Saunders Construction, Inc., and Heath Construction Celebrate One Year of Partnership Success

Aug 4, 2015 | Uncategorized

July marked the one-year anniversary of the formation of Heath, LLC, a partnership formed between Saunders Construction, Inc., headquartered in Centennial, Colo., and Heath Construction, based out of Fort Collins, Colo. The partnership has seen substantial growth for both firms — not only in market sector opportunities, but also in client and employee satisfaction.

“Our approach with this partnership was to support the needs of the Northern Colorado market, as well as our current and future clients,” said Greg Schmidt, president and CEO of Saunders Construction. “In every way, this partnership has exceeded our expectations. The invaluable brand Heath has created in the Northern Colorado region, paired with Saunders’ horsepower, has allowed us to leverage shared resources to increase services and performance across the board.”

While the companies remain separate, Heath has integrated with Saunders’ software systems and adopted Saunders’ award-winning safety program — fostering quicker growth and streamlining core business functions. These calculated steps have played a role in doubling Heath’s work program in the past year and allowing the company to expand their workforce to effectively serve their owner’s needs.

“We are able to bring a level of service to our owners that would not have been possible without the partnership with Saunders,” said Randy DeMario, president of Heath Construction. “The market in Northern Colorado is booming and Heath has been able to grow along with it, thanks in part to the increased efficiency, broader knowledge and established relationships of this partnership.”

Employees from Saunders and Heath have seen firsthand the benefits an alliance such as this can bring to the industry, as well as to their careers. From collaborating on project pursuits to developing shared initiatives, employees from both firms — supported by a common culture — are able to achieve individual growth.

“We’re excited to be able to continue to build this platform and expand and leverage our combined expertise to provide our community with the absolute best services,” said Schmidt. “This is only the beginning.”
