Rosendin ranks #3 on Silicon Valley Business Journal's Largest Private Companies list.

Silicon Valley Business Journal

It should come as no surprise that a construction firm tops our List of the largest private companies in Silicon Valley once again this year, since 27 out of the top 50 are a part of the design and build industry.

DPR Construction is No. 1 on the List for at least the third year running with $6.04 billion in companywide revenues for 2019.

The Redwood City-based contractor has a total of 26 offices in the U.S. and recently worked on the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University and Digital Realty’s new 40,000-square-foot data center at 1725 Comstock St. in Santa Clara.
