SGS, LLC is pleased to announce that Eddie Scott, President & CEO of the firm, has received recognition as a Designated Design-Build Professional™ by the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA).
Mr. Scott, who started SGS back in January 1999, has demonstrated his experience, knowledge and dedication to the Design-Build method of construction procurement. His 38 years of experience in the construction field proved invaluable during the courses and while sitting for the exam. This designation identifies Scott as a professional with a qualified and quantified level of expertise in design-build construction.
The DBIA program focuses on all aspects of the design-build process which utilizes integrated project delivery methods to achieve high performance projects. The designation means that a professional has successfully fulfilled the requirements of the program based on professional experience, education and program course completion which includes fundamentals of project delivery, principles of design-build project delivery, and design-build contract and risk management.
“My experience with the design-build process dates back to the 1980’s and I felt that my experience coupled with becoming a Designated Professional would be a tremendous asset to our company,” said Scott. The Design Build method of construction can shorten the delivery time on projects, costs are minimized due to less change orders throughout the project and in so doing will also cut costs on the overall project. SGS’s approach to construction works well with the model of teaming with professional designers and engineers and offering Owners the best finished product for a competitive price. Mr. Scott is among only 16 Designated Professionals in Oklahoma and among 450 in the nation.
The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) was founded in 1993 in response to the emergence of design-build and integrated project delivery as a significant force in the design and construction industry. From its headquarters in Washington, DC, and network of chapters throughout the U.S., the Institute provides a forum for all participants in the design-build process, owners and practitioners alike. DBIA is the center of expertise for integrated project delivery, advocating best practices, creating and disseminating educational information, and furnishing advice and support to facility owners and users.
