Today we celebrated the reopening of King Soopers #101 in Thornton, CO. The store remained open during the remodel, which consisted of structural slab repairs, relocation of the Frozen Food Department and US Bank, the addition of a Little Clinic, a new Floral Department, and remodeled Deli. Great job to the MYC Team and all of our Subcontractors!
Mark Young Construction, Inc. completed a number of education projects this summer, 23 in all, mostly school remodels spread across four districts along the Front Range.
MYC completed seven projects with Denver Public Schools at six different school locations, including the renovations of Edison Elementary, Lincoln High School, Schmitt Elementary, East High School, Place Bridge Academy, and JFK High School. These renovations consisted of remodeling classrooms, major MEP upgrades, and building envelope repairs.
The DPS Lincoln High School project posed a few unforeseen challenges for the MYC Construction team. “MYC was exceptional. When faced with the challenge of a non-contractor caused flood, filling the sub-basement with over 18 in. of water, MYC staff jumped in to help, diagnose, mitigate and address the unforeseen challenge as a team,” said DPS Project Manager Renee Verspoor. “The ability to recover and adapt to unforeseeable challenges with a positive attitude was invaluable. In the end, there was no impact to student return. MYC staff understood the importance of meeting the district’s educational needs, and worked diligently to ensure success.”
Kullerstrand Elementary was one of the 14 Jefferson County schools MYC worked on this summer. The renovation at Kullerstrand consisted of ADA Upgrades, minor structural improvements, and architectural upgrades. MYC also remodeled the kitchen of Cherry Creek High School’s West building in Greenwood Village, and renovated Greeley West High School.
The first full service grocery store in Downtown Denver opened Wednesday, August 12th.
King Soopers #115 opened Wednesday, August 12th! Why not celebrate? This is Downtown Denver’s first full service grocery store! King Soopers #115 is a condensed version of your regular King Soopers, containing a Sushi bar, full service Deli, Meat and Seafood, Starbucks, and everything else you can think of all within 37,225 Sq Ft. MYC was lucky enough to be the General and Refrigeration Contractor on the project. We would like to thank all our Subcontractors that were involved and of course a special thanks to King Soopers for allowing us to be apart of the success. Great job team!

Last Wednesday, July 16th, MYC celebrated three Grand Openings! We joined both Wal-Mart Neighborhood Markets #4747 in Northglenn and #3048 in Denver as well as King Soopers Marketplace #136 in Brighton for their ribbon cutting festivities. Great job MYC Team!
On Wednesday, July 16th MYC is celebrating three Grand Openings! There will be ribbon cutting ceremonies at two new Wal-Mart Neighborhood Markets in Northglenn and Denver.

Denver Fire Station No. 18 at Lowry is now open. To mark the occasion, Station No. 18 held a Hose Coupling Ceremony March 18th signifying its Grand Opening. The official ceremony included Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock.
The $8 million Denver Fire Station No. 18 was funded by the voter-approved Better Denver Bond program and was constructed by Mark Young Construction, Inc. (MYC). Improved response times are expected with the opening of this station; helping the fire department improve its risk rating, which positively affects insurance rates. Response times into Windsor Gardens, for example, are expected to drop to two minutes compared to the approximately six and a half minutes experienced with existing stations located farther away. The new station will also provide back-up support on the east side of Denver.
Station No. 18 was built as an active training center. The actual structure serves as a training prop – the station tower mimics a high-rise building, manholes in the floor offer an opportunity for confined space training – even the dumpsters serve as a training area. The station will also be LEED Silver or Gold rated for its sustainability. The station uses a ground source (geothermal) heat pump system for heating and cooling. Natural light through southern-facing exposures, solar tubes and skylights reduce energy usage. Xeriscaping around the station and low-flow plumbing fixtures inside mean more efficient water use. The Fire Station also features a community meeting room which will be available free of charge to community groups.
MYC is proud to have been a part of this project. Congratulations to Rich Jacobs, Superintendent; Nate Falkner, Project Engineer and Layla Betts, Project Coordinator for a job well done.
In late August, Engineering News Record (ENR) released its annual Top Contractors list. ENR ranked 2012’s general contractors, both publicly and privately held, based on construction contracting- specific revenue. The rankings are first based on annual revenue and are then further divided into specific market categories. Mark Young Construction has ranked well over the past few years and 2012 was no exception. The EXCITING news, MYC was ranked NUMBER 1 in the Retail Sector and NUMBER 18 in the Education Sector!
MYC is excited that we dominated the Retail Sector in 2012 and with the CSU Durrell project we achieved a ranking in the Education Sector for the first time. We look forward to continuing our success in these and other sectors in the coming years.
MYC has contracted 91 Kroger owned stores including King Soopers, City Market, and Dillons in the past 5-years. MYC has contracted 32 Wal-Mart Stores including Sam’s Club in the past 3-years.
