EVCC Wins Second Award

Estes Valley Recreation and Park District (EVRPD), the provider of numerous recreational opportunities in Estes Valley, is excited to announce another award for quality construction of the Estes Valley Community Center.

On Friday, October 19, 2018, Adolfson & Peterson Construction received an Award of Merit from the Rocky Mountain Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) in the category of institutional projects between $10 and $25 million at the Excellence in Construction awards ceremony.

“It is exciting to see the community center receive a variety of accolades—from the recreation industry to the construction industry,” said Tom Carosello, Executive Director for Estes Valley Recreation and Park District. “It reinforces what most of us already know—that we have a fine facility for our little mountain town.”

According to ABC’s website, the Excellence in Construction awards program is the industry’s leading competition that honors both general and specialty contractors for innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects. The award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. Each project is judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.

During the awards ceremony, the challenges presented by wildlife as the building went up, among other features, was noted as a unique aspect throughout construction. Apparently, the elk can share in the award as well.

The team for the construction of the Estes Valley Community Center included: Ohlson Lavoie Collaborative for architecture, Adolfson & Peterson for general contractor, and RLH Engineering as the owner’s representative to oversee project development. There were also numerous subcontractors on the project, many of which also received awards at the same award ceremony.

The 70,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Estes Valley Community Center is a comprehensive, multigenerational destination for residents and visitors to Estes Park. District staff kept the local Estes Valley population of approximately 11,000 people in mind when designing the building but knew that the four million plus visitors that pass-through Estes Park every year would benefit from its services as well. The facility is especially beneficial for staying active on cold, windy or rainy days and for families looking for something to do with kids in Estes Park.
