SAN DIEGO, CA — Joined by developer Gemdale USA and end user Neurocrine Biosciences, DPR Construction recently topped out Aperture Del Mar in San Diego. More than 80 local workers from a variety of trades worked 60,700 hours without a recordable incident to bring the project to this point.

“This milestone is always a testament to the hard work of everyone in the skilled trades, but it is extremely notable how our steel structural partners were able to phase work to pick up three weeks in the schedule that could have been lost due to the incredibly rainy winter we had,” said Tim Book, a DPR Project Executive leading the job.

San Diego received more rain in Q1 2023 than it did for all of 2022. Planning and coordination among all team members helped mitigate weather-related delays.

For what will be Neurocrine’s future headquarters, the project includes two four-story 140,000-square-foot building shells over 35,000-square-foot basements. The scope also includes a new loading dock, sitework, and a 13,000-square-foot fitness center.

Ranked among the top 50 general contractors in the country since 1997, DPR Construction is a technical builder and a global self-performing commercial contractor and construction manager.
