The engineers of DHE are licensed professional engineers (PE) and certified healthcare facility design professionals (HFPD) and experienced in designing and renovating the most acute-care buildings. DHE understands the vast knowledge of regulatory requirements in a health care setting, while also maintaining energy efficient design.
