The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) has elected Steven Wilson, HMC Architects’ Principal, Associate DBIA, to its Western Pacific Region Board of Directors. Wilson joins a board of design-build innovators who are focused on promoting efficiencies of an integrated design-build approach.

The DBIA Western Pacific Region is a membership organization founded to advocate and advance single source project delivery within the design and construction community. The design-build method of project delivery embraces architecture, engineering and construction services under a single contract, thereby re-integrating the roles of designer and constructor. In addition to public- and private-sector project owners, DBIA members include practitioners from all project phases.

“I’m honored to add my leadership experience from the design side of project delivery to the great body of knowledge on this board,” says Wilson. “Representing every aspect of the industry, my hope is that we can continue to improve the design-build model for all and increase its use.”

A long-time advocate of collaborative design and construction delivery models, Wilson has led several hospital replacements, renovations and upgrades for major healthcare providers. A healthcare principal with more than 20 years of experience, he specializes in healthcare facility design and project management.

Wilson, along with his fellow newly appointed board members, will assume this leadership position in January 2019.
