We pride ourselves on high customer care & personal relationships, and try to let the work speak for itself. Usually, a sense of highly crafted work is the result of a smaller scale materials & furniture background.

As an architecturally licensed and fully insured company, DII adheres to the highest level of quality standards while working within each project’s budget. We believe that anything is possible and welcome and foster any/all custom challenges. Whenever possible, we also try to incorporate green materials & infuse environmentally conscious design concepts. DII believes that after rigorous due diligence via our design & build phases, the final product will be inventive, highly functional, & will hopefully inspire.
