T.Y. Lin International (TYLI), a globally recognized, full-service infrastructure consulting firm, announces that Joseph Heller, P.E., TYLI Senior Project Manager, has successfully completed the Design-Build Institute of America's (DBIA) comprehensive education and certification testing program to achieve the design-build industry's highest designation as a nationally certified Design-Build Professional™. A prerequisite for this certification is two to six years of substantial, documented direct project experience in design-build project delivery.

As a Class of 2020 Designated Design-Build Professional™, Heller joins a growing industry of design-build (D-B) professionals, who are redefining project delivery throughout the United States. DBIA Certification is the nation's only measurable standard of an individual's knowledge of the Design-Build Done Right™ principles for project delivery. By completing these requirements, candidates earn the right to display "DBIA" after their names, identifying them to end-users and the industry at large as experienced design-build professionals. Maintaining the credential requires a minimum of 24 hours of continuing education credit every two years.

Heller has more than 15 years of experience in transportation and infrastructure project management and design, serving the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), Maricopa County Department of Transportation (MCDOT), and Arizona communities with planning, design, and construction services. He has worked on several D-B projects, including the ADOT SR 101, I-17 to Pima Road D-B project valued at over $184M, and the recently-awarded I-10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project, which is expected to begin construction in 2021.
