The Northwest Region was chartered in 2002 for Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington by professionals representing all aspects of the design and construction industry in the Northwest. We support and promote the use of integrated design and construction for both public and private use.

DBIANW's educational program year runs from September through June, with monthly topical programs dealing with Design-Build issues such as Transportation, Water/Waste Water, Sustainability, and Energy Efficient/High Performance Buildings.
