DBS Group project manager earns national certification
Rochester resident and construction project manager Brian Sheehan of DBS Group has earned certification in the Design-Build Institute of America. Sheehan’s designation as a nationally certified Associate Design-Build Professional signifies his extensive education and experience in the nation’s fastest-growing commercial construction method.
Design-build is where one entity, the design-builder, contracts with the project owner to provide both design and construction services. The method increases collaboration and communication between the owner, designer and contractor. That, in turn, increases cost efficiencies, reduces change orders and speeds the construction schedule — all while meeting or exceeding overall project goals. Based on dollar volume, design-build accounts for almost half of all design and construction spending in the U.S., according to FMI, a national engineering and construction consulting firm.
As the nation’s only measurable standard of a professional’s knowledge of design-build project delivery, the DBIA certification identifies Sheehan as a design and construction professional who knows and exercises best practices in the method.
