Who builds Triangles?

Congratulations to DA Grandparent Robert Teer, honored by the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce with the Civic Honor Award. Given annually since 1933, the award is given to people who have made “extraordinary contributions” to the community.

Teer is the third generation of his family involved in contracting, building and development. Through the company founded by his grandfather he was involved in early Research Triangle Park construction. Since 1986, he’s been president of his own company, Durham-based Teer Associates, which has been involved in building projects including offices for IBM Corp, GlaxoSmithKline, United Therapeutics Corp. and Biogen Idec.

Who among our students will build the next economic engines of the Triangle? That is not a hypothetical question.
