2017 & 2018 ASA of Colorado General Contractor of the Year

Zeppelin Development
The entire Vertix team has been a pleasure to work with,” said Kyle Zeppelin of Zeppelin Development. “The Vertix company culture and work-style complements and enhances our work. A sane, predictable and fun business relationship is hard to find in Denver’s construction market. Our development company has a number of projects under construction, and Vertix has set a high mark for what’s possible. We’re looking forward to working with them on more projects in the future.
- Kyle Zeppelin, Zeppelin Development


Swedish Medical Center
Brady (McQuinn) is one of the nicest, most polite superintendent’s that I’ve had the pleasure working with in my years in the industry. He is able to get the work completed on time and on budget. As we all know, renovation work goes hand in hand with surprises and challenges. Brady does a fantastic job of leading the team to a workable solution for everyone. Healthcare work is some of the most challenging of renovation work as well as the highest risk. Brady takes whatever challenges arise, be it working hours or something that will not fit as planned, in stride and brings the team across the finish line to a solution.
- Erin Petersen, Swedish Medical Center


University of Colorado Boulder
Ted was a pivotal leader on the team in helping to keep the project on target and on budget … Problems were discussed and resolved quickly and responsively and even under taxing circumstances that seemed insurmountable, Ted was always positive, honest, and solution oriented to keep everything continually flowing.
- Denise Thomas, University of Colorado Boulder


Community College of Denver
During Mr. Lough’s time at the College, he was able to develop many great relationships with the College staff members. Mr. Lough was extremely easy to work with, communicated exceptionally well and was always willing to do whatever it took to meet the needs of the staff and students.
- Duane Risse, Community College of Denver


Denver Museum of Nature and Science
In my opinion, true collaboration on the project was reached when our collections managers trusted Tom and his leadership in any collections area of the Museum. For those that might not know, unlimited access to these types of spaces does not come easily and without a high level of trust. Tom earned every ounce of respect and trust from our Research and Collections Division.
- Jeff Joplin, Denver Museum of Nature and Science


Development Solutions Group
When Ryan commits to lead your project team, you truly get him from start to finish and beyond. He is an extremely active manager from the preconstruction phase, throughout construction and even remains the point-person to respond to any warranty items well after the warranty period is over. He is one of those rare people who takes his job personally and really cares about the product his team produces.
- Andrew Shearer, Development Solutions Group


Oz Architecture
Jarrod exceeded all of our expectations and demands. Due to his tremendous work, the client specifically requested that Jarrod be involved in future construction projects.
- Jeff Swanson, Oz Architecture


University Corporation for Atmospheric Research
I always felt that Ryan had the project and owner’s best interest in mind. He was very flexible in dealing with multiple scope changes we requested and always tried to advise us on multiple solutions. He managed our money well and communicated throughout the project where we stood and our options.
- Marion Hammond, University Corporation for Atmospheric Research


Aims Community College
Mr. Laszlo built a true team atmosphere which helped to allow the design to meet all of our goals while maintaining the project budget.
- Mike Millsapps, Aims Community College


CPI Group
Ted brings a positive attitude to the project, even in the most trying situations. He can always be relied upon to roll up his sleeves and work with users, designers, and subcontractors to come up with creative and cost effective solutions. He is a great team player, putting our needs as a client ahead of his own.
- Scott McDaniel, CPI Group


Boulder Associates
I have sincerely enjoyed working with Ryan on several projects over the past 10 years. I believe there is a great deal of passion behind every project he takes on; he is always willing to find solutions and adapt to the requests of his design team and clients to achieve the desired outcome. His superior level of quality, preparedness, and dependable schedules combine to create successful projects that continuously finish on time. Even more important, I know that when it is time to walk the punchlist, Vertix has already held their pre-punch and the project is ready, making it an efficient use of everyone’s time. The Vertix team is reliable and works seamlessly together making the construction process an enjoyable experience.
