Listening, Understanding and Developing our Clients' Vision

Listening, Understanding and Developing our Clients' Vision

We maintain a focus on not only delivering the project on time, with exceptional quality and within cost, but also in ensuring long term value is designed into facilities to ensure that they are easy and safe to operate, sustainable, minimise energy use and are cost effective to maintain.

We work collaboratively to generate the right design solution that incorporates Life Cycle Costing and Value Engineering. We adopt a design policy based upon the development and interrogation of design alternatives.

We go all out to make this an enjoyable process and build relationships which often results in us returning to work for the same clients on future projects.

Thoughtful designs to make a difference

We love using our creativity, practical knowledge and experience to solve problems and deliver projects which are attractive, inspirational, cost effective and environmentally sustainable


Caring and Socially Responsible

Caring and Socially Responsible

Environmental, Social and Governance is an important focus of our business. We are aware of our standing within the communities in which we operate and are committed to operating in an ethical and socially responsible manner.

We are committed to making DB3’s and our client’s environment more inclusive and believe a diverse and inclusive company, representative of the societies our projects create, involve and influence, is pivotal to meeting the challenges of the future faced by us and our staff.
