Designed To Meet Your Objectives

Client needs, program objectives, sustainability standards, regulatory objectives and budget constraints: Meeting so many parameters can test the ability of even the most accomplished firms. It calls for the rigor and extensive experience that DASNY planners, architects, engineers and project managers have brought to the oversight of every project for more than seven decades. Our meticulous process includes: 

Oversight for cost savings. Our long experience as liaisons between design professionals and construction teams makes for a seamless process, saving you time and money. We monitor the design and construction documents for compliance with your goals and budget, life safety and code compliance, constructability, completeness of scope and other requirements. 

Professionals of distinction. Our in-house design staff includes registered architects, professional engineers, LEED-accredited professionals and others. Meanwhile, our list of term contract architects and engineers includes some of the most respected practitioners in New York State. We have the staff and expertise to get your job done. 

Regulatory expertise. Everywhere in New York State, construction requires compliance with local, state, and federal regulations. DASNY’s relationship with those agencies and understanding of the process can streamline approvals on even the most complex projects.

LEED Projects
More than 40 DASNY projects have earned the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) since 2008.
