Tambi created DBe after years of working with architects, designers, engineers, development firms, builders and luxury retail companies. “We realized that the design and construction industries lacked a link between both disciplines as well as an understanding of the critical interdependence between each that is essentially non-existent on most project sites. Our company brings with it a certain intuition allowing it to uphold the architects and interior designers concepts & construction intent while working thru the complexities of various systems that continuously threaten the project altogether…”

Our experience in several sectors of the industry as noted In the about section above has allowed this patience to evolve just as our approach to construction has evolved giving us a sixth sense of what the typical pitfalls will be on a given project.
