Precise, accurate and dependable cost estimating and construction consulting

With more than 30 years of experience in construction consulting services, DMS specializes in cost estimating, value engineering, cost management, scheduling and expert witness/construction claims.

We are well regarded for the quality of our work, our collaborative approach and our ability to work well within the employers’ professional team.

From our base in Washington DC, our portfolio of projects includes federal and local government, health care, laboratories, medical facilities, higher education, K-12 education, mix use facilities, museums, hotels, airports, library facilities, parks and recreation, road, rail and other infrastructure projects; social services projects such as hospitals, campuses; pharmaceutical facilities and power generation, as well as distribution schemes.

Whilst our work is principally in the United States, it increasingly includes schemes in Canada, the Caribbean and South America. Despite our growth over the years, we have remained dedicated to precision – a cornerstone of our business that inspires confidence in our clients.

As a result, cost estimates for competitive situations have remained at a constant at 0-5% high since 1988 and our close contact and analysis of market conditions allows us to accurately forecast the market.

We also pride ourselves on our in-depth analyses designed to inform clients of potential cost savings ideas, value engineering issues, scheduling and work packaging cost benefits and coordination conflicts.

In 2017, our growing business joined forces with the Tungsten Capital Group, an international company with expertise in Management Consultancy, in construction and engineering claims, commercial management, arbitration and litigation support.
