Established in 1972, The Design Group Five International (Pvt) Ltd (DG5) is one of the largest and most respected architectural and engineering consulting firms in Sri Lanka.
The multidisciplinary design firm has worked on over 1,600 projects, and its expertise ranges from personalized homes to high-rise mixed-use real estate and from hospitality
infrastructure to specialized projects. A big reason for the company’s technology muscle is the seed of its founders, including Suranjith de Silva, DG5 Chairman, who sowed right
from the beginning. The founding team—which had members who had studied and worked abroad—had a world view and understood how the use of technology could be a game-changer.
The bold technology investments that the founders made, resulted in DG5 working with some global prestigious clients such as Boeing, Seattle in its early years.
