December 16, 2011 – Wheat Ridge, Colorado – With a symbolic scoop of a shovel, construction is officially underway in Wheat Ridge on the new headquarters and warehouse of J&K Roofing.  Designed by JVB-Arch, construction of the two-story, 12,000-square foot  building is the responsibility of The Augusta Group.

In a ground-breaking ceremony, J&K leadership, along with The Augusta Group and City of Wheat Ridge officials, praised the new project which is expected to take five months with an anticipated completion in May 2012.   City of Wheat Ridge Economic Development Division Manager Steve Art and City Council member Joyce Jay were on hand to recognize the beneficial economic and labor impact the addition of J&K Roofing will bring to the area.  Mr. Art commented on the City’s newest commercial resident, “It’s businesses like J&K Roofing that are driving the economy.”

Relocating from their current address in Golden, J&K Roofing’s new headquarters and warehouse will be located at 13000 West 43rd Drive in Wheat Ridge.   As one of the top 100 roofing companies in the U.S., J&K needed a home that would allow it to scale its operations with its ever-growing demand to respond to weather events in the state. J&K Roofing selected Golden-based The Augusta Group to lead the design and construction process.   The new facility has three times the warehouse and four times the office space as their current building and will have a secured yard for material storage and warehouse equipment that the existing facility doesn’t.  Additional features include natural light in all the office and warehouse areas, efficient lighting and mechanical systems to lower the cost to operate, and an exterior that will withstand the daily use as a warehouse.

“We understand J&K’s vision as well as the desire to better address roofing needs when weather events occur; which we all know that they frequently do here in Colorado.  That’s why The Augusta Group is building a facility that will allow them to immediately respond to the needs of the Denver Metro Area and scale their business for the foreseeable future,” said Jim Ferguson, Co-Owner of The Augusta Group.

Thirty employees are initially expected to move into the new building in Wheat Ridge when construction is complete in May 2012.
