We Exist to Build Great Things.®
WE EXIST TO BUILD GREAT THINGS.® It’s really that simple. We are a company of builders who exist to build great projects, great teams, great relationships, great value.
INVIOLABLE BELIEFS. Our core values are a starting point and help define what we do and how we do it. They underlie the passion that drives us to be better and different. They allow the freedoms of our entrepreneurial organization, where people are empowered to make decisions, to make a difference with their ideas and hard work, to find solutions and challenge traditional ways of doing things.
Integrity. We conduct all business with the highest standards of honesty and fairness; we can be trusted.
Enjoyment. We believe work should be fun and intrinsically satisfying; if we are not enjoying ourselves, we are doing something wrong.
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.

Our history tells our story. When we started in 1990, our founders had an opportunity to do things differently in an industry resistant to change. Choosing the name DPR, using the first letters of their first names, was the first sign of what Doug, Peter and Ron would create. It wasn't that they regarded themselves as important, but that they wanted to create a truly different kind of company. Surprising. Personal. Family-like, not family-owned.
Learn how the story
Doug Woods, Peter Nosler and Ron Davidowski set out to build something different in an industry traditionally resistant to change. Decades later, DPR serves customers around the world, building complex and sustainable projects of all sizes for some of the most notable companies on the planet.
Integrity has always been a part of DPR Construction’s core ideology. Our commitment to the highest standards of honesty and fairness is further defined in The DPR Code. We are pleased to share DPR’s Code of Conduct with our customers and business partners as we continue to build a great reputation for honoring commitments—doing what is right for employees, customers and the industry.
