He was great, taking on (unexpected) challenges and stress, and he handled it like a champ. See the Project Numerous challenges faced and overcome "I saw firsthand many of the numerous challenges that Pinkard and the entire construction team had to face and ultimately overcome. These challenges were frequent occurences, and involved portions of the existing 40-year old concrete structure interfering with planned construction. Pinkard was always conscientious about communicating field issues, putting together detailed as-builts to clarify the changes, and to diligently work to sequence and oversee subcontractor performance. Thanks to all members of your team who made so many important contributions to the success of this project." See the Project Workmanship is excellent "We had a very demanding standard for quality. Pinkard made sure that the subs did what they were supposed to do and did it correctly. The final product speaks for itself - workmanship is excellent." See the Project Advising on the materials "Pinkard was really good at advising on the longevity and success of certain materials versus others, providing the context of 'we've tried that before, and the clients didn't like it after six months, or yes, that's a great product, or we see where you're going with that vision, but let's use this instead of that.' But then always balancing that with the mindfulness of our tight budget." See the Project Very resourceful in meeting challenges "Although (our construction) plan was thorough and very well thought out, this 114-year old hotel contained many more obstacles than we ever imagined. In my 36 years as an owner’s representative and project manager, I can honestly say that the project was in my top five as most challenging. Pinkard was very resourceful in meeting these challenges, and provided an excellent level of workmanship. My client loves their new spa, and is very pleased that the level of quality is in keeping with their Four Diamond standard."

  • Pinkard Construction Launches Pinkard Frameworks, Expands Self-Perform Wood Framing Division

    Pinkard Construction Launches Pinkard Frameworks, Expands Self-Perform Wood Framing Division 2023-11-13 Share Share Pinkard Construction, a leading construction company in Colorado, is excited to announce the launch of Pinkard Frameworks, a wood framing division that will serve as a trade partner to developers and general contractors along the Colorado front range. Pinkard Frameworks will continue to self-perform wood framing for Pinkard Construction. According to Tony Burke, President of Pinkard Construction, "We are thrilled to offer Pinkard Frameworks as a separate division to our clients, developer partners, and fellow general contractors. We believe providing a dedicated and specialized team for wood framing projects will streamline the construction process and ensure the highest quality of work." The division is headed by Wood Framing Manager Dan Harris, who has over 40 years of experience in construction. Harris is actively recruiting staff and already has a dedicated project engineer and superintendent. Additionally, Pinkard Frameworks will have access to the resources of Pinkard Construction, which has over 120 construction professionals and over 60 years building multi-family projects, and over 50 wood-framed projects. Pinkard Frameworks aims to modernize the wood framing industry by offering detailed project assessments, identifying value-adds, and ensuring on-site supervision of the wood framing process. "We want to provide our clients with top-quality service that exceeds their expectations," says Harris. "We achieve this by collaborating with truss fabricators in preconstruction, ensuring framing designs that meet architectural and structural intent, seamless integration with other trades, and a budget-friendly, faster, and higher-quality project." Pinkard Frameworks provides preliminary truss design, in-house estimating, and shop drawing reviews to prevent conflicts and cascading issues that stop construction progress for redesigns. The division will ensure that an on-site framing superintendent is briefed throughout the design process and is a trained, experienced carpenter who manages all material and labor to the contract intent. Harris says Pinkard’s recent efforts on Krisana Affordable Housing created a framing design that saved the Owner over $250,000. He adds that Pinkard Frameworks is under contract to provide wood framing services for two other Pinkard projects, akin Tennyson in Denver and Willoughby Corner in Lafayette. "We are excited about the launch of Pinkard Frameworks and look forward to working with our clients to provide them with the best possible service," concludes Burke.

