Design Data to Exhibit at Design-Build Conference & Expo in Dallas next week
Next week Design Data will be exhibiting at the Design-Build Conference and expo in Dallas.
The Design-Build Conference & Expo will be held October 6-8 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel. The conference is the largest national gathering of the year for the design-build market, and the only event centered exclusively on design-build.
It’s estimated that 50 percent of projects costing more than $10 million are being completed using design-build project delivery. It’s a great time to be in the industry and push the trend forward!
For two decades, design-build practitioners, specialty contractors, and public and private owners have gathered annually for the Conference & Expo, which features nearly 2,000 attendees and exhibitors from across all design and construction sectors.
Design Data will be exhibiting in booth #1304. If you’re at the show, be sure to stop by to say hello and see SDS/2 in action! Learn more about what’s going on this week in Dallas and see the full conference schedule on DBIA’s website.

Call for Entries for the 2015 Excellence in Hot-Dip Galvanizing Awards
The American Galvanizers Association recently opened up the call for entries for the 2015 Excellence in Hot-Dip Galvanizing Awards. Every year the Excellence in Hot-Dip Galvanizing awards recognizes the use of hot-dip galvanizing by galvanizers, fabricators, architects, engineers, contractors, etc. in innovative and creative ways in their respective industries.
Hot-dip galvanized steel is used in a wide variety of applications in various industries. For this reason, AGA has divided the contest into these twelve sectors: Artistic, Bridge & Highway, Building & Architecture, Civic Contribution, Duplex Systems, Electrical, Utility & Communication, Food & Agriculture, Industrial, Original Equipment Manufacturing, Recreation & Entertainment, Transportation, and Water and Marine.
In addition to these twelve sectors, there will also be three special categories that require 15 years in service demonstrating the longevity of Galvanized steel. The three special categories are: International, Most Distinguished and Lifetime Achievement.
Learn more about the awards at the American Galvanizing Association’s website and find out how to submit your project.
