DPR new headquarters wins regional award

DPR Construction’s San Diego regional headquarters has been recognized by California Construction as the best “Green Building” in Southern California in the publication’s Best of 2010 awards program.

DPR’s San Diego office will be featured in the December 2010 issue of California Construction and honored at an awards ceremony on Dec. 1 in Long Beach.

The 24,000-square-foot office incorporates natural ventilation, day lighting systems, low-flow plumbing fixtures, solar panels, skylights, glass roll-up doors and roof monitors.

The building also has recycled materials in its framework and was designed with a 64-kilowatt photovoltaic system to generate enough power to offset its annual energy consumption. DPR is pursuing LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for its new headquarters.

All the winners will be entered in the National Best of 2010 competition and judged against winning entries from other regions.

The magazine’s statewide competition annually recognizes construction and design excellence in Northern and Southern California.

All entries are judged based on project management, client service, safety, design and functionality. An independent jury of industry experts in design and construction critic nominated projects in a variety of categories sorted by project type, which were completed in the last year.

This year, California Construction received more than 135 nominations and recognized 27 projects in Southern California and 26 projects in Northern California.
