Fostering long-term relationships with clients is one of DBI’s five core values, so we always appreciate it when our clients recognize our efforts to establish such collaborative partnerships.  DBI’s Senior Manager Marcy Trepke, IIDA, LEED AP ID+C, recently received the following words of thanks from the Facilities and Maintenance Manager at iDirect, a company based in Herndon, Virginia that designs satellite-based IP communications technology:

I just wanted to say “thanks” for all that you do for iDirect and for me.  You are always looking out for us and giving me lots of great ideas (some I like; some I don’t!), but it gets both Amy and me thinking about what could be.  In the end, all of our projects are so well done, and it’s all a result of your efforts and hard work.  Thank you!

Since 2005, DBI has partnered with iDirect to design several expansions to its original 25,000-SF headquarters at Presidents Park in Herndon, Virginia.  In addition to more offices and workstations for its growing workforce, iDirect’s needs over the years have included a conferencing center; a product demonstration lab; 8,120 SF of dedicated technical space for software and hardware engineering labs; a roof-top satellite farm; a 24-hour customer service space; and a secure future SCIF suite.  The latest scope of work is a relocation of iDirect’s headquarters to the third floor of Presidents Park I (52,000 SF).  DBI is currently at work on design development.
