JE Dunn Construction Marks Centennial Year with Community Efforts and Employee Appreciation

DALLAS, TX — JE Dunn Construction is celebrating its 100th anniversary nationwide throughout 2024. Local employees will engage in a year-long campaign that recognizes its legacy and demonstrates gratitude for its employees, local and national clients, and partners while looking forward to its commitments for the next 100 years.

The Dallas office will be hosting special events, volunteering in the community, and displaying commemorative signage at its construction sites. JE Dunn has had a local presence in Dallas/Fort Worth for almost 30 years.

JE Dunn’s work program extends throughout North Texas and includes projects with Children’s Medical Center, Parkland Health, DFW International Airport, the University of Texas System, Dallas College, Collin College, SMU, John Peter Smith Hospital, City of Dallas, City of Benbrook, and numerous private clients. JE Dunn recently completed the Loews Arlington Hotel and Convention Center located in the entertainment district near AT&T Stadium and Globe-Life Field.

Dallas is one of 26 office locations across the country and regional headquarters for the South Central region. The family- and employee-owned company has grown by establishing partnerships, providing community engagement, and delivering client experience while building North Texas.

“Construction impacts everyone in a community. In North Texas, and across the country, JE Dunn prioritizes building lasting relationships, growing support systems, and giving back to help meet the needs within our communities,” said Chris Peck, Senior Vice President, and Dallas Officer Leader.

Community Impact
JE Dunn is nationally recognized for giving back through JE Dunn’s Community Impact team. An average of 50,000 volunteer hours are donated by employees annually. Thanks to its employee match program, community ambassador network, and philanthropic leadership within each of its offices, the company contributed to more than 1,000 nonprofits in 2023 and donates 10 percent of its pre-tax net income to charities each year.

Over the years, JE Dunn’s Dallas Office has financially supported and volunteered with nonprofits in the North Texas region including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas, the North Texas Food Bank, The Salvation Army of North Texas, the Momentous Institute, Bonton Farms, and others.

“We have more than 140 employees in our Dallas office, and we want them to take the time and use the resources we have as a company to give back to the communities in which we work and live," Peck said. "It is a privilege to support our employees making a difference by volunteering their time and talents to help local organizations improve their communities.”

A national centennial initiative, Building a Legacy: A Century of Generosity, will kick off in 2024, extending JE Dunn’s community impact and celebrating the employees and communities that have been foundational to the company’s success and longevity. Ten organizations will be selected by employees to receive a gift of $100,000 to empower their work in the communities where JE Dunn employees live, work, and build, for a total impact of $1 million nationwide.
