DPR Construction: A Mission of Authenticity and Action to Achieve Zero Energy

Oregon Convention Center: Room 204
Track: Zero Energy

Starting with their first certified Zero Energy building in Phoenix, DPR Construction’s transformative offices demonstrate an unparalleled commitment to a Living Future. These living laboratories not only showcase viable energy strategies and technologies in varied climates, they prove how existing buildings are transformed into vibrant workspaces. 

A case study of the Washington DC regional office highlights the approach and lessons learned as the project nears the end of its reporting period.  Framing this project with DPR’s first Zero Energy building in Phoenix and most recent pursuit in Sacramento, illustrates DPR’s commitment to creating replicable examples of transformation and Zero Energy.

DPR’s legacy of Zero Energy buildings include 3 certified buildings and 2 buildings currently pursuing certification. The session will discuss years of lessons learned, while illustrating how those lessons informed subsequent projects.
