Company History

D.R. Associates was founded in 2005.  The company began as a building automation installation contractor.  In 2009, Jeff Strickland came on board and D.R. Associates took on the Honeywell line.  The business grew quickly based on reputation and quality.  In September 2016, Jeff purchased DR Associates. D.R. Associates is now considered one of Denver’s premier building automation contractors.  The company has seen tremendous growth under Jeff’s direction.  In 2017 DR associates became a Siemens dealer and now supplies both Honeywell and Siemens.  The company continues to grow and thrive, thanks to our skilled employees and loyal customers.

Core Beliefs

DR Associates strongly believes that our customers should “own” their systems.  We provide our customers with the most open systems possible and allow all customers full access credentials to all facets of their system.  We sell only products that multiple local contractors can provide and service. The building automation industry was founded using tactics to employ proprietary protocols and tool sets, thus charging massive premiums for their systems and future services.  Unfortunately, this mentality still exists.  Open protocols have become standardized yet, companies often find ways to make their systems proprietary forcing the customer to use their services.  We believe our customers should do business with us because they want to, not because they must.  We deal with our customers with honesty and integrity.  We want our customers to be our customers for the lifetime of their system by choice.

Our Team

DR Associates provides our customers with one of the most skilled and experienced teams in the Denver market.  As you can see below our team is comprised of highly skilled and qualified individuals.  Combined our team has over 150 years of experience and the majority of that experience was in the local Colorado market.
