stake in the future of our industry — so whether you’re a designer, a construction pro, a project owner or a firm employing dozens of people, you’re welcome to the fold. We also invite students and teachers to help us shape the design-build industry for the next 50 years to come.


DBIA-SW has many different events during  the year. The nnual conference is generally held in the spring, An annual golf tournament is held in the early fall and chapter meetings happen in various locations during the year.  Check out our upcoming events by clicking on the link below.  We have a lot planned for 2021.
