Way In Building & Civil Construction

DCE has extensively contributed in the field. More than 30 town planning projects in and around Islamabad have been carried out for a number of satisfied clients.In the field of Architecture, DCE had been involved in the planning and design of local and overseas projects. Some of the prestigious projects include 13 storey’s National Testing Services Head Quarter, building in Islamabad. Mother and child hospital Balkh, Afghanistan and Hydroponic project in Riyadh Saudi Arabia.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the foundation of digital transformation in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry.

It’s based around models used for the planning, design, construction, and management of building and infrastructure projects. BIM software is used to model and optimize projects by planning, designing, building, and operating BIM models.

    • Revit is BIM software widely used by architects, engineers, and contractors to create a unified model that all disciplines and trades can use to complete their work.

Business Development broadly comprises three main functions – preparing business proposals, marketing and relationship management. Each firm – and indeed each market or service group or office – is likely to have a different emphasis on them. In addition to these business development activities, there is likely to be a number of specialist functions which may be best located centrally or outsourced to specialist agencies for efficiency purposes.

Since the inception of BDD, it has played a key role in the growth of company business within the country and abroad. It has made a valuable contribution to the projection and promotion of business acquisition. BDD is currently engaged in the following tasks:

  • Company profile (1984 -to date)
  • Business opportunities
  • Website management
  • Social media management
  • Project sheets and service sheets
  • Pipeline and opportunity management
  • Leaflets and pamphlets
  • Public relations including internal communications
  • Campaign development
  • New market entry and development
  • Policy and Process management

Contract management is the process of systematically and efficiently managing contract reaction, execution and analysis for maximizing operational and finantional performance and minimizing the risks in execution of the projects keeping effective control on expenditure and settlement of claims arising out of execution of projects. DCE has highly experienced contract management team for an effective role during pre and post award of construction controls.

With over three decades of exposure to state-of-the-art technology in planning and designing of power generation, transmission and distribution systems, DCE has developed an efficient team of mature and dynamic professionals, fully equipped to take on new and challenging assignments in this field. The expertise of our team in hydel power engineering encompasses concept development & feasibility studies, detailed design and engineering, procurement, inspection, testing, construction supervision / project management, start-up and commissioning of power generating plants.

The Electrical Engineering Division of DCE also provide services for all facets of implementation of various building projects, which interalia includes feasibility studies, planning, design, preparation of bidding documents, evaluation of bids for award of contracts, supervision of construction/installation, testing & commissioning of the projects, assessment of the contractor’s claims, settlement of disputes between the Contractors & Clients, and post construction services.
The division now provides services in the following specialties of Electrical Engineering:
• Power plants (hydel & thermal generation)
• Transmission lines (500kv, 220kv & 132kv)
• Distribution (66kv & 11kv)
• Substations (500kv, 220kv & 132kv)
• Contracts.
• Electrical design and lighting of domestic, commercial and industrial buildings.
• Solar system design.
• Solar Electrification.
• Fire and Life Safety (FLS)

Recent economic and financial volatility have challenged corporate organizations to provide their companies with more and better services while at the same time reducing the costs of the finance function. DCE was formed in 1982, and the Finance and Accounting Division was created in the same year. This Division is not just a service division but is directly involved in the project management activities of the Company. The finance and accounting division scrutinizes every rupee and radically revamp the operating model to transform the company and deliver significant, long-lasting cost savings. The services provided by the division are:
• Finance Strategy
• Organizational Effectiveness
• Working Capital Management
• Planning and Performance Management
• Compliance
• Internal and external audits.
• Corporate budgets.
• Corporate & Individual taxations.
• Book keeping & Accounts

Fire detection + prevention system are extremely important to ensure protection of occupants+ properly. Since enforcement of fire and life safe code by CDA in 200 a number fire and life systems have been designed and implemented and fire and life safety system for new chancery building of German Embassy designed to meet the local and German standards which are more rigid by laws.For a number of projects including Turkish Embassy, NTS Building, Anti Narcotics HQ building.

DCE has carried out a number of environment studies for Hydro Power Projects and other major projects to take care of social, economic, environmental and ecological impact in the surrounding areas.

For a sustainable growth of any country ensured availability of affordable power plays a significant role. With the rising cost of oil in the world market costly power produced by the thermal plants leads to increase in cost of consumer products and goods manufactured for exports. Hydro Power generation therefore, has assumed significance. DCE has carried of feasibility of Hydro power project with the capacity from few 400 watts to 500 MW. Some of the small and macro hydropower projects have been designed and completed in KPK + AJK.

With the continuation of urbanization of cities over the last few decades, concern of the civic agencies about proper planning and development of infrastructure services of up covering housing scheme has assumed importance specially about the environmental issues. DCE has planned and designed over two dozen projects covering roads, water supply and sewerage systems including waste water treatment plants and external underground power distribution system.

The Mechanical Division has emerged from a small Section to a full-fledged division since inception of DCE in 1982. The Mechanical Division provides services for all facets of implementation of various projects, which interalia includes feasibility studies, planning, design, preparation of bidding documents, evaluation of bids for award of contracts, supervision of construction/installation, testing & commissioning of the projects, assessment of the contractor’s claims, settlement of disputes between the Contractors & Clients, and post construction services.
DCE’s mechanical engineers provide simple and elegant solutions that enhance the long-term value of properties. Our experience encompasses passive and energy-efficient solutions that contribute to sustainable building design, and appraisal and retrofit for better performing services in existing buildings including ventilation, heating and cooling services. We integrate mechanical, electrical and public health engineering to deliver complete building services for projects of all types.
• Power plants. (hydel & thermal generation)
• Industrial Plants.
• Fire and Life Safety. (FLS)
• Vertical Transportation.
• Contracts.
• Ventilation system and Mechanical design of domestic, commercial and industrial buildings.
• Hydraulic Gates/ Gantries.
• Water and waste water treatment plants.
• Rising mains and pumping stations.

Quantity surveying in civil engineering is of great significance for preparation of budgeting lining up the resource to undertake a project and effective control the probabilities cost over runs, dispose claims of the contractors. DCE has a team of professional experienced quantity surveyors to apprise the investor precisely the magnitude of investment in realizing a project at a competitive price.

Balancing the world’s need for safe, reliable water with protecting this critical natural resource for the future requires a deep understanding of interconnected systems.
