The DCI Designers team is comprised of over 30 people located in the United States and India. The DCI Designers office is in the city of Chennai, the capital of India’s southernmost state, Tamil Nadu. The city has centuries of history hidden in it, some of which can be found in the local architecture, like the Kapaleeshwarar Temple and Parthasarathy Temple, both dating to the 7th and 8th centuries CE. They bear design details from the Pallavas, Cholas and Vijayanagara empires that ruled India.


The DCI Designers team is made up of experienced, professional designers that are well versed in Higher LOD (Levels of Development). The team is led by Sumandeep Singh, Associate Principal in DCI’s San Francisco Office, who has spearheaded the founding and management of DCI Designers. All designers are well versed in designing with steel, timber, concrete and more. The team is centrally located in India with members in the United States, all of whom will coordinate for seamless, round the clock project development.

The best part of being a BIM manager is watching my team think outside of the box. Every day is different, a different project, a different challenge, and different outcomes for a solution.”
