Many of DTB Architects’ projects are constructed on “live” sites and we are frequently required to produce designs that accommodate occupied buildings, stage works, compressed programs, complex planning and maintenance of live services.

The practice’s primary objective with each and every project is to serve our Clients well, and to produce quality buildings that function well and meet as many of our Clients’ requirements and aspirations as the project constraints will allow.

The success of the business over this time has been built on the core principles of delivering intelligent design, sound technology and good building practice at competitive cost.  

The value of this approach to our work is authenticated by the vast majority of new commissions evolving from word of mouth referral or repeat work from established clients.
