MORRILTON, AR – Brian Rohlman with the TOLM Group has successfully completed the Design-Build Institute of America’s (DBIA) comprehensive education, training and certification testing program to achieve the design-build industry’s designation as a nationally certified Associate Design-Build Professional.™

Rholman said, “Design-build is the wave of the future for the construction industry.  I am excited to add this certification to my professional resume and even more excited about the level of value this will add for our design-build clients.  The whole process of delivering a client’s design and construction project under one contract saves our clients time, money, and headaches.  The DBIA will be a great resource for our firm as we continue to provide that value-added service to our clients.”

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. By completing these requirements, which touch on all aspects of design-build, candidates earn the right to display “Assoc.

Lisa Washington, DBIA Executive Director/CEO said, “DBIA’s Designated Design-Build Professional™ certification program has grown exponentially over the years mirroring the growth of the entire the design-build industry. In fact, many public and private owner solicitations now expressly encourage the inclusion of team members with DBIA™ Certification in their expanding number of design-build projects. DBIA is proud to offer the industry’s gold standard in education and to continue to certify record numbers of dedicated design-build professionals each year.”
