“I believe that for Preconstruction Services, DSI recognizes and values that you need to use the right tool to do the right job. This means relying on dedicated, in-house staff with the right training, experience and professional certifications – like Mechanical Engineers, Certified Plumbing Designers, Registered Professional Engineers and LEED-Accredited Professionals. This allows us to actively engage multiple and unique design issues early and up front, to understand and control design and cost issues and options before they hit paper, to avoid abortive design work and to expedite overall project design time.”
