SAN DIEGO, CA — With 22 years of continuous Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) award achievement, design-build projects continue to be an area of expertise for Hensel Phelps. Since their first design-build project delivery in 1977, Hensel Phelps has completed roughly 370 design-build projects nationwide. As the nation’s cities continue to grow, Hensel Phelps’ knowledge, collaboration, and technology continues to advance, allowing them to deliver more elevated projects.

“Design-Build is a project delivery that has proven results in delivering for our clients," said Brad Jeanneret, Hensel Phelps Executive Vice President. "A collaborative, integrated approach where accountability and teamwork are the norm. These are the types of projects our people thrive on. The collaborative environment in which our teams work, build amazing relationships."

Since receiving their first DBIA project award in 1999 for the City of Oakland (California) Administration Buildings, Hensel Phelps has received over 50 DBIA awards. Hensel Phelps continues to hold the highest amount of DBIA awards, and almost two dozen more than their second highest awarded competitor.
