Setting Our Sites for Future Livability.

Collaborative, innovative and responsive, our civil engineering team provides full-service engineering design. From planning and entitlements through construction, we bring valuable and creative expertise in a number of fields including storm water management and low impact development. We collaborate directly with the owner, architect and local jurisdictions to navigate often-complicated permitting processes. Our responsiveness and communication bring value to any project as we work together to create successful results for our clients.


Site Development and Entitlements


Project success begins with a thorough site development plan that may include coordination of feasibility studies to due diligence and entitlement assistance. DCI provides expertise in all phases of site development; from conceptual design through construction. We are advocates for our clients and offer the experience and expertise to produce economical designs – without compromising quality.



Traffic planning and project needs vary from client to client and from one jurisdiction to another. DCI provides safe and efficient roadway, pedestrian, and parking designs to meet the specific project needs. Through our involvement, we are able to provide cost effective approaches to a broad variety of traffic engineering needs such as roundabout design, street circulation and parking plans, traffic studies, and street lighting design.



We pride ourselves in helping private and municipal clients with creative, new infrastructure and revitalizing existing infrastructure such as sanitary water and sewer systems. Sustainable design is important for the development and growth of communities. Our team works directly with utility purveyors to meet applicable local guidelines to ensure a seamless permitting process. Detailed analysis and modeling is critical to providing cost effective solutions and maximize benefit to the project.



Stormwater management has become more complicated with increasingly more stringent guidelines to protect our environment. Our in-house stormwater experts create innovative stormwater solutions to maximize value to the clients while providing green and sustainable designs according to the standards and specifications of local, state, and federal agencies. We provide project-specific approaches to ensure stormwater treatment, detention and infiltration are properly modeled and that the designs are economical and maintainable.

Low Impact Development


DCI is committed to helping our clients arrive at sustainable design solutions. Low Impact Development (LID) requires close project involvement and coordination with the owner, design team and local jurisdictions to provide “green” urban based solutions on projects. Many of our staff are LEED® Accredited Professionals who specialize in pervious pavement design, green roof design, and biofiltration of stormwater runoff.

Master Planning


Our team possesses extensive experience in all types of master planning for commercial, residential, medical, education, retail, governmental, and industrial projects. This experience allows us to provide sound engineering planning solutions to benefit clients with a clear solution for future project growth.

DCI is the type of firm where you pay a dollar to save ten. I’ll take that offer all day, every day."
