Conshohocken, PA DPS Group, a privately-owned, global engineering, procurement, construction management, validation (EPCMV), and technical services firm serving the life science industries, has expanded its office at the Spring Mill Creative Campus located at 1020 Spring Mill Ave. DPS has moved into a converted warehouse building on the Spring Mill campus that boasts 20’ ceilings, large windows, exposed ceilings, and numerous collaborative spaces.
Serving high-tech industries around the world, DPS Group delivers full-service engineering across a range of disciplines, including project management, procurement, design, construction management, health and safety management, commissioning, qualification, and validation (CQV), and facility start-up.
“We are excited to be in our new, larger office space in the Spring Mill Creative Campus,” said Ryan McDonough, senior vice president of project operations for the DPS Philadelphia office. “The new office better accommodates our growing team and enables us to hire additional resources to continue to provide industry-leading support and service to our life science clients. The new space allows us to foster collaboration and innovation amongst team members and projects.”
Since acquiring Spring Mill in April of 2019, Alliance HP has spent over $10 million to upgrade the property, creating first-class amenities including a first-class fitness center and tenant lounge, upgraded common spaces, and functional upgrades. Alliance will spend an additional $5 million on capital projects as part of a second phase of renovations to complete the transformation of the former Lee Tire manufacturing plan to a Class A creative office building. Throughout the renovations, Alliance has incorporated branding elements honoring the Property’s industrial history.
“DPS Group is exactly the sort of tenant we set out to attract when we acquired and committed to fully renovating Spring Mill”, said Richard Previdi, CEO of Alliance HP. “Given the Property’s industrial history, we are pleased to see tenants like DPS choosing to locate their Philadelphia headquarters here contributing to innovation in a meaningful way. We look forward to continuing to attract innovative, “new-economy” tenants to Spring Mill.”
