Discover How We Help Facilities Grow for the Better
Johns Manville manufactures insulation, commercial roofing materials, fibers, and nonwovens for commercial, industrial, and residential applications. The Johns Manville laboratory in Denver reached out to Calahan Construction because business was booming. They wanted to expand their facility so they had space to install new equipment and optimize their processes, and they wanted to do it without limiting operational efficiency or reducing security measures.
For additional complexity, the new equipment they wanted to implement had unique requirements, which involved collaborating with several outside parties to complete the installation correctly. Expanding this space alone would require precise scheduling and mitigate significant operational downtime, and downtime was not a feasible option for them.

Johns Manville came to us with a problem and we were able to offer them a solution. In response to their problem, the Calahan Construction team developed a plan for them that involved several phases:
Phase 1 consisted of our design-build approach to understanding the client’s goals and vision for the project. This pre-construction phase is crucial because it ensures that everyone is on the same page and the client receives the result they want.
In Phase 2, we helped Johns Manville develop and maintain a tight construction and installation schedule. Thanks to our team’s hard work and client-focused mentality, we delivered the project on schedule, without affecting the workers’ ability to complete their work on time.
Lastly, in Phase 3, we partnered with all the necessary teams to help the client install their new equipment. Our ability to streamline scheduling with the other teams allowed the client to focus on their day-to-day operations.
Thanks to the help of Calahan Construction, the project was completed on time and on budget, which are both critical goals for any construction project. In addition, the security of Johns Manville was never compromised, and each piece of equipment was installed properly in accordance with the unique requirements.
Facility operational downtime was a significant concern to Johns Manville. We were able to help them grow their facility without jeopardizing their employees’ time or quality of work. As Johns Manville continues to grow in business, there’s no doubt that they will be choosing Calahan Construction again from their next expansion project.
