DBD was founded as a company by Gabriel Amzucu (Left) and Shivin Bhatia (Right). Gabriel and Shivin have a combined experience of over 8 years in Building Design, Drafting, Project Management, Build Management and Contract Administration experience. This collaboration of their skills, talents, experiences and beliefs has been extremely beneficial to the organic growth of the company.
Gabriel and Shivin both have a very strong commitment to Energy Efficient Building Design and Solar Passive Design. They believe in designing buildings which function exceptionally well through Summer, Winter, Autumn, Spring and more importantly contribute to the environment by feeding energy & resources back to the grid. Whilst some projects may vary in size, scale and geographic conditions, this thorough understanding of architectural building science has been the key driver in all their projects.
Our directors are extremely committed to deliver value-enhancing building designs, drafting services, build management and other services along the way from inception to completion, with the underlying aim to provide a professional level of service and support. They strive to design bespoke design solutions which are specific and tailored to your site requirements, budget.
As time goes on we are excited to see the impact our company makes to the built environment.
