For 30 years, very few high-rises were built in downtown Edmonton, Alberta. But in recent years, the work of Graham Construction and client Langham Developments has marked the revitalization of the area, Graham Project Manager Joel Isaac says.

This renaissance included the construction of Fox One, a 29-story condominium tower that was completed last year. Now, the two firms are at work on Fox Two, “which is the sibling tower to Fox One,” he says, noting that the $48 million structure will stand 34 stories with 169 condo suites when finished next fall.

Adding to that environment will be the EVIVA Cherokee, a new luxury apartment tower that will provide residents with some amazing views of the city and Rocky Mountains as well as put them right in the heart of Denver’s most up-and-coming neighborhood. Bringing the vision of EVIVA Cherokee to life is The Beck Group, which has been building landmark projects for more than 100 years.

Transit-oriented development is one of the hottest trends in building today. Berman Enterprises believes it has the perfect mix of suburban living and regional access with its latest project, The Remy, a $165 million mixed-use development in Prince George’s Country, Md., just east of Washington, D.C.

The transit options available to residents are one of the most appealing aspects of the location. In addition to the New Carrollton train station, the site sits near the intersection of I-495 and the John Hanson Highway. “[Residents will] have access to all of D.C. plus the whole mid-Atlantic, East Coast corridor from this site,” Partner Kevin Berman says.

PlatinumPlatinum Exteriors’ niche is to rehab or build high-quality waterproof exteriors on new or existing construction on budget and on time.

By Russ Gager

Although general contractors and building owners do not expect the exteriors installed by Platinum Exteriors to be literally platinum, they find the company’s waterproofing capabilities and the appearance and quality of its jobs to be as good as gold.

General/Regional Manager Ryan Green estimates that approximately 70 percent of Platinum Exteriors’ business is with repeat customers. “Our company is about building relationships, not just doing a single project,” he says.

Drahota picDrahota’s success in the multifamily market and elsewhere stems from its strength in preconstruction services, it says.

By Chris Petersen

When Terry Drahota received his degree in finance from Colorado State University in the early 1970s, he realized he didn’t want to move to the East Coast and spend the rest of his life crunching numbers. Not wanting to leave the Rocky Mountains region he had grown up in, Drahota decided to stay in Colorado and took up carpentry to support himself.

Soon, Drahota began to build houses and founded the construction company that bears his name. Upon receiving a $1 million project to build at a ski resort in Breckenridge, Colo., the company had officially entered the big time.

Since 1973, Drahota has built hundreds of successful projects, many of them in the multifamily residential sector. Drahota says the company has between 800 and 1,000 apartment units under construction at any given time. In 2015, the company merged with Bryan Construction, and Drahota says the match made perfect sense because Bryan was looking to expand into multifamily and Drahota was looking to expand into Bryan’s area of expertise, commercial and government construction. Today, Drahota continues to uphold its reputation as one of Colorado’s most successful and sought-after multifamily contractors, but the added expertise of Bryan has allowed it to seek out projects on the commercial side, as well.
