Embracing Technology

Embracing Technology

One of DB3’s five values is “Embracing Technology” and encouraging new thinking and bold ideas with help of technology. This goes beyond our passion for Building Information Modelling (BIM) and our investment in the latest technology that allows for 3D digital survey, high quality visualisations and accurate CAD drawings in both 2D and 3D.

Being named in the TOP 100 is also in recognition of the incredible work our in-house Developer and IT support team have achieved. Not only have they tackled the Covid-19 challenges and ensured a smooth business as usual transition to home working, they have also been busy developing our bespoke IQMS system and the new Home and Maker website.

Home & Maker Innovation

Home & Maker Innovation

One of our proudest innovations of 2020 is Home & Maker, brainchild of our Architectural Designer Isabella Open who submitted her idea to our Innovation Board and has been closely involved in executing her brilliant concept ever since.

Targeting homeowners, this new service sees us shifting into the B2C market, targeting homeowners directly for small scale home projects such as extensions or home office right up to new build projects. Our in-house Developer built the new website www.homeandmaker.com to make this an online architectural service, which enables homeowners to “designs dream homes at unbeatable value.”  We also developed a bespoke residential calculator for instant quotes and formulated easy steps in enabling consumers to start their projects.

The Secret behind our Reliable Projects

The Secret behind our Reliable Projects

A further reason why DB3 were named in the TOP 100 is due to our digital expertise that comes in the shape of our web based system IQMS3. This collaborative information management system has been developed, designed and coded in-house by our Developer to meet our need to secure our digital assets and more tightly manage project development.

Raising DB3’s Digital Presence

Raising DB3’s Digital Presence

Our marketing team have been actively involved in the Digital Enterprise Knowledge Exchange program, having attended the Go Digital–Live Conference, a number of Digital Courses and implemented their learnings to the DB3 marketing strategy.

As a result, the past twelve months has seen the DB3 brand undergo a digital transformation, with the rebranding from DarntonB3 to DB3, a new website, fine tuning of social media activities, the implementation of an SEO strategy, recruiting in-house video production talent and much more. These activities have raised brand awareness, assisted in attracting and recruiting talented architects and managers as well as winning new clients despite the current Covid-19 challenges.
