In 1976, SPM was dissolved and a new firm, DDR International, was founded. During the 8 years of its existence, DDR was responsible for scheduling hundreds of projects across the globe. This include the delivery of Hartsfield International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia over 4 months early utilizing the Draper system.
In 1984, DDR was dissolved, and Gary Draper founded Draper & Associates. Since its founding 35 years ago, Draper & Associates had helped our clients deliver success on more than 4500 projects across a diverse list of industries. In the 60 years since Gary Draper started providing project management services to the construction industry, the tools and techniques have evolved and expanded. However, the original challenges identified in 1968 remain in today’s construction industry and the key concepts developed by Mr. Draper remain the core principals for how we serve our clients everyday.
