The Shops at Spectrum
In a world of outsourcing and subcontracting there are certain areas Spectrum will not compromise. We are one of the only Denver firms to have our own in-house custom millwork, steel fabrication, and historical restoration shops.
Spectrum offers a custom approach to construction unlike other general contractors. Adjoining the company office at 5135 E. 38th Ave. is the steel shop and steel yard. The four thousand square foot steel shop produces creative architectural and structural steel with access to a six thousand square foot yard for storage. Spectrum also has a ten thousand square foot millwork and historic preservation shop located just minutes away from the office. The millwork side specializes in custom millwork. While the historic preservation shop specializes in restoring or replicating historical woodwork including moldings, doors, windows and trims. With these shops Spectrum can produce many specialty items that can facilitate scheduling, sourcing, and budget requirements.
Spectrum is unique in the sense that we have at our disposal our own demolition, steel, millwork, and restoration shops. We find that these shops help facilitate schedule, sourcing, and budget requirements. For example, rather than ordering a custom cabinet from a cabinet company who may charge more than the budget allowance and has a lead time longer than the schedule allows, we can use the employees of the millwork shop to build the cabinet, stay on schedule, and more often than not meet or beat the budget allowance. However, we welcome competitive bidding against ourselves. We are not opposed to using a subcontractor when they can offer better pricing or scheduling than our own shops can.
