DBIA Milestone: 2011, Ohio embraces design-build - part 1
DBIA
The Ohio of the late 1800s was nothing like the Ohio of 2011. It didn't have the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cedar Point's roller coasters or the interstate highways connecting Cincinnati to Cleveland. What the Ohio of both centuries had, however, was a construction policy that caused confusion and unnecessary complications. Though some attempts had been made to make changes, spring 2011 was the first time a substantial effort would be invested by an association dedicated to integrated project delivery: the Design-Build Institute of America. DBIA had only been around for 18 years, but we were about to be a part of changing Ohio law that had been in place for over a century.
