DPR Construction acquires Hardin Construction

Expands presence in Southeast and Texas


By DPR Construction | April 19, 2013
DPR Construction has purchased Atlanta-based Hardin Construction Company. The companies are combining operations in the Southeast and Texas markets, including Atlanta, Austin, Texas, Houston, and Raleigh, N.C.

DPR Construction, a national builder specializing in complex and sustainable projects, announced today its purchase of Atlanta-based Hardin Construction Company, LLC. The two companies are combining operations in the Southeast and Texas markets, including Atlanta, Austin, Houston, Raleigh, Tampa, Orlando and West Palm Beach. The combined company will operate nationally as DPR Construction, with the exception of Atlanta where it will operate as DPR Hardin Construction.

“We’re excited to add such a great company of builders to our organization. We’ve always had tremendous respect for Hardin and share a common approach to business, particularly our commitment to customers, our people and core company values,” said Doug Woods, co-founder and president of DPR. “Together, we are even stronger, particularly in the Southeast, a geography that offers significant growth potential.

“Hardin is a good fit for DPR. We share ideals and beliefs, we are both active in the communities in which we operate, and, most of all, we both care a great deal about our people and moving the industry forward,” said Brantley Barrow, who has served as Chairman of Hardin since 1979 and, along with retiring President, Bill Pinto, will assume supporting roles throughout the Southeast.

Russ Brockelbank, an Atlanta-native and a 15-plus-year Hardin veteran, will continue to be responsible for day-to-day Atlanta operations for DPR Hardin Construction. “We’re excited about what this deal means for our customers and employees. Now, our presence is stronger, our roots run even deeper, and our experience is unmatched in the marketplace.”

The newly-combined company will have seven offices and more than 500 professional staff and craft employees throughout the Southeast and Texas, with a projected 2013 revenue exceeding $800 million. Operating as a “local builder with national capabilities,” DPR will have 18 offices nationally, with nearly 3,000 professional staff and craft employees and a projected 2013 revenue of $2.8 billion. The company will continue to focus on its core markets and building complex and sustainable projects.

Both companies are privately held and terms of the agreement will not be disclosed. Hardin projects currently under construction will be completed as Hardin Construction, including joint venture projects.
