Q&A with Dustin:


Q: As an engineer how do you serve as an advocate for your clients and guide them to a successful project?

A: I am passionate about our designs and strive to deliver well-coordinated, quality projects. When new challenges arise on projects, I leverage the depth of knowledge at our firm to help our clients get solutions quickly. I take pride in supporting the project team to accomplish our goals and make certain our clients are satisfied beyond project completion.

Q: What do you love most about being an engineer?

A: I wake up every morning knowing that my ingenuity will contribute towards a design that will be constructed and serve a purpose for an individual or company. Every project is different, and I enjoy applying my creativity and problem-solving skills to deliver energy-efficient buildings. My favorite types of projects are new schools that will house our younger generation, giving them a place to grow, learn, and play. I love being an engineer because I can design something which will help influence our future through the generations to come.

Q: What do you see as key opportunities for the Dallas office in the next 5 years?

A: Dallas is a big city and continues to grow and expand every year. DBR has planted its roots here a few years ago and has been involved in many types of projects while growing relationships with multiple individuals and companies. We will continue to build relationships, branch out in different markets, and create a well-known name for DBR in this Dallas community, as we have in many other communities throughout Texas.
