Since DCL was formed by Phil Simmonds and Frank Bates the practice has established a solid client base across the retail, commercial, industrial and residential sectors.
DCL prides itself on designing simple, sound, buildable structures that connect on a human scale with the building owners and users, by maximising site-specific modern methods of construction with cutting-edge innovation. Our goal is client satisfaction.
Our specialists oversee your construction project from start to finish. They provide a full range of services starting with feasibility studies and design management. They plan the construction work, manage the project and any contracts, supervise the work as it is carried out and then deal with any deficiencies at the end. Our expertise covers traditional building jobs as well as contemporary and innovative designs such as energy-efficient projects.
