Why Use DKE?
External load calculations and models are provided in a structural report that is simple and easy for the building official to review.
Our expert engineering drafters produce technical plans and drawings that are consistent in look and feel and easy for your contractor to read. We also have a large library of details that will work for most projects.
Every project goes through our same step-by-step time-tested process. Using automated tools, we keep every drawing, calculation and asset neatly organized so we can send and retrieve each deliverable with ease.
After reviewing project requirements and defining scope, we set timeline and budget expectations and work hard to achieve your goals without sacrificing your design vision.
Your project will be worked on by a small, talented team utilizing streamlined project management. Less overhead, red tape and time wasting means we can maintain lower prices than our competitors.
You work directly with our designers and engineers throughout the project. No bureaucracy or red tape here! We don’t make you work with a middle man or account manager. If you have questions, let us know and we provide quick, thorough advice.
DKE responds quickly and their in-house staff is capable of processing the quick turn-arounds needed in all facets of the design process, from concept to engineering. We have tremendous appreciation and respect the entire DKE team!