  • Kuhlman Building Adaptive Re-Use | Pinkard Construction | Colorado

    Kuhlman Building Adaptive Re-Use Denver, Colorado, USA Koelbel & Company 45,000 Sq. Ft., 45 Units Affordable Housing, Multi-Family Housing, Enterprise Green Communities, LIHTC, Renovation The Kuhlman Building project was the adaptive reuse of the existing 45,000 sq ft Kuhlman Building into for-rent affordable multi-family housing and retail/restaurant space. The affordable housing portion of the project consisted of approximately 40-50 units with a mix of studios, one and two bedrooms, two retail/restaurant pads, one in the Kuhlman Building, and one stand-alone. The new stand-alone pad was a 2,500 sq ft warm grey shell retail building near West 17th Avenue and Perry Street. Additionally, there was 4,500 sq ft of retail within the existing building. The site was approximately 50,000 sf and was located at the northwest corner of West 16th Avenue and Perry Street. Funding for the project came from a combination of developer equity, federal low-income housing tax credits, tax-increment financing from the Denver Urban Renewal Authority, and a performance loan from the Denver Office of Economic Development. The Kuhlman Building required gutting the interior but with only minor changes to the building's exterior. Over the years, the five-story brick building had served as a nunnery, a nursing school and dormitory, and administrative offices for St. Anthony Hospital. The Kuhlman Building was located within the larger Sloan's Lake/St. Anthony Hospital redevelopment area, which was named Sloans. When complete, the Sloans neighborhood included an Alamo Drafthouse, Highland Tap & Burger, the Raleigh office building, a 12-story condominium tower, a seven-story apartment community, a 6,000 square-foot retail strip, plus the Kuhlman development, all in a seven-block area between Sloan's Lake and West Colfax Avenue. The Kuhlman project was a development partnership by Koelbel and Co. and Trailbreak Partners, and Van Meter Williams Pollack provided the design.

  • Pinkard Self Performs Unique Design Features

    Pinkard Self Performs Unique Design Features 2022-03-14 Share Share On the Moorhead Recreation Center project, BRS’s impressive rope wall was thoroughly mocked up in miniature during design. During bidding, the feature was so unique only one subcontractor was willing to “throw a number at it” — to the tune of $20,000. Convinced that the number was excessive, Pinkard decided to self-perform the work. After all, we would just be running a length of rope through a series of eyelets, pulling the rope tight, and we’d be done. We set aside one person to do the work in one day. When it came time to construct the 70-foot-long art piece, the installation procedures determined during the mock-up phase didn’t work: the rope wouldn’t slide through the eyelets, and tensioning the rope to the required specifications caused stainless steel eyelet bolts to strip and shoot out at an alarming velocity entirely. Senior PM Derek Stathis: “This installation was incredibly complicated. We had different colored climbing ropes looped up and down within a steel frame, with the loops interconnecting to form a colorful waterfall pattern. But you can’t just weave it all simultaneously and tighten it. You have to put it through a top, loop it in the middle of the frame with another section of rope coming up from the bottom, then pull it to the top; then use the come-along to tighten it; clamp it off, then do another loop. You can’t pull more than one at a time because the eyelets are too small to let the rope slide freely. Our field engineer did it a little bit, and he got blisters. We did this for 1,000 feet of rope.” Ultimately, this one-person job required two carpenters two full weeks to complete, and it required several field modifications including the addition of carabiners to help the rope slide and a rope safety system to eliminate the risk of the eyelet bolts blowing out. The completed rope wall is stunning and the recreation center's crown jewel.

