Salisbury, MD. — Davis, Bowen & Friedel, Inc. (DBF), is celebrating 30 years of serving the Maryland Eastern Shore and the surrounding area in engineering, architecture, and surveying. Founded in June 1983, the company began in Salisbury, Md., with four employees in a one-room office and has grown into one of the largest full-service firms on the Peninsula, with a current staff of 79, including 26 registered professionals, in three offices across Delmarva.
Since its inception, DBF has worked diligently to provide quality projects that improve the communities of the Eastern Shore through work that includes new and renovated buildings, wind turbines, solar farms, wastewater treatment plants, street reconstruction, and advanced stormwater management projects across Delmarva and onto the Western Shore of Maryland.
Despite constant changes to the field of architecture, engineering, and surveying, one thing that has remained constant over the years is the firm’s commitment to providing professional services of a quality required for the area’s more challenging design projects. Davis, Bowen & Friedel, Inc.’s multi-disciplined capabilities have worked with more than 40 municipal and governmental clients over the past 30 years. While evolving with current technology, practices, and science, DBF continues to offer many services to the community including LEED professional architecture, certified civil and sanitary engineering, traffic engineering, surveying, GIS mapping, project management, and inspection. In 2007, a merger with a local based marine and coastal engineering firm, Andrews, Miller & Associates, increased the scope of services available to clients. Other services offered include multi-use site planning, hydrology, structural engineering, and 3D graphic services.
In addition to the work provided to clients in both the public and private sector, DBF has long fostered relationships in the community by providing annual scholarships to local high school students, sharing practical experience for future engineers and architects with hands-on internships for local college students, and contributing annually to charities such as The United Way, Women Supporting Women, and The Blood Bank of Delmarva.
