We find outstanding professionals, and we give them the freedom and
support to do what they do best.
To improve the quality of life while demonstrating stewardship of the built
and natural environments.
To work together doing whatever it takes to be recognized as the best by
our clients, employees, shareholders, and peers — locally, regionally,
DEA’s core values shape the culture of the firm. They are essential
to sustain the success of each office as an enjoyable and meaningful workplace
and as an effective service provider.
We must be scrupulously truthful with our clients, our coworkers, and ourselves
in our professional and personal actions and work.
We must be concerned for each other and act with respect and sensitivity toward
everyone with whom we interact.
We are unafraid of sharing good and bad news and believe knowledge of all
aspects of our company, if shared, will strengthen our efforts.
We recognize that DEA is not the center of the universe. Enjoying our efforts
and our workplace are essential to maintaining our professional excellence.
We are good citizens. We volunteer and provide professional advice to a variety
of community projects and enterprises.
We are keenly interested in new opportunities. We venture into new fields
and develop new approaches to our work. We do not take these risks lightly,
but seek input from our colleagues and clients so that all who are affected
are aware of the risks before action is taken.
We pride ourselves on providing for the well-being of DEA employees and their
families. To do so, we prepare adequate budgets and work within them in order
to produce the profit needed to attain financial security.
