We’re advancing Better Projects, Together, through the power of collaborative delivery.

The Water Collaborative Delivery Association, formerly known as the Water Design-Build Council, is a leading professional association dedicated to advancing successful collaborative delivery solutions for the water and wastewater industry. Since our inception in 2006, we’ve served as a leading source of best practices, knowledge, and resources with the tools designed to help owners, design-build firms, engineering firms, construction firms, and suppliers leverage the power of collaborative delivery to achieve better project outcomes, together.

From accelerating critical repairs and jumpstarting new systems, to helping owners and communities find innovative paths forward to maximize water resources while keeping delivery safe, economical, and sustainable, we believe that collaborative delivery methods such as design-build and construction management at-risk have the power to transform water systems with more efficiency, effectiveness, and success.
