FIRM PROFILE

DBI ARCHITECTS, INC. / PG 3


WHO WE ARE It is the possibilities that inspire us: To explore original design solutions for every client. To create meaningful experiences of place for you. To transform disparate elements into beautiful forms. At DBI, we are inspired by the spark—that vivid and powerful moment when a client’s needs and a designer’s vision coalesce into one cohesive design strategy. Our designers’ enthusiasm and expertise ensure that this strategy is implemented in the best possible way, developing client spaces of unparalleled functionality and sophistication. Since its inception in 1973, DBI has provided full-service architecture and interior design services to clients who share our belief that beautiful environments foster meaningful human interaction and successful business outcomes. We have not only witnessed, but have been pioneers of, the evolution of design. As a result, we have extensive and authentic knowledge of, and experience with, designing state-of-the-art building interiors. Our work embraces forwardthinking, contemporary design, so that our clients’ spaces exemplify the most cutting-edge, dynamic, and creative approaches. Our clients include the commercial real estate community; federal government agencies; corporations and technology firms; the hospitality and restaurant industry; and local, national, and international organizations. With offices in Reston, Virginia and Washington, DC, DBI is ideally located to respond rapidly to project needs and to adhere to rigorous production schedules. Our mid-sized firm is able to meet the demands of large projects while being intimately involved in their design—we are large enough to deliver and small enough to care. DBI recognizes that the design of our built environment has a lasting effect on the health of our natural environment. As a member of the US Green Building Council, DBI ensures that at least 30% of its designers are LEED® accredited and, whenever possible, specifies materials, furniture, and other products that are sustainable and energy efficient.

To reduce and monitor the environmental footprint of our projects, we maintain a carefully planned and integrated technological design platform that harnesses state-of-theart architectural design software. In addition to conveying conceptual designs quickly and in great detail, we are able to perform building energy and performance analyses to determine which architectural designs have the least environmental impact. Our technological platform also enables us to create highly coordinated sets of construction documents that link building component information to external databases for post-occupancy space and asset management.

SERVICES With more than 40 years of industry experience, DBI offers design services that provide architectural and interior solutions for any space.

MASTER PLANNING

From the beginning of a project, DBI’s 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.

EXTENDED CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION

Established in the 1990s, our architectural division provides expertise in building design, including commercial office buildings, private schools, colleges and universities, and churches.

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.
