Learn how we help businesses expand their facilities and operations.
Calahan Construction offers plenty of services to Denver-area businesses to expand their operations and the facilities that house them. Keep reading to find out how we did this for RoadRunner HVAC in Aurora, Colorado.
RoadRunner HVAC provides residential HVAC services to the Denver area from their facilities in Aurora. Their business was growing, and they needed more room to provide their services to their customer base. Their architect contacted us about a construction project for a facility that was three times the size of their current building. The construction had to accommodate new utilities and site improvements within the facility, along with landscaping and a parking lot.
After their architect reached out to us, we put in a project bid. We then negotiated the project with RoadRunner HVAC’s owner and began creating their construction solution. We built them a masonry and steel building with a wooden roof. The building we created contained a fabrication shop and several equipment storage spaces along with conference rooms, offices, and restrooms. We adjusted our services and processes to deliver the exact type of building they needed to house their growing HVAC business.

When a business like RoadRunner HVAC comes to us for a masonry construction project, they have a few masonry options to choose from, including:
This option is the one RoadRunner HVAC chose. Block masonry projects use concrete masonry units (CMUs), also known as cinder blocks or breeze blocks, to create the building’s structure. They resist damage from natural causes, such as seismic activity and water damage. This option created a solid, safe space for RoadRunner HVAC to house their equipment and fabrication components.
This masonry option involves stacking layers of brick on top of each other and binding them together with mortar. They work well for solid, cavity, and veneer walls. Brick masonry buildings are fire resistant and structurally sound.
Stone masonry comes in two types: rubble and ashlar masonry. Rubble masonry involves undressed stones that aren’t shaped by tools, while ashlar masonry uses dressed stones and neatly fits them together. This type of masonry creates a solid and attractive structure.
Stucco masonry consists of sand, hydrated lime, Portland cement, and water. It gives buildings an extremely distinctive look. However, it has to be applied in several coats, and it takes a long time to dry.
Masonry construction creates solid commercial structures that resist severe weather and damage from fire and water. Each masonry type has its pros and cons, and some types suit commercial projects while others fit with residential ones. No matter which type of masonry option you choose, we have the resources and experience to build your commercial facility on time and within your budget. We’ll always be here for you whenever you need our masonry services.
