Raise a glass – it’s time to cheers to another year. With 2019 almost in the rearview, we thought we’d take a moment to reflect back on all the excitement ECI has seen throughout the past 12 months. Without further ado, let’s delve into the top 19 things that have happened in 2019:
Our team restored the final stretch – a whopping 8,525 feet – of the Big Thompson River that was affected by the 2013 flood.
In 2005, ECI constructed the first phase of Loveland Sports Park, and 14 years later we finished phase two to accommodate the park’s popularity.
Renovations to this 50-acre athletic complex included a permanent restroom and concession building, shade structures, additional parking and much more.
As the first whitewater park in northern Colorado, this project was truly one of a kind and featured boating features for kayaking and tubing, a pedestrian bridge, children’s play area, and new paved trails and walkways.
Our largest project to date! Our team conducted site improvements for nine public schools that consisted of replacing grass sports fields with synthetic turf and the installation of post-tension tennis and track facilities.
6. Windy Saddle Trailhead
Our team made new improvements to this trailhead in Golden!
We are reshaping the channel of Cherry Creek between University Boulevard and N. Downing Street by removing sediment deposits, adding wetland benches, and adding natural meanders.
A new housing development just wouldn’t be complete without beautiful neighborhood parks and green spaces! We’ve got the playgrounds, gardens, orchards and trails covered.
Our team is retrofitting an existing drainageway and pond to improve conveyance and capacity, while enhancing both the adjacent neighborhood trails and park systems.
As the Town of Timnath grows, their park needs to grow too! ECI is looking forward to building a natural style of playground, a large open play field, additional parking areas, a new dog park, and a custom restroom building during phase two.
Get ready for Severance town festivals! The new park will include 26 acres of earthwork, a large sod field for town events, and baseball and softball fields.
This project has a little bit of everything – we’re creating a detention pond to help with stormwater and flooding, as well as an open space with trails, landscaping and irrigation, access roads and more.
Our project scope will generally include the amenity plazas, nature play components, and associated boulder work.
14. MS Walk
Our team of ECI employees, family members and friends all joined together to walk for a cure for multiple sclerosis in May.
15. ECI Annual Golf Tournament
This June, we teed off for a good cause at Pelican Lakes in Windsor. Our annual golf tournament raised $15,000 for the Aims Foundation. Stay tuned for details on our 2020 tournament on June 18!
16. Aims Foundation
Speaking of the Aims Foundation, our team has proudly partnered with the scholarship branch of Aims Community College through numerous events to provide opportunity for future industry workers.
17. Greenway Foundation
ECI has been a longtime supporter of the Greenway Foundation and truly values their efforts to preserve the South Platte River. Our team had a great time at their events throughout the year, such as the South Platte Stewardship Day and Reception on the River!
18. BizWest Women of Distinction Award: Selina Cook
We always knew she was fantastic, but now it’s official! Our very own Selina Cook was honored as a BizWest Woman of Distinction nominee in the Real Estate, Construction and Development category.
19. BizWest Bravo! Entrepreneur Honoree: Brian Peterson
Special congratulations to our founder, Brian Peterson, for receiving BizWest’s Bravo! Entrepreneur Award. His vision, expertise and dedication is why our company stands today.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our success in 2019, and we look forward to the excitement coming down the pipeline in 2020!
