The Saunders vision — break the mold of our industry, revolutionize the construction experience and build what matters — is driven by our reputation and relationships that have been built in the communities in which we work. Since Dick Saunders founded our organization over four decades ago, we continue to embody our core values — Care, Collaboration, Commitment and Community — in everything we do.

Established in 1972, Saunders Construction is an employee-owned corporation with over $6 billion in completed projects throughout the Rocky Mountain region. As one of the region’s top construction management firms, Saunders brings the resources, expertise, technology and community relationships to deliver solutions that meet our clients’ needs. Saunders excels in building office, municipal, educational, mixed-use, healthcare, residential, recreational, hospitality, mission critical, cultural and retail facilities. Our aim is to build what matters, regardless of project scope. We execute projects ranging from under $1 million to in excess of $200 million. We have been the recipient of more than 100 industry awards for construction excellence, employee achievements and community contributions.

We are committed to:

  • A Tenacious Pursuit of Growth and Diversification

  • Unleashing the Power of Innovation in Our Industry

  • Continuous Strengthening of Our Foundation

  • Holding Ourselves to a Higher Standard Through Economic, Environmental and Social Accountability.

  • The Colorado Health Foundation had a large vision for the new headquarters. We sought to build a facility that promotes the health of both employees and visitors and is a model for health-centered workplace design. Saunders delivered a project that was not only on time and within budget, but truly embraces our vision. Additionally, the Saunders team adopted our health-centered approach by promoting better food choices, hosting a step challenge and providing education to their employees and subcontractors. Saunders is truly a partner and not just another contractor.

  • Integrity is one of Saunders' biggest strengths. Overall, this is one of the most talented groups of project managers, superintendents and estimators of any contractor we work with.

  • Saunders has been our construction partner for the last five years. We continue to turn to them for a few simple reasons. They have great leadership throughout the organization, they work transparently and proactively to solve problems and they focus on quality in the same way we do. They’ve delivered on time and on budget throughout that time, and we will certainly continue to work with them for years to come.
