Multi-Family Residential

"Home" is More Than Just a House.

With the expansion of urban centers, multi-family residential projects aren’t just creating a space to live – they’re creating a place to thrive.

Our work

DCI residential projects can be found throughout the U.S., encompassing various construction materials, delivery methods and programming features. From city concrete high-rises and multi-block podiums to Small Town U.S.A. townhomes and apartments. A shared structure provides opportunities for communal areas, mixed-use amenities, spacious interiors and modern layouts – all while keeping in mind the sacredness of personal space.

Affordable Housing

As the need for affordable living continues to grow, so does the importance for finding creative building solutions to help offset costs for our non-profit partners.

DCI has had the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with integrated supportive housing and community plan projects across the country. We are familiar with designing for built environments associated with ADA compliance, the Fair Housing Act, and the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS).

Our projects range from low-income assisted living facilities to mixed-use apartments with in-house community services.
