DTC’s participation in the creation of skillful housing design begins with the development of sound baseline survey and environmental data.

Our field specialists gather data and test information to assure accurate documentation for subsequent assessment and permitting tasks. The clear definition of project goals and deliverables is also critical.

Our mechanical, electrical, structural and civil engineering professionals work closely with architects and developers to define the needs of the proposed users as they relate to residential unit size, circulation, recreation, food service and emergency support systems. These parameters need to be balanced with owners’ occupancy schedules, program budgets, maintenance and operational costs to assure initial and long term project viability. DTC participates extensively in the design process as well as in the exploration of value engineering alternatives by our in-house construction engineers and estimators.

Special housing environments have also been crafted by DTC for the military, students, the elderly, affordable as well as mentally and physically handicapped residents. Support facilities include community rooms and lounge areas, study rooms, recreation areas and pools, food service and full cafeterias, as well as support signage, special lighting and communications. New or renovated residential living communities have been designed for developers, municipal and state agencies, not-for-profit community action agencies and divisions of the military.

DTC brings a series of disciplines that add value to the overall project, as well as the local community and the residents who choose to live in a well-planned, designed environment. Beyond the site services found on typical development teams, we offer the added strength of land planning, survey, civil, building systems and construction engineering groups as a comprehensive teamed approach.
