WDBC Executive Director Mark Alpert, President of Integrated Delivery Solutions in Colorado, is a former Senior Vice President for Design-Build at CH2M HILL located in Denver, CO. A founding member, past president and member of the Board of Directors, for the Water Design-Build Council, Alpert brings to the WDBC a strong knowledge of the Council’s commitment to research, owner education, and development of source materials all designed to inform owners and practitioners on the best practices of the industry’s design-build and design-build-operate delivery approaches.
For over 35 years, Mark has been a pioneer in the development of integrated project delivery for water and wastewater projects. Even before the term “design-build” was commonly recognized, Mark was focusing on cost-effective design and construction, which led to the formalization of design-build and other alternate project delivery methods. Mark has directly influenced the successful development and delivery of more than 75 design-build projects for CH2M HILL. Among Mark’s many accomplishments, he has held numerous positions in industry organizations. He has been an active member of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) since 1995 and has served on the Board of the Water Design-Build Council since its inception in 2006. In 2009 he was given the Brunelleschi Lifetime Achievement Award.