  • Project Rewind: Keeping Costs Down So Astroscale Can Zap Space Trash in Style 

    Project Rewind: Keeping Costs Down So Astroscale Can Zap Space Trash in Style 2024-06-06 Share Share There’s a lot of talk about creating a more sustainable future here on this planet, but less about doing so beyond the earth’s inner atmosphere. Enter Astroscale, which since 2013 has been working to advance safe and sustainable growth in outer space by extending the life of orbiting satellites and clearing the skies of hazardous space debris. Founded and headquartered in Japan, Astroscale chose Denver for its U.S. headquarters. Located in South Denver, off Broadway and Evans, the company found its new office in the form of a 100-year-old building—once home to a metal foundry—featuring heavy timbers, a brick envelope, huge windows, glass block, and open spaces. The design intent of the 13,500 square foot renovation was to complement the existing structure and its history with an innovative office space inspired by traditional Japanese design and the science fiction of Star Wars and Star Trek . After coming in second in the bidding stage, Pinkard was hired by Astroscale in the Spring of 2022 to save the renovation when the originally-hired contractor fell drastically behind in preconstruction. To quickly get up to speed, Pinkard worked closely and diligently with Astroscale and NeoEra Architecture to analyze the previous contractor’s preconstruction efforts and provide effective value engineering to get the design into budget. “Pinkard spent a lot of time in preconstruction trying to match program and budget and still have reputable, ethical, trustworthy subcontractors,” says Astroscale senior vice president Becky Yoder. “I cannot say enough good things about the Pinkard team, how well they work together, and how transparent they were.” One of Pinkard’s key goals was through design optimization and executing the project in a way that kept costs under a critical threshold, preventing Astroscale from having to conduct hundreds of thousands of extra flood gate work that would have been required by the city if the remodel exceeded the value of the building. Of course, none of Pinkard’s savvy budgeting meant compromising on quality. “There were things that Pinkard wouldn't accept from the mill worker, so they had to go back and refabricate,” remembers NeoEra principal architect Emily Adams. “These weren't always the fastest solutions, but they were definitely the best solutions. I really appreciated that.” As to whether those cost-saving measures came at the expense of the interior’s stunning, sci-fi-inspired design, the pictures speak for themselves. “We came in on time and on budget,” says Becky Yoder. “This is my third building to finish out in the aerospace industry, and this was by far the best experience I've had. And considering the challenges with this old building, I would highly recommend Pinkard.” Learn More Adaptive Reuse Construction Learn More Office Renovations and New Construction See Projects Renovations and Additions See Projects Share This Story Share Share More News Sort By Topic Reset Men’s Mental Health Month: “We Must Keep Talking About It” 2024-06-28 Learn More Men’s Mental Health Month: “I don’t have the answers, but I can listen” 2024-06-14 Learn More Men’s Mental Health Month: “We have to create a community” 2024-06-21 Learn More Pink Crew Breaks Personal Best While Building Beds for Kids 2024-06-12 Learn More Load More Our Approach Partner, Plan, BUILD.

  • Frasier Meadows Master Plan | Pinkard Construction | Colorado

    Frasier Meadows Master Plan Boulder, CO, USA Frasier Meadows 355,000 Sq. Ft., 98 Units Senior Living, Recreation, Multi-Family Housing, Market Rate, Indoor Pool, Occupied, Ground Up, Renovation, Addition, Independent Living, Reahbilitation The Frasier Retirement Community’s $100 million Master Plan buildout consists of the construction of The Prairies, a 98-unit independent living building with a 110-space parking level on the lowest floor; a 6,000 sf Arts and Education building with classrooms, theater and a 300-seat multi-purpose room with stage; a 9,500 sf wellness center with a 25-meter exercise pool; and extensive renovations of the main floor of Frasier Central. All work is conducted on the occupied 530,000 sf, 14.5-acre complex. To meet Frasier’s demand for high quality and an uncompromising sensitivity to the needs of 400-plus seniors, Pinkard conducted an exhaustive preconstruction phase that focused on intensive collaboration with architect Hord Coplan Macht, Frasier, and numerous Frasier user groups. As a result of these efforts, the Pinkard/Frasier/Hord Coplan Macht collaboration produced “a perfect balance in site placement to achieve optimal aesthetics and natural views, respecting City of Boulder jurisdictional restrictions (including the 55-foot height limits), and FEMA flood-plain requirements, all the while allowing Frasier to enjoy tremendous flexibility for future growth. And we did this while balancing Frasier’s budgetary needs with the health, safety, and comfort of a demanding senior population.” During construction, Pinkard managed an unusually complex permitting process, which included 12 separate building permits as opposed to the customary one or two permits. "Retirement communities are sacred spaces. Pinkard and the subcontractors have been tremendously respectful of our sacred spaces." Senior Living Client "I've done maybe 50 projects in my career with 40 different contractors. Too many contractors are weak in preconstruction services. You guys are very, very strong in preconstruction services." Senior Living Client "When you don’t know what you’re doing (on your first construction project), you can feel very vulnerable. But it has been a great relationship, and everybody here has felt like they were heard."

