Welcome to the inaugural edition of "Great Things." When we decided to relaunch the DPR newsletter, we wanted a name that encapsulates who we are, our culture, our core values, our missions, camps, goals, strategies, etc. After intense discussion, we realized it had been right in front of us the entire time: Great Things
DPR’s purpose is: We Exist to Build Great Things.® It’s that simple. We are a company of builders building great teams, great relationships, great programs and great projects throughout the world. “Great Things” is representative of who we are, and we’re excited to share stories of the great things our great teams are building every day. We hope that the stories you read spark even more great ideas and possibilities for building a better tomorrow. Ever forward.
It seemed like a given: renovating a 1980s office space to achieve Net-Zero Energy (NZE) use would require additional insulation. But the team who designed and built DPR Construction’s new Washington, D.C. regional office had three prior DPR NZE offices worth of data to lean on as they worked.
Healthcare construction projects are inherently complex, challenging and often downright difficult. DPR Construction embraces these challenges as opportunities to advance the company’s learning and continual improvement. Nine key indicators for successful healthcare construction emerged from a study of seven highly technical, complex hospital projects.
A shift to data-driven technology is changing almost every aspect of our economy. The availability and affordability of cloud computing is driving the ability to consume, analyze and package data into shareable blocks of information. Learn about how to make better use of data gathered during design and construction to produce and maintain smart and sustainable facilities.
Now in its third year, DPR’s Build Up internship program brought 23 high-achieving, STEM-learning high school students to the front lines of construction during the summer of 2019. Many of the students, who plan to be the first in their families to attend college, have never had the opportunity to be on a construction site. DPR’s Build Up High School internship program gives high schoolers firsthand construction industry work experience.
