FIRM BACKGROUND

GENERAL:
David Babcock & Associates was established in 1998. Since then, DBA’s portfolio has grown to include a diverse body
of work including land planning, landscape architecture, and interior architecture, with projects primarily located in the
Northern California region. The firm’s success is derived from the combination of a creative design team and the firm’s
ability to maintain strong leadership and relationships with clients throughout all phases of the design and construction
processes. DBA takes a hands on approach with each project by directing the project strategy, providing creative
design concepts, and drawing upon sub-consultant resources to assemble a project team capable of meeting the
project objectives, while also satisfying the constraints of budgets and deadlines.
