Six Kitchell Contractors Employee-Owners Complete DBIA Certification

PHOENIX, AZ — Six of Kitchell Contractors’ employee-owners recently completed the requirements to achieve Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) certification:
  • Phil Glenn – Kitchell Contractors Inc. Arizona
  • Ryan Hook – Kitchell Contractors Inc. Arizona
  • Matt Ognar – Kitchell Contractors Inc. Arizona
  • Morgan Sondreal – Kitchell CEM Northern California
  • John Van Whervin – Kitchell CEM Southern California
  • Bob Vincent – Kitchell Contractors Inc. Southern California

“Design-build has been the catalyst over the past decade for how we can effectively change project delivery for the better,” Van Whervin said.

To be eligible for DBIA certification, individuals must have five years of active involvement in Design-Build projects, three professional recommendations, 18 continuing education credits and complete four core courses: the Fundamentals of Project Delivery, Principles of Design-Build Project Delivery, Design-Build Contract and Risk Management and Post Award Design-Build. This is followed by a certification exam consisting of 100 questions.

“Getting DBIA certification enhances the services we provide for our clients,” Sondreal said. “I also love learning new things and believe that learning never stops.”

DBIA certification demonstrates that an individual has an understanding of best practices in every phase of design-build project delivery, from proposal preparation to substantial completion. DBIA is an association of leaders in the design and construction industry utilizing design-build and integrated project delivery methods to execute high-performance projects.
