With nearly 50 years of industry experience, DBI offers design services that provide architectural and interior solutions for any space.
From the beginning of a project, our master planning services comprehensively evaluate the characteristics of a specific property and, then, illustrate the design concepts that work best for the site. Our experience and expertise provide a reliable guide through the range of land use, zoning, traffic, environmental, and demographic issues that often arise during complex projects.
Established in the 1990s, our architectural division provides expertise in building design, including government buildings, commercial office buildings, private schools, colleges and universities, and churches.
DBI offers a full range of architecture and design services to create interiors that are both elegant and functional. Our clients include the commercial real estate community; federal government agencies; corporate, association, and legal end-user organizations; technology firms; and local, national, and international organizations.
DBI offers specialized design services for military and intelligence agencies requiring advanced communications environments. For more than 20 years, our stealth team has provided innovative architectural, engineering, and design solutions for the government agencies that protect our Nation. Our portfolio demonstrates a high degree of versatility and expertise in command and control center design and includes network operations centers, business continuity and disaster recovery facilities, and security operations and warfighter command centers. DBI is proud to provide stealth design services to clients whose missions are often critical and complex.
From systems furniture and casegoods for office spaces to complex solutions for operations, command, and conference centers, DBI coordinates furniture requirements for all spaces. In addition to creating a furniture plan tailored to the specifications of any project, we offer guidance in manufacturer selections and workspace designs; handle procurement and installation processes; and manage all vendors on-site.
EXTENDED CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION
To ensure that a project is completed according to the price agreed upon during bidding, DBI provides extended part- or full-time representation at the construction site. We monitor the project’s progress and quality of work, as well as the contractor’s construction schedule; respond to requests for information; maintain project records; evaluate shop drawings, product data, and samples; review the contractor’s applications for payment; conduct inspections to determine substantial and final completion; and administer project close-out procedures.
MOVE MANAGEMENT/FACILITY MANAGEMENT
DBI provides consulting and on-site facility management services to corporate, institutional, and government clients. Whether moving a bookcase or coordinating an entire office relocation, we successfully implement move and facility management policies by partnering with our clients to understand their organization’s structure, business goals, and culture. Projects encompass both daily moves and complete reconfigurations due to growth, contraction, or mission changes, as well as special projects that support the client. Specific tasks have included “box” moves for thousands of people to different locations within the same building, or between different facilities, as well as consolidation or expansion of space between floors, or from building to building.
DBI offers a variety of branding and graphic design services to enhance the marketing presence of our clients’ project or organization through expertly designed visual media. From producing complex movies and computer-generated renderings to developing corporate branding and public relations packages, our designers view creative challenges as opportunities to develop meaningful and distinctive visual concepts.
