DBI Design (then Media Five) was incorporated in Australia in 1980. The core expertise of the firm was drawn from specialist hotel and resort firms based in California and Hawaii. During the development boom of that decade DBI Design quickly established a reputation for innovative design of large scale resorts and mixed use master plans, hotels and multi-unit residential projects. Early landmark projects include the Mirage Resorts in Port Douglas, Gold Coast and Princeville Hawaii.

In addition to its impressive track record for the design of hotels, resorts and urban master planning, DBI is now a leader in Tall (+100m) and Super Tall (+300m) building design and construction and is a recognised leader in sustainable high rise technology.
