On November 22nd, MYC broke ground on The Promenade Shops at Castle Rock. The 115,000 SF of construction consists of five junior anchors that will house TJ Maxx, Pet Co, Sports Authority, Ulta Beauty and one other mid level retail store. MYC was recently awarded two smaller core and shell buildings that are part of Block 1, C-1 and C-2. On the same site MYC will be breaking ground on the new 120,000 SF King Soopers #125 in January 2016. MYC looks forward to teaming with Alberta Development Partners and plans to pursue further opportunities on the site.
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.
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 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!
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.
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!
We sure know how to PAR-TEE! MYC’s Charity Golf Tournament benefiting Children’s Hospital Colorado brought out everyone’s inner kid for a good day on the green. We had a helicopter golf ball drop, plenty of contests, good food, and good company – with pictures to prove it!
Thank you to all of the awesome 136 golfers and sponsors! We successfully raised over $14,000 for a great cause, while having a blast. You can check out pictures from the event on Facebook.