  • Denver Zoo Tropical Discovery | Pinkard Construction | Colorado

    Denver Zoo Tropical Discovery Denver, Colorado, USA Denver Zoological Foundation 41,000 Sq. Ft. Public Projects, Recreation Tropical Discovery is a conservatory-type building that provides a real-life rainforest environment in a 1.5-acre tropical ecosystem. The Denver Zoo's exhibit and education center is home to 140 species of plants, 123 species of fish, and over 1200 animals representing over 200 species such as mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. An offshore coral reef, tropical marshes, temple ruins, cypress, and mangrove swamps have been created throughout the complex. With over 13 pools forming the pathway around the exhibit, 24 glass-fronted tanks, 3 waterfalls, and a jungle river, Pinkard faced very complex waterproofing challenges in installing four different waterproofing systems specified in the architect's construction documents. Intricate life support systems were installed that precisely regulate each exhibit environment for the vast array of both plant and animal species requiring maintenance of proper temperatures. The building is topped with two pyramid-shaped skylights providing natural light for almost 3/4 of the building. One of the skylights stands 45 feet above the ground. A temple inside nearly reaches the pyramid's peak. Although there are 22,000 square feet of display area, the total square footage, including service areas and holding pens, is nearly 41,000. The exterior involved Pinkard's execution of extensive architectural cast-in-place concrete work. With the construction of Tropical Discovery, the Denver Zoo is one of the few zoos in the country that has created natural habitats and biological ecosystems that blend the best of biology and botany. It is a fascinating and unique opportunity for visitors to experience the immense diversity of life in the tropics and to gain a greater appreciation for the fragile nature of this important ecosystem.

Our Preconstruction and operations team worked closely with alm2s during preconstruction to provide in-depth drawing review, providing constructability comments and other input to aid alm2s in creating well-detailed drawings and to confirm Green Design and sustainability assumptions. We communicated using design charettes and Procore Project Management software. Other innovative energy conservation technologies include thermal balanced windows, Energy Star rated lighting fixtures, and appliances. When completed, the building will meet the requirements of the 2009 International Building Code, the 2009 International Energy Code, and the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria. This project is funded primarily with Low Income Housing Tax Credits.

  • Pinkard Starts Thrive with 0% Budget Variance

    Pinkard Starts Thrive with 0% Budget Variance 2021-01-28 Share Share Pinkard Construction and Shopworks Architecture have completed preconstruction services on Denver Housing Authority’s (DHA) $42 million Thrive affordable housing complex. “Working with the precon team at Pinkard was a great experience – their knowledge and approach made for a truly collaborative process that helped add real value to the project,” said Kyle Mead, Project Manager at Shopworks Architecture. Working closely with the design team, Pinkard helped guide the budget to a 0% variance between design development documents and the GMP. With this phase complete, it is expected that construction will begin in late February. “With this zero percent variance, DHA was able to incorporate add-alternates to enhance Thrive’s value to future tenants and DHA,” said Leighton Neff, Senior Preconstruction Manager for Pinkard. “During preconstruction, Pinkard collaborated closely with DHA, the Shopworks team and our chosen MEP/fire and earthworks design-assist partners to refine the scope and pricing from the design development phase through GMP.” A part of DHA’s Sun Valley redevelopment plan, Thrive will be a ground-up, 7-story, mixed-income development with a mix of two-story townhomes and 1 – 5-bedroom multi-family units, totaling 135 units. Once this project is complete, it will mark Pinkard’s 101st multi-family project, with more than 50 of those being HUD-funded projects. Pinkard is an expert in affordable housing, providing preconstruction services and aiding in the funding acquisitions phase.
