Reassurance Regarding COVID-19

During this time of unease, we can be grateful to live in a world where technology allows us to work safely from home. Nearly half of our staff have opted to telecommute during this time, and we fully back their decision. Site visits are made only when deemed necessary and with the proper social distancing protocols in place. All other meetings are being held online via teleconferencing or video calls.

While everyday lives are being disrupted, our work continues as normal or as close to normal as possible. Our cleaning staff is now regularly disinfecting our office from top to bottom and our staff is helping daily by keeping all surfaces clean and disinfected, including door handles, office equipment, and shared kitchen space. We are taking the necessary precautionary steps to ensure our workplace stays safe.

Our employees and our clients are our top priority. We encourage you to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations to remain healthy and safe. We will get through this together – and until then, we are always just a call or an email away.

2018 Multi-Housing News Excellence Awards

MALDEN
We were proud to be part of the DSF Group project team, which won a Silver award in the 2018 Multi-Housing News Excellence Awards Best Value-Add Renovation category for our Halstead Malden Square project. DMS provided architectural design services for the project, which renovated 10,000 SF of existing space in a luxury apartment building in Malden. The project branded and upgraded the space, adding a fitness center, club and lounge space, business center with private meeting pods, as well as exterior improvements to the courtyard, including an enhanced fire pit, life-sized games, luxury seating, and a bocce court. The judges found the project to be “thoughtful in colors, materials and design, instead of relying solely on construction.”
