508 E Cooper

Downtown Aspen hasn’t seemed to change for years. Or has it? With unique projects such as 508 E Cooper you would never know the entire building has been demolished and rebuilt. PCL, one of the largest international contractors, has literally taken this building down brick by brick. The rebuild includes a completely modern design with an “old building” look. But unlike the previous structure, this building will be able to “Live and Breathe” for decades to come. With less than 2” to the adjacent building, a color matched compression seal will be installed by Summit Sealants to accept movement and seal out the harsh high altitude conditions. We will also be sealing every dissimilar material on the exterior all the way down to smallest detail to ensure proper movement with minimal grout cracking is achieved for years to come.

With an architectural “100 year old”  look, it’s very exciting to provide such a modern, LEED certified building that will be efficient for another 100 years to come!!!


It’s mud season in the high country!

Ski slopes are closed and the summer crowds are still a ways off. What does this mean? Maintenance madness at the resorts!! Current project include two beautiful Hyatt facilities. The Park Hyatt in Avon, CO (photo), where we are near completion of an extensive cut out and reseal of the exterior facade, which has been phased over the past two seasons.

In Aspen, CO we have been spoiled by a balcony repair/re-coating project at the Hyatt Grand. It is a luxurious ski in / ski out resort in downtown Aspen.

~Enjoy the mud and the “quiet” time in the mountains~
