Transforming Plans into Reality

DPI offers a full suite of services to meet your project's needs

Pre-construction
Consulting

We believe that diligent pre-construction planning is critical to achieving an effective, seamless and successful project outcome. As such, we place an emphasis on our Pre-construction practice which incorporates:

  • Budget Management
  • Project Scheduling
  • Value Engineering
  • Constructability Analysis
  • Life-Cycle Cost Analysis

Construction
Management

Our goal has always been to play a pivotal role in delivering the client’s grand project vision and to work in tandem with our design partners to make that happen. We do this by identifying the potential construction challenges, developing corresponding mitigation strategies and then ensuring all issues are addressed in a direct and transparent way. We do this by diligent oversight of project scheduling, budget management and the implementation of strict safety measures.

Challenges will vary with every project, but our approach is always the same: Define, Plan, Implement and always remain nimble in how we course-correct unexpected project issues.

General
Contracting

At DPI we understand a client’s ongoing need for cost certainty. Although the General Contracting approach does not allow for contractor involvement at the design stage, we remain committed to ensuring our client’s best interests are protected. DPI’s commitment to safety, accountability and professional project leadership is essential to project success and we are steadfast in ensuring all our projects receive the attention they deserve.

Lease
Budgeting

As business owners ourselves, we recognize the importance of having accurate and pertinent project data readily available to help shape critical business decisions. To that end, DPI provides our clients with a comprehensive budget analysis based on the designer/architect schematic drawings and/or square foot allowances, and/or multiple location cost comparisons.

Green Building &
LEED® Consulting

We believe that sustainable construction plays a pivotal role in reaching our larger environmental goals while being a responsible community member. And so DPI incorporates LEED principles into every construction project we undertake. We are committed to the LEED Commercial Interiors and New Construction programs and have incorporated it throughout our firm. We invest heavily in training programs to further develop our staff and educate our clients on the merits of sustainable design and construction.
