Brown and Caldwell’s Steve Gates elected to Design-Build Institute of America National Board of Directors

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Dec. 10, 2015 —Brown and Caldwell, a leading environmental engineering and construction firm, today announced that Senior Vice President Steve Gates has been chosen by the Design-Build Institute of America’s nominating committee to serve on the organization’s National Board of Directors for 2016.

"Each year, the Nominations Committee seeks to ensure that those nominated to the Board inform our mission and values by multiple perspectives and expertise,” said Lisa Washington, CAE, Executive Director and CEO of DBIA.

Gates, responsible for design-build project development firm-wide for Brown and Caldwell,  is a 38-year industry veteran in program, design and construction management roles. A nationally-recognized expert in integrated project delivery, he has successfully managed the delivery of environmental facilities valued well over US $4 billion for major public utilities and Fortune 1000 clients, using program management, partnering and design-build contracting, as an engineer,  a contractor and an owner’s advisor.

 "The use of design build contracting is now routine throughout the environmental services business because of its many advantages over low bid general contracting,” said Gates. "I am honored to join this board and look forward to working with the DBIA community as we focus on advancing ‘Design-Build Done Right’ best practices in the coming year.”

Gates, who works out of Brown and Caldwell’s Boston office, will assume his post Jan. 1. The board of directors is comprised of owners, engineers, design-build construction contractors, architects, specialty trade contractors and other professionals to reflect DBIA’s growing community. Gates also serves on the board of directors for the Water Design-Build Council.
