Neel-Schaffer, Inc., announced that Matt Lifsey, PE, DBIA, has completed the Design-Build Institute of America’s comprehensive education and certification testing program and is now nationally certified as a Design-Build Professional.

Lifsey’s experience at SCDOT, combined with his work for Neel-Schaffer, gives him a unique understanding of best practices in various phases of Design-Build project delivery, including from the owner’s perspective as well as the private sector’s perspective.

According to the Design-Build Institute of America, DBIA certification “is the nation’s only measurable standard of an individual’s knowledge of the Design-Build Done Right principles vital to successful project delivery.”
