Core Ideology

DPR Construction exists to build great things. It’s really that simple. We are a company of builders building great projects, great teams, great relationships, great value.

Our purpose and core values are a starting point that help clearly define who we are and what we stand for as a company. They underlie the passion that drives us to be better and different; they allow us the freedoms of our entrepreneurial organization, where people can make a difference with their ideas and hard work.

WE EXIST TO BUILD GREAT THINGS.

Core Values

DPR’s fundamental, inviolable values and beliefs:

  • INTEGRITY.
    We conduct all business with the highest standards of honesty and fairness; we can be trusted.

  • ENJOYMENT.

  • UNIQUENESS.
    We must be different from and more progressive than all other construction companies; we stand for something.

  • EVER FORWARD.
    We believe in continual self-initiated change, improvement, learning and the advancement of standards for their own sake.
