Create office buildings with purified air. Design airport terminals with minimized noise and emissions. Ensure hospitals prioritize optimal patient comfort. Establish laboratories as the safest environments for technicians. Develop central utility plants with dual-purpose cooling and heating systems to save energy and costs. This represents a superior approach to construction.
Specializing in Diverse Markets and Systems
For more than three decades, DSI has been at the forefront of establishing health-conscious and energy-efficient environments within the Commercial & Specialty markets, encompassing:
- Airport terminals
- Corporate offices/campuses
- University/college campuses
- Correctional facilities
- Solar manufacturing
Facing challenges such as elevated occupant densities, close proximity to food services, and environmental noise pollution, our solutions integrate energy-efficient and discreet underfloor air delivery, along with displacement air concepts that significantly enhance the overall environment. Our strategies encompass CO2 monitoring, pressurization control, and ensuring the consistent delivery of crucial outside air to establish healthy environments in every building we construct.
For over three decades, DSI has pioneered the development of forward-looking and efficient environments tailored to the higher education sector. Our projects span university and college academic buildings, professional schools (such as veterinary and medical), libraries, laboratories, and operational facilities.
DSI’s comprehensive services cover HVAC, mechanical systems, sheet metal, plumbing, and equipment start-up, often executed seamlessly without causing disruptions to ongoing classes. Several of these projects have earned a notable LEED-Gold rating.
Overseeing successful healthcare projects is a intricate endeavor that demands experienced managers and teams equipped with a thorough understanding of specialized design and construction principles. DSI provides extensive resources and industry expertise to address a diverse array of healthcare requirements.
Our track record boasts the completion of over $1 billion in healthcare projects, spanning from the construction of new medical centers and research facilities to comprehensive building renovations. These encompass ambulatory and specialty care centers adhering to clean room and BSL standards, as well as blood and chemistry labs and medical office buildings. Our specialization lies in:
- Medical gas systems
- Surgical environments
- Imaging facilities
- Critical system infrastructure
Our systems are installed by highly skilled technical staff and meticulously commissioned to ensure seamless operation. We take pride in our contributions to the healthcare industry, knowing that the projects we’ve completed will serve patients and their families for years to come.
DSI has been involved in acclaimed hospitality projects, providing tailor-made preconstruction and construction services to our clients. Whether it’s a new flagship hotel, casino, or water park, we are committed to delivering the optimal value for your project, coupled with exceptional quality.
The infrastructure of laboratories heavily relies on extensive mechanical HVAC and plumbing systems, encompassing fume hoods, toxic and hazardous chemicals, cleanrooms, waste neutralization, lab gases, and ultrapure water. The seamless integration of these systems is contingent upon thorough coordination within the BIM model. Leveraging significant 3D design capabilities, we can develop a fully coordinated facility.
Safety considerations are paramount, particularly concerning toxic and flammable chemicals. Our commitment to high-quality installations is underpinned by a deep understanding that the safety of lab technicians is of utmost importance.
Effective ventilation is achieved through large energy-consuming outside and exhaust air systems. We place emphasis on design solutions that involve energy reclamation to mitigate this consumption. Additionally, ventilation rates can be optimized through the monitoring of airborne contaminants. Collaborating with contaminant monitoring systems that interface with HVAC controls can further contribute to reducing energy consumption.
Biopharmaceutical manufacturing facilities demand a high level of complexity and precision. Our team brings extensive expertise to the fabrication and installation of hygienic piping systems and process equipment specifically designed for FDA-regulated facilities. Furthermore, we ensure accurate QA/QC documentation for project turnover packages, guaranteeing full compliance with your IQ and OQ protocols.
In order to address the stringent standards of biopharmaceutical manufacturing, we adopt a collaborative team approach. This involves engaging professionals from each discipline at every stage of the project. Through this approach, we effectively manage the entire project scope, from preconstruction planning and design to restoration and turnover.
