What We Do?

Our main goal and objective for our clients is to design energy-efficient systems for buildings. We offer an integrated approach to deliver bespoke solutions through all stages of development, from concept design to project handover and beyond.

We aim to provide comprehensive services throughout the life of a project, working as a team member, acting as program manager, or leading an entire building project. We assist commercial developers in creating sustainable buildings that are low-maintenance and low-energy demand.

We solve problems through engineering to create elegant, practical solutions. We always aim to reduce waste, particularly of energy. We prefer natural systems and we strive to seamlessly integrate engineering efficiency into every detail of a building.

Our practice is driven by a deep and practical understanding of the engineering detail that delivers buildings that are comfortable to use, efficient and simple to maintain, and are tailored to the client's requirements and the architect's creative intent.

This approach calls for a rare combination of engineering and design skills. Our people come from a range of science and engineering backgrounds, are trained to understand buildings and all the services they require, and work collaboratively with other building specialists in general and architects in particular.

Green Design

Global emphasis on the design of energy efficient and sustainable buildings has also put a new emphasis on building services for clients. The building design engineer has a critical role to play in delivering buildings compliant with the latest energy regulations, sustainable in design and operation, and cost-effective.

Our role is to partner with our clients, providing the innovation and expertise to ensure better performing and longer lasting buildings. DAI is committed to having a positive impact on the quality of life in the communities we serve around the world through the design, construction management, and operation and maintenance of infrastructure.

Our planners, designers and construction managers are devotedly seeking new ways to develop infrastructure that is not only safe and reliable, but also conserves resources, protects and enriches the natural environment, and promotes social and economic vitality.

Energy Consulting

We use our in-depth knowledge of buildings to identify and implement high-performance energy efficiency solutions.
We look for opportunities to optimize building performance by:

  • reducing energy use
  • maximizing occupant comfort
  • optimizing system longevity

  • Our services include:

  • building performance simulation and benchmarking
  • existing building commissioning and energy assessments
  • community energy consulting and planning

  • Project Management

    DAI has a Program management (PM) service, which is a partnership with owners that raises effective, cost-efficient and innovative project delivery. Acting as an extension of client staff, the program manager upholds the client's interests in all areas of project implementation from planning and design, through procurement and construction, and into operations and maintenance.

    DAI also offers construction management (CM) services geared to a project's size and complexity, and backed by a corporate commitment to total quality management. On complex assignments entailing numerous projects and multiple contractors, our involvement extends from overseeing the planning and design phases to managing bidding and procurement and full CM services.
