Firms in Focus | DPR Construction, 9606 N. Mopac Expy.,Austin, Texas
President: Matt Hoglund
What's new: Recent projects in the area include the University of Texas Robert B. Rowling Hall and the University of Texas System Administration Replacement Office Building.
Regional Manager DPR Construction "It's no secret that Austin's economy has outpaced the national economy and that of many other large cities in recent years," says Hoglund. "The current construction market is being driven by several large projects ranging from hotels to corporate relocations to the new University of Texas Medical School. Activity has strained local labor in an extreme way with regard to resource availability and cost, which is forcing DPR and other companies to investigate alternative project delivery methods to ensure the success of our projects."
