The Meaning Behind our Company Name
After much thought, we chose the name Dextera because of its meaning which is to “Pledge or be the Right Hand.” At Dextera, that’s exactly what we are… your right hand and we pledge to provide our professional services to you in the most reliable, trustworthy, fair and valuable manner possible. Whether you are at the conceptual planning stage or already involved in construction, our program and project management services provide true benefits and project savings.
Our Focus, Expertise and Philosophy of Collaboration
Our focus during the past three decades has been primarily in the hospitality and gaming industry, however, we at Dextera, are also professional experts in the general development, planning, design and construction management field. Our successful track record demonstrates that we know how to create a collaborative team approach to achieve a successful project. As your right hand, it is our responsibility to ensure that all team members are accountable to complete their respective scope of services within the designated timeline. We ensure this by providing leadership and ownership of the issues.
Our office is organized to ensure all work is done either directly by partners or is personally supervised on a daily basis. All our staff members are accomplished and highly knowledgeable professionals in technical, administrative and field supervisory roles with capabilities of providing a full-range of preconstruction and construction services.
