Modern Steek Construction Magazine featured this story "Balanced Design" about DCI's Data 1 project in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. Read more about this great project here.
Last week, DCI Engineers hosted a 30th anniversary celebration called “DCI Connect” with about 500 clients and guests from the A/E/C industries at the Embassy Suites in Seattle. Festivities took place in the King Street Ballroom & Perch, where attendees got a recap of how the founders of the firm prevailed during the early years of uncertain business momentum.
Today, the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce published a special feature on the recently completed Spokane Convention Center Expansion. Here’s DCI Engineers’ contribution to the package:

Crafting a fine wine takes careful attention to detail – a little errant bacteria or slight fluctuation in temperature can mean the difference between the finest vintage and undrinkable swill. And as any vintner will tell you, controlling those variables starts with the environment in which the wine is made.

No matter what level of experience you have, most A/E/C firms or companies across the country expect their staff to persistently network, represent the firm, stand out to potential clients, and be remembered when those clients consider your firm for their project. Not all lines of work emphasize this strategy, but in the A/E/C industries the culture of engagement, business networking, and collaboration are paramount in running a competitive firm.
The Next Generation of Engineers - The Value of STEM Education to the AEC Industry
In celebration of Engineering Week 2014, DCI Engineers had the pleasure of being a part of the Greater Spokane Incorporated’s, Business AfterSchool program. This program introduces area students to high-demand industries and demonstrates to them what skills and educational paths will be required. We had the opportunity to give the students a tour of one of our project sites, the Convention Center Hotel located in Spokane, Washington and illustrate to them the scope of planning and cooperation that goes into building a 716-key hotel.
An engineer’s perspective is an invaluable tool when it comes to designing a building that is not only useful, but aesthetically pleasing and safe. We thought it would be fun to get a group of our engineers to look at a picture of Drai’s Nightclub at the W Hotel in LA to see what they pick up on as important elements.
It has been a very busy year for DCI Engineers. With new projects, new hires, and even a new office, the expansion of our operations in the past year is a testament to the great work that our employees do and the wonderful industry that surrounds us.
When we were approached for the new Courtyard by Marriott project at the Irvine Spectrum, the team wasn’t seeking just another hotel in their vast international list of properties. They imagined a structure that would represent the Southern California debut of Marriott’s latest Gen Next design. This Gen Next concept is Marriott’s response to next generation travelers seeking choices and flexibility. Marriott’s answer provides great room lobby experiences with style, comfort, convenience, and entertainment.
