RS&H Vice President Jim Avitabile has been a big part of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) in his home state of Florida. As region president, he helped expand DBIA membership, diversified initiatives and implemented a successful awards program that made the region financially sustainable.
It only make sense that Avitabile is being recognized on the national DBIA stage. Avitabile will receive a 2018 Transportation Leadership Award at the Design-Build Transportation Conference in March. It’s a conference that Avitabile has seen double in size since he became involved with DBIA.
