DLR Group recently welcomed Principal Dan Sullivan as Higher Education Leader. Working from the Denver studio, Sullivan is slated to take an active role in major campus planning projects, build and foster relationships with clients, and cultivate new studies that will grow the Higher Education sector in a myriad of ways.

Sullivan’s experience involves campus and athletic planning, renovation and adaptive reuse projects of centuries-old military buildings, feasibility studies and facility assessments, and every phase of architectural documentation and construction administration.
