Helping world changers get the job done, Dr. Rogers brings vast academic medicine and healthcare campus expertise to forward-thinking general contractor
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 9, 2023 — DPR Construction, one of the nation’s top technical builders, announces that Juliet Rogers, Ph.D., MPH, President & Principal at Blue Cottage of CannonDesign, will join its Board of Directors. A skilled strategist, Rogers brings her vast knowledge of the complex world of academic medicine, children’s hospitals and large urban healthcare campuses to DPR. She will officially join the board in May.
Rogers guides an industry-leading consultancy that seeks projects marked by innovation, ideas, and clients who share a commitment to achieving exceptional outcomes and transformational impact. That vision is echoed in her role on DPR’s board, where she will work with a team of leaders shaping the future of construction.
“Juliet is a strong addition to the DPR Board of Directors as we continue to strategically grow our business and improve the way projects are delivered, whether it’s a large-scale healthcare campus or a small-scale tenant improvement,” said DPR CEO George Pfeffer.
The complex and ever-changing nature of construction is part of what drew Rogers to the built environment. In 2005, after earning a Master’s Degree in Public Health and a Doctorate in Health Organization and Policy at the University of Michigan, Rogers took on a project on the owner’s side, where she led the early strategic and operational planning and programming of a new 1.2 million-square-foot hospital tower. “The influence of the built environment on experience, functionality and strategic impact was clearer to me than ever before. Through that experience, I recognized that my calling was in planning, design and construction,” said Rogers.
In 2010, she founded Blue Cottage, an independent, woman-owned healthcare consulting firm and built a best-in-class team that outcompeted planning and design firms ten times their size. In 2019, Blue Cottage joined forces with CannonDesign.
“DPR’s strong values-oriented and people-focused culture is apparent, and the commitment of the leadership team to the ever-forward mission is palpable,” said Rogers. “I share their commitment to changing the industry and am excited to offer my support to the organization through service on the Board of Directors.”
