Since its first edition in 2008, and through four subsequent updates, the Water Design-Build Council’s Water and Wastewater Design-Build Handbook has guided users on a step-by-step basis through the best practices for procuring, designing, and building public and private water or wastewater projects.
The handbook’s chapters are specifically structured to take an organization through the fundamental steps of making decisions on the collaborative-delivery model procurement, management, and implementation processes. DBIA’s best practices are used to reinforce the overall principles and guidance provided within the chapter topics.
Since education is WDBC’s mission, updates within this handbook are also reflected in the current modules presented at our education sessions.
