General Contractor of the Year: DPR Construction
DPR Construction has certainly left its mark on higher education in Phoenix, from the beautiful McCord Hall on Arizona State University’s Tempe Campus to the Phoenix Biomedical Campus and incoming Arizona Center for Law and Society downtown. Perhaps one of DPR’s greatest contributions to Arizona is healthcare facilities. The Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of Arizona Medical Center, ASU College of Nursing and Health Innovation, Translational Genomics Research Institute and many for John C. Lincoln and Banner Health are all stand outs for the company’s Phoenix office over the years. It’s no wonder then that with its work on the RED Award winning Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center Phase II expansion that DPR topped the list as general contractor of the year. The company also showed exemplary work in 2014 on the CyrusOne data center’s building four and SkySong 3.
