The WDBC extends a warm welcome to companies engaged in integrated design-build and construction services in North America who would like to join our members who are committed to building and advocating water and wastewater industry best practices.

Regular Member

Regular membership is open to companies with in-house engineering capabilities that design and build public and investor-owned, rate-regulated utility water or wastewater infrastructure projects. WDBC membership also includes firms who operate as prime construction management at-risk (CMAR) contractors or provide services under a risk-sharing arrangement with a partner.

Allied Member

Allied membership is open to firms who are growing their design-build practice and are providing water and wastewater design-build services either independently or as a subcontractor and/or are currently working or have the capability to work in some capacity on design-build or CMAR water projects with a partnering firm.

Advisor Member

Advisor membership is an affiliated category of firms such as legal and finance, equipment suppliers, non-engineering consultants, contractors, vendors, trade associations and academic institutions providing products and services and currently working or desiring to work with engineering companies in some capacity in the water design-build sector.

Advisor Member Information and Application

Dues and Membership

Dues are based on the prior year’s gross revenues generated from water/wastewater design-build and CMAR projects.

Regular (Annual revenue of $40 million or more)
$35,000 annual dues

Allied (Annual revenue of $20 million or less)
$15,000 annual dues

Advisor
$5,000 annual dues

Membership is tied to the company paying the fee, with each regular member firm having one representative and one alternate to the board of directors who participate in all meetings and committee activities. The designated representative to the board of directors is also eligible for election as an officer. Allied members participate in committee activities and projects and attend meetings, but do not have an official vote on the board of directors and cannot be elected as an officer. To achieve voting representation on the board of directors, allied members will form a representative group for a position and vote on the board. Advisor members participate in committees to develop practitioner guides and provide input into ongoing research, but do not have a vote on the board of directors.
