A consulting engineering firm’s primary responsibility is to produce accurate Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection drawings in addition to meet deadlines. At DVO, we believe that an equal responsibility of the consulting engineer is the development of long-term relationships with our clients. Our job as engineers and your job as architects/owners/contractors becomes easier and more fulfilling when we are familiar with each other.
