Over the last 25 years, DAI has been a pioneering force in the growth and development of the Wasatch Front. The founders are passionate about building quality communities, where families and businesses thrive. DAI has developed over 8,000 acres of beautiful communities, which are some of the most sought-after places in Utah.
The management team has also been involved in the development of over 2 million square feet of office, 1000 multi-family rentals, as well as 150,000 square feet of self-storage units.
In the spring of 2009, Candlelight Homes was founded by the partners of DAI. With over 2600% growth in revenue over 8 years, Candlelight Homes climbed the ranks to become the 4th largest homebuilder in Utah. In January 2018, Candlelight Homes was acquired by Cal Atlantic Homes/Lennar Homes, the leading homebuilder in the nation.
