What We Build Mission Critical

When it comes to mission critical, there’s no such thing as 6x23

DPR consistently ranks among the top five mission critical facility builders in the country for a reason. Our dedicated mission critical teams know that speed to market is essential in this sector, but we also couple our agility with cost and schedule predictability clients can count on. By leveraging our preconstruction expertise, from site selection to cost modeling, we help advanced technology companies make strategic and informed decisions for their projects.

Mission Critical Local/Global

The relentless pace of technology waits for no one, so mission critical facility builders must be nimble. DPR offers the best of both worlds: regional teams operating with the dexterity and geographical knowledge of a local contractor, while also staffed with top-notch talent and resources of a preeminent global builder.

Technical Experts

We help prominent companies with mission critical projects of all shapes and sizes, including greenfield builds, first-generation fit outs and retrofits of existing structures. Partnering with DPR, you get more than a general contractor—you have access to our expertise and capabilities in prefabrication, self-perform work and more. Plus, we have the technical talent to ensure a seamless commissioning phase, from emergency scenario planning to systems performance monitoring, so that your data center—and the business that depends on it—can hit the cloud running.

Up Time

In our connected, data-rich world, mission critical facilities must perform at 100% uptime, 24/7. That’s why DPR takes the long view when building mission critical facilities for the industry’s leading players. Instead of focusing only on a single project’s goals, we aim to be a business partner, offering a long-term, holistic plan to ensure the greatest value for the entire life of the facility and what it enables.
