Saunders No. Colorado Partner, Heath Construction, Chosen To Build Hospitality Component of Estes Park Wellness Center
ESTES PARK, Jan. 27, 2015 - Heath Construction, a premier regional contractor based in Fort Collins, has been selected to build the initial phase of Estes Park's new $30 million Wellness Center. Built adjacent to the iconic Stanley Hotel, the project represents a visionary, public-private partnership between the Estes Park Medical Center and the Grand Heritage Hotel Group, which owns the Stanley Hotel. The Wellness Center will provide a high-profile "wellness tourism" destination, more than 70 year-round jobs and millions in annual revenue for the town.
Economic growth and cultural development in Estes Park are familiar goals for Heath. For more than 20 years, Heath has built virtually all of the landmark projects that make Estes Park the Jewel of the Rockies today.
"We're proud to have partnered with Estes Park over all these years," said Randy DeMario, Heath president. "From the Riverwalk to Performance Park, Confluence Park, Weist Plaza, the Dannels Fire Station, the public library and many other projects, our work enriches the lives of thousands of people in this community every day."
Heath's leadership in local construction and its long commitment to Estes Park were both key reasons for the company's selection.
"Working with a local contractor is very important to us," said John Cullen, CEO of Grand Heritage Hotel Group. "This project is vitally important for Estes Park, and we believe it should be built by a construction partner who is as committed to Estes Park as we are. Heath offers a unique combination of outstanding experience, deep resources, and a sincere commitment to our community here in Northern Colorado."
The initial phase of construction will include a hospitality component of the Wellness Center Complex, a 33-room boutique hotel. The first phase of design and construction is expected to be complete in late 2015, while the overall Wellness Center Complex is slated to open in 2016.
