Jones and Palmer Halls Ribbon Cutting

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating the ribbon cutting for TWO completed projects on one very special campus. The Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind provides specialized education services and we are honored to have a role in their growing campus. At more than 12,000 SF, Jones Hall houses the Colorado Instructional Materials Center as well as VIP rooms for campus guests and a low vision clinic. In addition, a full renovation of the 15,000+ SF Palmer Hall was completed and hosts CSDB's "Bridges to Life" program which serves students between the ages of 18 and 21 and seeks to bridge the gap between high school and the real world, emphasizing education, employment, and independence. Congratulations CSDB!

Rick Taves Returns!

After two long years, we are ecstatic to say that one of our in-house construction administrators, Rick Taves, has returned! Rick and his wife have been on a two-year sabbatical working with Engineering Ministries International in Kampala, Uganda managing the construction of the "Music for Life" secondary school.
