Affectionately known as “Big Daddy,” Troy Metcalfe retired last year after working more than 50,000 injury-free hours at DPR. Troy has been with the company since its infancy, and has always perfectly embodied the spirit of DPR’s Injury-Free-Environment throughout his 23 years with the company.

In 1999, Troy was the first DPR craftsperson to reach 10,000 injury-free work hours. This milestone inspired the creation of the regional Troy Metcalfe Safety Award and since then, almost 200 awards have been presented to Bay Area craftspeople.

The epitome of DPR excellence, Troy was not only recognized for the exceptional safety example he set in the field, but also his genuinely warm personality. Doug Woods—the "D" in DPR—said it best at last year's craft celebration, “Troy is what you want in an employee. He is a true ambassador for DPR, even beyond safety.”
