The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) awarded designated status to Kacy upon her successful completion of coursework and formal examination in all aspects of design-build project delivery. By completing these requirements, candidates earn the right to display “DBIA” after their names, identifying them to design-build end-users and the industry at large as professionals experienced in this form of project delivery.
