Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) has joined forces with DMS Construction Consulting Services.   By joining together, we can offer an expanded range of services and broader sector expertise to our clients the greater D.C. area, including Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

DMS will operate as RLB | DMS, effective September 1, 2019.

Julian Anderson, FRICS FAACE, President of RLB North America, said, “In Washington, DMS has been a trusted source for superior cost estimating to a wide variety of sectors for more than 30 years. By combining their deep knowledge of the local market with our expansive national and global resources in project management, cost and advisory services, RLB|DMS will be the consultant of choice in the always-dynamic metro DC area.”

 Keeping a pulse on the D.C. market

In its most recent Crane Index and quarterly cost report—RLB’s proprietary publications that are a highly regarded AEC industry barometer—mixed-use, office, and residential projects are cited as the sectors driving construction activity in Washington. As a key bellwether of its positive forecast for the market, RLB has identified Amazon’s Crystal City Headquarters as introducing a new scale and level of complexity to the local development scene.
