We commemorated Bruce Jennings’ 40th anniversary with DGR Engineering today. Bruce began his career in 1979 in the water department, and moved up the ranks from project manager to department head, and then served as president from 2003-2010. He continues in a part-time capacity today. Thank you for your dedication, Bruce!
Due to continued growth in the markets it serves, DGR Engineering is breaking ground on an expansion to its headquarters in Rock Rapids, Iowa. The work is slated to begin in earnest this month and is planned to be substantially complete by May 2020.
The addition will add over 21,000 square feet on three levels to the north end of the existing 29,000 square feet building. The new space will accommodate up to 40 additional staff members who the firm intends to hire over the next several years. In addition, it will provide improved conferencing, meeting, and common-area space for its current 90 employees who work out of the Rock Rapids location.
“We are thrilled to be able to make this investment in our home community,” says Blair Metzger, DGR Engineering President. “We are thankful for the support of our many great clients who continue to favor us with the opportunity to provide engineering solutions to them, which has necessitated a steady increase in our employment numbers, both here and in our branch offices”.
“We are excited to announce our plans to expand our Rock Rapids office,” says Marlin Overman, DGR Engineering Vice President. “We recognize the efforts of our talented and dedicated employees, who have enabled our business to grow, leading to the need for additional office space. We also appreciate the support and encouragement received from City of Rock Rapids leadership for our expansion.”
The company moved from its downtown Rock Rapids location into their newly constructed current office building in 2001, and an expansion was finished in 2009.
