+ THE DBR VALUE ADDED DIFFERENCE “DBR has been a valuable team member to Interprise on several projects. They are involved at an early stage and assist our team in identifying potential issues, areas to research, and alternative MEP solutions that bring great value to our Clients. Their project managers coordinate all of the engineering team which is unusual to find and truly aids in overall success.” – Elizabeth Hull, RID, Project Manager | Interprise Design DBR is a full service firm. That’s right! We provide Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, as well as Low Voltage, Sustainability and Commissioning. This means a seamless design for your project and cost savings back in your pocket. DBR can even provide Commissioning of lighting controls and HVAC systems to meet the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). Partner involvement on a project level. This gives you peace of mind that our leaders are watching over your project with your best interest in mind. Initial field verification is included in our scope of work. We confirm that existing plans match the actual field conditions. Unfortunately there are many projects that are not built exactly how the engineer had intended, and it is important to perform field verifications to avoid additional project construction costs. We provide on site construction administration. We will review wall cover ups, ceiling cover ups, and final observations for many projects to verify that the installation and materials meet the intent of the project’s plans and specifications. Quality is our middle name. Our dedicated in-house QA/QC team that will be involved throughout the entire process working with the project team to make sure that all disciplines are coordinated for constructability. Small firm responsiveness with large firm resources. With a staff of over 150 we can handle any size project, but our team organization will guarantee you will get the personal service you deserve.


THIS AIN’T OUR FIRST RODEO, Y’ALL. Interior projects are a class of engineering design all their own, and they offer challenges that we love to take on. Please take a look at our partial interior experience:

ALIVE + WELL MATT FAJKUS ARCHITECTURE

At Alive + Well in Bee Cave, Texas, DBR worked alongside Matt Fajkus Architecture to bring this new holistic health and wellness center to life by providing Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing design services for the 7,429 sf space. Alive + Well integrates functional medicine with holistic therapies and needed the design team to carefully take the needs of both types of services into consideration throughout the design process. The facility includes a wellness spa for acupuncture and massage services, as well as spaces for holistic therapies such as infrared saunas, IV vitamin therapy, and hot yoga studios. To serve the functional medicine services, the space also incorporates doctors’ offices, labs, and a compounding pharmacy. Due to the various environmental needs of the individual spaces, a VRF mechanical system was implemented and LED lighting was incorporated throughout the facility.

RESEARCH FOREST LAKESIDE BUILDING 5 – REPSOL ZIEGLER COOPER ARCHITECTS

Repsol, an international oil and gas exploration and production company, relocated their North American Headquarters to the 8-story, Building 5 on the Research Forest Lakeside campus in The Woodlands, Texas. DBR worked with Warmack Investments and Ziegler Cooper Architects to provide Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing design services for the 192,071 sf office space build-out. In addition to office space, the building also included a conference center, several large multi-function rooms, a 3D Visualization Center, a café, and indoor and outdoor dining spaces. Natural lighting, optimized HVAC and lighting control energy performance, and water use reduction were some of the sustainable design features that allowed the building to achieve LEED Gold for Commercial Interiors.

INNOSPEC INVENTURE DESIGN

The 22,000 sf interior finish-out for Innospec, a global specialty chemical company, involved demolishing an existing warehouse facility to reconstruct a new office space and innovation lab center in The Woodlands, Texas. The facility is focused on developing innovative new technologies and applications in support of Innospec’s customers in the oil and gas industry. The lab space includes an analytical lab area, drilling lab, and a high-pressure lab, each with their own developed ventilation. The office area is served by existing rooftop units and ductwork modifications and new air devices were provided throughout the space with energy efficient LED lighting. A separate structure was built and elevated above the existing roof to support the 100% outside air handling unit and the laboratory exhaust fan. The laboratory exhaust incorporated a run-around coil loop to recover energy from the exhaust air to the outside air. Phoenix venturi valves were provided to maintain laboratory air change rates and save energy with VAV laboratory exhaust and supply.
