History of Blue Ridge Construction

Blue Ridge Construction, Inc. has been in operations since 1986. The current controlling owner has been with the company since 1997. Based in Colorado Springs, Blue Ridge specializes in medium sized public works projects mainly focused in their home town. The company has developed concrete paving, concrete rehabilitation, excavation, pipe-laying/utility installation, bridges, structures, earthwork, proper execution and management as their areas of expertise.

Within the last 5 years, Blue Ridge has completed some high profile projects that included innovative systems. The Fillmore Corridor Improvements was completed successfully in a high traffic demand situation. Blue Ridge worked closely with the owner, inspectors, subcontractors, and land owners to provide an excellent final product to the City of Colorado Springs.

Other high profile projects included Vincent Road Phase 1 and 2 with a new underground waterline and roadways. Blue Ridge is currently working on projects dedicated with the 2C taxpayer approved monies. This includes repairing concrete along the roadways before the road is overlayed with new asphalt.

Our largest project to date is currently under construction: John Venezia Park. This park will include 3 free standing buildings, a multiuse field, a sprayground, a playground, a pavilion area, and multiple parking areas.
