Design + Architecture Consultants

DAC provides professional services in both the Planning and Construction Administration phases of large scale projects.

Our experience and resources, combined with our hands on approach and our personal service distinguishes our team. We provide project design and development management services. Working closely with our clients we help to guide the process from the initial concept phase, move it through design development, construction and finally project turnover. We emphasize the importance of maintaining continuity throughout the project delivery process by providing the essential communication necessary with investors, owners, contractors and consultants. As part of the development team, DAC strives to make sure the efforts are fully coordinated to ensure the successful delivery of a project on time and on budget.
