OUR SERVICES Modern buildings rely on multifaceted systems to provide healthy, comfortable, durable, and user-friendly environments. From design through construction and operation, our engineers continually seek inventive and comprehensive solutions to achieve our goals of sustainability and longevity for each building. Our engineers and designers incorporate all aspects of building ownership including utilization, operation, maintenance, and future expansion into the design process to achieve safe, functional, and efficient environments. This ensures increased productivity and reliability in the building and systems operations.

K-12 EDUCATION At DBR, we believe all children deserve to have access to high quality educational facilities with good indoor air quality, ample lighting, and comfortable learning spaces where they can thrive. We strive to achieve the greatest energy efficiency possible while delivering systems that meet the district’s standards for maintenance and operation so their operating budget can go toward education and less towards utilities.
Since the early 1980’s DBR has been working with public school districts in the Houston area. Today, our primary focus is educational facilities and we understand the many challenges that face public school districts including the importance for controlling project budgets and delivering projects on schedule. DBR has the experience to deliver exceptional MEP engineering solutions and we continually strive to improve the systems that we specify to support.

“The services of a responsive, competent, and professional MEP engineer can drastically affect a project. When unforeseen circumstances call for immediate design requirements, it is important to know that a reliable engineer will properly address your concerns.

We highly recommend DBR for mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering.” Christopher Fields Managing Director, Program Mgmt. CBRE Heery, Inc.
