Two years ago, Rosendin began a process to re-imagine how our teams perform design-build projects. The result is the development of an internal certification program for Rosendin employees who work on design-build projects.

The team developing this certification program includes individuals from various departments, including Preconstruction, Engineering, BIM, Training, Project Management, and Field Operations. Throughout 2021 and 2022, this team worked to determine the skill sets needed for the successful delivery of design-build projects, developed a manual, and implemented an evaluation process by which Rosendin employees can become certified.

Now known as Rosendin Design Build (RDB), this team actively works to ensure that all Rosendin design-build projects include at least one RDB-certified construction professional. RDB is working toward a goal of having all project leads on any design-build project certified under this program.

WHY RDB CERTIFICATION?
The assembly of a design-build team is key, and understanding the roles and responsibilities of each team member is of the utmost importance. As each person executes their portion of the project, there is an expectation that all team members are accountable to the project team. In addition, the use of metrics is essential to provide RDB teams with real-time feedback on how successfully they are executing work and following the RDB process. Metrics are intended to be based on quantifiable data and made available at predictable intervals or milestones, including budget conformance, customer satisfaction, project rework/changes, schedule conformance, and project efficiency.

“It’s not difficult to convince customers of the benefits of design-build.”

“They know that the design-build process brings a collaborative spirit, practical perspectives, and cost-effective design to projects,” said Ron Wilson, P.E., Vice President, Engineering.

“Individuals interested in completing the program can submit a request form to learn more about the criteria and timeline. More than 25 Rosendin construction professionals have participated in the program, with 25 currently certified.”
