We are dedicated to creating responsive, memorable architecture. Exceptional design is the result of strong leadership and teamwork. Furthermore, DLZ’s design process includes the use of the latest design software and a focus on sustainable design principles.
Welcome to DLZ! We take a multidisciplinary, collaborative approach to professional services. This allows us to build and lead successful project teams dedicated to providing solutions that save money, improve operations, and solve problems.
Our vision is simple: Create successful partnerships with our clients that facilitate trust, commitment, and communication.
We keep communities moving. We design complex interchanges, restore historic bridges, and develop traffic solutions. In addition, our team creates trails, educates the public on roundabouts, and advances transit systems.
We have been assisting clients in solving their public works projects for nearly a century. As a leading design and consulting firm, DLZ is skilled in all water/wastewater services.
A leader in design and construction of public infrastructure, our construction services division provides construction management, construction observation, scheduling, claims analysis, document control, risk analysis, value engineering, field quality control, and laboratory testing for the construction and rehabilitation of transportation and utility projects.
