KANSAS CITY, Missouri (March 16, 2018) — Kerrie Greenfelder, a senior project manager in the Burns & McDonnell Water group, has earned the Design-Build industry’s highest distinction as a nationally certified Design-Build Professional™. In order to earn the certification, Greenfelder completed the Design-Build Institute of America’s comprehensive education and certification testing program. The certification also requires two to six years direct project experience in design-build project delivery.
Greenfelder is a chemical engineer with advanced design-build experience in water, wastewater treatment processing and landfill projects. She has more than 18 years’ experience managing all aspects of multiple projects throughout the Midwest and Southwest for municipal, public, industrial, and federal clients.
“Design-build is our preferred method of project delivery because it gives our clients assurance that we can meet tight schedules and often allows us to find savings that result in final costs beating budget estimates,” says Ron Coker, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Burns & McDonnell Water group. “DBIA’s certification program is rigorous and demanding and Kerrie’s achievement in earning this designation is a real accomplishment.”
DBIA Certification is the nation’s only measurable standard of an individual’s knowledge of the Design-Build Done Right™ principles vital to successful project delivery. By completing these requirements, which touch on all aspects of design-build, candidates earn the right to display “DBIA” after their names, identifying them to design-build end-users and the industry at large as experienced design-build professionals.
Kerrie has a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering from the University of Kansas. In addition to her certification with DBIA, she is a member of the American Water Works Association, the National Society of Professional Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers.
