Doug Woods, the D in DPR, passed away peacefully at his home on May 19 at the age of 70. Doug co-founded DPR with Peter Nosler and Ron Davidowski in 1990.

Guided by a strong sense of purpose (We Exist to Build Great Things.®) and four core values (integrity, enjoyment, uniqueness, ever forward), the three “lettermen” built DPR on trust, shared leadership and collaboration. As a founding member of DPR’s Management Committee until 2017 and a member of the Board of Directors, Doug loved construction—building great projects, great teams, great relationships and a great company.

His passion for building went hand in hand with his love of people and that love was felt deeply by everyone around him. He was a caring father, partner, mentor, coach and friend.

Ever Forward, Doug. DPR misses you every day.

Words of wisdom: Doug talks about breaking down barriers and loving what you do every day.
