The success of every architectural project comes down to relationships:

DKC strives to meet our clients’ needs while upholding the highest standard of quality within our work. In our designs, we use contemporary solutions to incorporate the needs of the client while creating calm, convenient and tasteful living and / or work settings. Decisions for selecting finishes and aesthetics are made with the utmost care while fulfilling our clients’ expectations; the function of the space, the location of the project, and balancing architectural elements with human comfort.
Considerations to produce the highest quality of work include, but are not limited to:
- Using the latest technology
- Incorporating innovative and progressive design solutions, while using cost- conscientious strategies
- Reducing and simplifying processes, procedures and timelines.
We THRIVE on challenges. In this industry, there are often misconceptions that budgets, schedules, public processes, and other components stifle creativity. We believe just the opposite. True architectural invention resides in the creative response to every day elements.
We discovered that greater engagement with a project’s specific challenges results in greater design integrity; whether it is budgetary, structural, cultural or contextual. Conquering these challenges enhances our abilities, demonstrates our confidence in overcoming new challenges, and adds to DKC’s accomplishments.
DKC specializes in and is well-known for its Design-Build metal buildings. We have found that this construction method decreases costs, construction time and stress for the client from inception to completion. This method also allows us the design flexibility to ensure we meet the specific needs of our clients’ project.
When compared to conventional building materials, these structures require fewer repairs, which increase the longevity of the buildings. Major sustainability advantages are factored by energy consumption, longevity, maintenance and recyclable materials. Through ingenuity and innovation, metal structures have become more appealing and aesthetically enhancing, resulting in being considered and utilized for more building types, including residential and ecclesiastical, than the typical commercial use.
