Core Values


  • We tailor a delivery approach to our clients’ specific project needs. This enables our project team to focus on our clients’ goals, leverage our knowledge to add value and constructability analysis, and develop plans that chart a course for overall project success.
  • The most important feature that we offer is our people. Our teams are comprised of highly experienced and dedicated professionals who have worked together for most of their respective careers.
  • We will be excellent stewards of our clients’ capital, will treat those funds as if they were our own, and will provide timely information relative to project budgets and any potential changes or impacts.

Dahlgren welcomes the challenge of a difficult project. Our emphasis on project and pre-activity planning is one of the reasons that we are confident in successful project deliveries regardless of complexity, location, or other specific constraints.

Every new job has unique elements. Our diverse experience on hundreds of past projects enables us to apply our knowledge on jobs we’ve previously performed, or leverage our knowledge to apply an existing technique to a special project or process.

Honesty & Integrity

  • First and foremost, we demand honesty and integrity from our employees, suppliers, subcontractors and all who are associated with our projects; anything less is not accepted.
  • We operate on an open book basis. All our documents and records are available to our clients.


  • Our people are motivated and promote our success because of our leadership, and the atmosphere of our organization.
  • We are firm believers in continuous improvement; we incorporate learning opportunities and goals into projects and frequently hold post-project reviews to measure successes as well as areas for enhancement.
  • Our employees are rewarded for their contributions through a variety of incentive programs.

Individual work crews have performance goals to meet on each portion of the project, and they consistently meet or beat these challenges.

This level of quality extends to the experienced and skilled specialists on our direct hire crews, as well as the specialty trades we hire.

Total Client Satisfaction

  • Meeting or exceeding our clients’ goals is top priority. We believe that our efforts toward our clients’ success will promote our success.
  • Our decisions and actions are based on promoting long term client relationships.
