26 Jan 2020 Crow Group’s Brian Rohlman earns design-build certification
Brian Rohlman with the Crow Group has successfully completed the Design-Build Institute of America’s (DBIA) comprehensive education, training and certification testing program to achieve the design-build industry’s designation as a nationally certified Associate Design-Build Professional.
Rohlman is the president of Crow Group, a Central Arkansas-based construction and engineering firm. He is a licensed professional engineer with more than 13 years working as a civil engineer in the construction and utility industries. He holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Arkansas and is a member of the National Society of Professional Engineers.
“Design-build is the wave of the future for the construction industry,” said Rohlman. “I am excited to add this certification to my professional resume and even more excited about the level of value this will add for our design-build clients. The whole process of delivering a client’s design and construction project under one contract saves our clients time, money and headaches. The DBIA will be a great resource for our firm as we continue to provide that value-added service to our clients.”
DBIA Certification is the nation’s only measurable standard of an individual’s knowledge of the Design-Build Done Right™ principles that are vital to successful project delivery. By completing these requirements, which touch on all aspects of design-build, candidates earn the right to display “Assoc. DBIA” after their names, identifying them to design-build end-users and the industry at large as experienced design and construction professionals with a firm understanding of design-build project delivery.
DBIA Executive Director/CEO Lisa Washington said, “DBIA’s Designated Design-Build Professional™ certification program has grown exponentially over the years, mirroring the growth of the entire design-build industry. In fact, many public and private owner solicitations now expressly encourage the inclusion of team members with DBIA™ Certification in their expanding number of design-build projects. DBIA is proud to offer the industry’s gold standard in education and to continue to certify record numbers of dedicated design-build professionals each year.”
Three to six years substantial design and construction experience is an additional prerequisite for certification. Maintaining the credential requires a minimum of 24 hours of continuing education credit every two years. For more information about the Design-Build Institute of America visit dbia.org.
