Our goal is to design superior work tailored to meet the specific needs and budget considerations of each individual project. All project team members are committed to complete client satisfaction and will work closely with the client to assure coordination and attention to detail through all phases of the project.

We have an extensive list of clients and extensive experience in the industry with more than 50 clients in the greater Chicagoland area, many of whom we have had relationships with for more than 25 years. This experience comes from our knowledge of codes and standards, electrical power distribution, stand-by emergency generators, design ingenuity, latest technological advances along with designing with the highest regard to human safety. This, along with our commitment to client satisfaction has allowed us to continue to grow our client base and remain the leader in electrical systems design.

DEI has also been nationally recognized for its work in the industry, most recently by R&D Magazine with the 2010 Lab of the Year Award and the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) as a 2008 Vista Award recipient in the category of Hospital Renovation. We were also the electrical design engineers for Advocate Lutheran General Hospital’s Bed Replacement Tower, which was awarded LEED gold certification, making it the first Hospital in the Midwest to receive such a prestigious distinction.

As uncertain as the future may be, DEI’s mission remains the same – “To invest in our people and new technology in order to remain a distinguished design team devoted to public safety, professionalism, growth, long term client relationships, and quality services.”
