dbHMS was founded in 2002 as a different type of design firm – one that relied on data and analysis to pursue better building systems. In 2019, the firm merged its High-Performance Design and Sustainability Planning practices into the DataBased+ studio. This studio applies research-driven solutions in human-centered design strategies that deliver high quality of life, allowing clients to achieve ambitious performance goals. The DataBased+ approach works within clients' logistic and budgetary constraints to deliver cost-optimal approaches that meet project quality expectations without sacrificing the quality of life of any person.
