The Denver Service Center (DSC) is led by the National Park Service (NPS) mission to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. As the central planning, design, and construction management office for the National Park Service, we provide start-to-finish project management and delivery. Our work helps to protect the special places that preserve our country’s greatest collection of natural, historic, and cultural treasures.

We deliver our services through design and construction, transportation, planning, revegetation, information management, and contracting services; our experience runs deep and wide across our national parks. In FY 2018, our work included managing 326 design and construction projects across the country valued at more than $1.9 billion. 

Our actions allow for us to provide environmentally responsible and fiscally sound products as well as improve visitor safety, enjoyment, and access to park resources.
