MYC Hosts DPS Career Day

Mark Young Construction had the honor of hosting Denver Public Schools’ Bear Valley International Middle School for a Career Day. Fifteen 6th graders learned through a Kata presentation about the importance of communication, following instructions, and practicing to get better through a Lego activity. Following that, they had the opportunity to help build a giant human foosball table and more importantly, had the chance to play. Thank you to everyone at MYC who helped as well as to DPS and Bear Valley International MS for coming out and learning more about the construction industry.

IMG_6880

On February 24th, Mark Young Construction, Inc. hosted a charity fundraiser to support the Denver Fire Fighter’s Burn Foundation at CB & Potts. This fun event challenged cooks to create a chili that could win the favor of attendees and the guest judges. Everyone who attended voted for their favorite by placing a Lego piece in the chili cup of their choosing. The fire fighters were the guest judges and awarded first and second place, with the popular vote being the deciding factor for third place. The winners took home prizes for their hard work. There were 20 chili entries. First place was awarded to Dennis Wolfe from MYC for his Big Ass Elk chili, second place went to Garrett Burrell from MYC for his Chili Wailua, and third place went to Scott Marks from Horizon Reprographics for his Dragon’s Breath chili. There was also a creative chili name competition that attendees voted on and the winner was Pete Wybenga from Europtics for his chili named Hydrant Humper.

The event also showcased wonderful silent auction items to bid on from local companies. Attendees came from all backgrounds of the AEC community and had the opportunity to mingle and network. Kristen Tonsager from Clutch Design Studios said “I was impressed at the quantity of entries; from spicy green chili to traditional red chili – the spice and flavor did not disappoint! What a great event to benefit a great cause!”

MYC would like to thank everyone who participated and attended. Thanks to our amazing chili pot sponsors, the more than 75 attendees, and silent auction sponsors, we were able to hand over $5,417 to the Denver Fire Fighters representatives who were there for the Burn Foundation.

MYC Takes Home Two Awards from ENR Best Projects Mountain States 2015

The team at Mark Young Construction, Inc. took home two awards Thursday, October 29th from the ENR Best Projects Mountain States awards breakfast. The newly constructed Denver Fire Station #18 took Best Project in the Small Project Category (Under $10 Million) and the recent renovations of the Spot Booth and Beer Garden at Red Rocks Amphitheater earned the award of Merit in the Cultural/Worship category. Each project posed unique challenges to the project teams that were overcome through a great amount of teamwork and creativity.

Denver Fire Station #18 at Lowry:DCIM100GOPRO

OZ Architecture met the needs of the City and County of Denver by designing a building that could perform multiple functions, serving as both a station and training facility, with the latest fire technology, an efficient design, community space, and LEED Gold certification. The 14,000 SF project consisted of 3-bays, 8-bedrooms, a workout room, a commercial kitchen, and a common area for the staff and a community room for the public. A 120’ communication tower was added to improve communication between this station and other first responders during a crisis.

Mark Young Construction, Inc. was able to adjust construction of the geothermal installation, planned on the site near an old landfill, in order to continue other construction activities while planning and permitting for the geothermal work was sorted out by the team. Despite the unforeseen conditions MYC accomplished the project nearly a month ahead of time and within budget.

 

Red Rocks Spot Both and Concessions Renovations:Beer Garden View

Red Rocks Amphitheater has gone through many additions and renovations since opening in 1941. Pahl Architecture and MYC completed the most recent renovations to the park. The two old spot light booths were demolish and new ones were constructed on the same foot prints, two new beer gardens were added, along with a platform at the visitors plaza to provide separate ADA seating and an additional stairway to the trading post. A lower level storage area was remodeled to accommodate ADA restrooms.

This project was successful due to Pahl Architectures’ dynamic floor plans that were visually appealing and MYC’s ability to preserve the integrity of theater through matching the original 1936 stonework style by working on the stone by hand. After the project was completed many visitors could not tell the difference between the new structures and the old, arguing that they had always been there. This is the highest compliment anyone could pay the design and construction team on such a historic site.

MYC would like to congratulate both project teams! Job well done!
