David Bloxom, chairman of Fort Worth, Texas-based architectural, structural and utility precast producer Speed Fab-Crete Corp., has been named DBIA Fellow, the group’s highest level of certification. The Institute credits him as a champion for the design-build method who has helped deliver hundreds of such projects in his four-plus decades with Speed Fab-Crete. A past DBIA president and current Southwest Region director, Bloxom also plays a vital role in helping the certification process grow as a DBIA Certified Instructor for the Professional Certification Program and Design-Build Certification Board member.

“Design-build is the fastest growing and most popular delivery method in our nation’s architecture, engineering and construction industry. Much of that success is driven by the incredible leadership of design-build innovators like those elevated to the DBIA College of Fellows. The addition of new DBIA Fellows in 2019 is just one indicator of the depth of experience and passion for collaboration which drives design-build’s success nationwide,” says College Chancellor Jim Whitaker, FAIA, FDBIA of Dallas-based architect HKS Inc.
