ABOUT DAVD (diː-eɪ-viː-diː)
WHO WE ARE
DAVD Consulting Engineers (est. 2000), is an independent technology consulting (ICT) firm specialising in design solutions for the Aged Care & Retirement Living, Corporate, Education, and Hospitality industries. We produce detailed documentation for tender by suitable specialist Contractors.
We are an “intricacy of Engineers” with a passion for proven Technology, and its ability to advance the people who embrace it.

WHAT WE PROVIDE
We provide our consultancy services by documenting customised ICT solutions which reflect both the project & brand’s need.
We develop our design requirements by collaborating with the ICT & AV Managers, Operations Teams and Head Office Project Directors.
We then deliver our expertise as the “Operational Technology Consultant”. We collaborate with the team being a combination of the Project Manager, Architect, Builder, Interiors’ Architect, and Electrical Services Consultants, plus preferred / incumbent Suppliers and Contractors. The result is a fit-for-purpose Technology choice, seamlessly integrated into its environment, and precise commissioning expectations which fulfil the operational needs of the end users.
We differ from many as we encourage that we remain part of the team until after project completion and handover, providing a technical buffer between our Client and the Contractors. This results with a seamless flow from Client Vision – Design – Engineering – Tender – Construction – Commissioning – Staff Training and then through to overseeing the Staff interaction with the technologies. Being hands-on, we are commonly amongst the last project team members to leave the building.
This approach results in considerable time and cost savings, as the Operations teams are not burdened with the responsibility of briefing Contractors on how the system is to function after it is installed.
We are proud to share that our designs have received much praise for having, on most occasions, negligible / nil variations to contract due to this up-front design diligence.
