DPR lauded for interior work

DPR Construction's San Diego regional headquarters at 5010 Shoreham Place was recently honored with an "Award of Merit" for Interior Renovation by the American Institute of Architects California Council and Savings By Design group.

The DPR office was recognized for its commitment to resource efficiency, responsibility for the environment, human productivity and quality of life.

The 24,000-square-foot DPR regional headquarters was designed to be Net Zero Energy and is pursuing LEED platinum certification through the U.S. Green Building Council by incorporating natural ventilation, day lighting systems, low-flow plumbing fixtures and an Energy Star roof.

In addition to utilizing high-recycled content materials in its framework, the building's 64-kilowatt photovoltaic system generates enough power to offset its annual energy consumption.

DPR's architect was Jonathan Wood, of Seattle-based Callison.

Savings by Design is a statewide program that encourages high-performance, non-residential design and construction.

The program is sponsored by various California utility companies including San Diego Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, Southern California Gas Company, Sacramento Municipal Utility District, and Pacific Gas and Electric.

"Our San Diego headquarters is a true representation of DPR's culture," said Jay Leopold, regional manager of DPR Construction. "It is important for us to uphold sustainable practices while creating a positive workplace for our employees. The solar panels, skylights, roof monitors and glass roll-up doors are just a few attributes that make our building unique. We are honored that our new office has been recognized with this distinguished award."
