Event Details

October 22, 28, 29 – three half-days

The Canadian Design-Build Institute (CDBI) will be hosting our annual conference virtually this October to help inform the industry on the value of design-build methods. We look forward to another fun and educational event, albeit in a different format.

Our virtual conference will span three half-days, on October 22, 28 and 29. Each day will feature two sessions, running from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET. Here’s a sneak peek of what you can expect.

Day 1 – The future of design-build: Progressive design-build

Thursday, October 22                  1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

The first half of Day 1 will feature a speaker from the Design-Build Institute of America to provide an overview of the emerging progressive design-build methodology and explain how it’s done, why it’s the future, and what every design-builder needs to know.

After hearing from our American counterpart, the second half of Day 1 will focus on how progressive design-build is being used in Canada and the unique considerations that need to be made in the Canadian market.

Day 2 – Meeting the needs of project owners

Wednesday, October 28             1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

Day 2 will consist of a panel of owners with extensive experience using design-build. The panel will share their design-build insights, including the lessons they’ve learned over the years and the most crucial improvements they think must be made, both as an industry, and as individuals.

Day 3 – Mastering design-build

Thursday, October 29                 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

The virtual conference will be capped off with a presentation by an expert panel of CDBI council members from different sectors of the industry discussing how we can ensure that our design-build projects are not only successful, but that they are reaching new heights. Find out how you can maximize your design-build wins and set a new standard for the industry. As we all work to recover losses from the pandemic, it’s now more important than ever to achieve the most we can and show the industry why the future is design-build.

Attendees are welcome to register for any combination of the three days. Discounted registration is offered to CDBI members.
