DHS Management Philosophy – “To always be proactive and not reactive”
This philosophy is enshrined in our beliefs, practices and solutions we offer our clients. We see the industry practitioners today expecting and hoping that nothing will go wrong on their projects, and then when they do go wrong, they find themselves in a constant mode of reacting to events and actions. We, on the other hand, recognizing this systemic flaw, have developed the bold approach of “Always expect the worst but plan extensively in advance for the best outcome.” To achieve this we have developed practices that are based on early and proactive measures that anticipate all possible scenarios and solutions to each project variable. These measures include, but are not limited to, workshops for risk evaluation and mitigation, cost and value engineering, “what if” delays and time impacts and aggressive management approaches during construction enhanced by thorough contemporaneous project documentation. We believe that the project is our client and that when the project is successful, all stakeholders are successful.
Our people are our biggest asset
Our employees are not just numbers on a corporate balance sheet. We hire, mentor and invest in our people in order to help them achieve their highest potential in serving our clients. Our clients have always told us; “We don’t care how big your company is, we care about the people you provide to serve us.”
