What makes it so great?
The builder has the feel of a Silicon Valley startup, with bagel breakfasts, bring-your-dog-to-work days, and even ski trips. Last year more than 200 employees and their families enjoyed three-day weekends in two cabins owned by DPR in Lake Tahoe.

DPR and Hardin combine operations in Atlanta, Austin, Houston, Raleigh, Orlando, Tampa and West Palm Beach to build a stronger national organization and a dominant force in technical and sustainable construction.
Armed with an unyielding shared passion for customer satisfaction and building complex, sustainable projects, DPR Construction and Hardin Construction have joined forces through an acquisition completed in April. Integrating operations in Atlanta, Austin, Houston, Raleigh, Orlando, Tampa and West Palm Beach, the leading technical builder will continue to operate as DPR Construction nationally and DPR Hardin Construction in Atlanta.
The newly-combined company includes more than 500 professional staff and craft operating out of seven regional offices and a portfolio of more than 2,000 projects in the Southeast and Texas, built over more than 65 years. Nationally, the addition of Hardin employees increases DPR’s numbers to nearly 3,000 employees, 18 total offices, and a projected volume of $2.8 billion for 2013.
