Aspen has a reputation for having a “can do” approach. In the wealth of experience that Aspen brings to a project is a long and varied history of construction projects. Frankly, there’s nothing that we haven’t seen. Everything that can possibly go wrong in a project has challenged us at one time or another. Each time, Aspen has resolved the issue—quickly and creatively—while always watching the bottom line. Aspen takes on tough projects that have unique site challenges. Rock, extreme elevations, rough terrain, streams, and trees all provide a challenge to uncover great golf holes—yet Aspen does it!
Aspen has consistently exhibited its adaptability. In 2017, we successfully completed projects in 12 states across the country from Virginia to California – each with their own distinct architectural and natural features. We know the importance of making a golf course look like it’s always been there and understand the ecological importance of protecting the earth’s natural resources. Combining these two basic fundamental principles all while implementing a well thought out plan can sometimes be a balancing act, but it’s one that we pride ourselves on getting right.
Aspen is very comfortable being part of a team and has worked with the best in golf course architects, designers, and owners. Aspen’s management team, chosen carefully to ensure that work ethic, quality, safety, and client expectations are all of the highest priority, has close to 250 years of combined experience in the golf industry. The average Aspen employee has over 10 years experience working in golf course maintenance, irrigation, and construction. Our employees are respectful of the work site, the club membership and its representatives. In fact, we’re constantly getting compliments on the professional demeanor of our staff.
Depth of Management
Aspen has the capability to run four to five construction projects at the same time along with four to five separate irrigation projects. Aspen’s depth in management benefits an owner both in combined experience and for back-up purposes—a project is never dependent on a single person. Aspen also owns in excess of 95% of the equipment used on projects, so we are not dependent on rental deadlines. A typical project will have a construction superintendent on-site on a daily basis for the duration. One of our project managers stops by usually once a week and spends a few days or more if needed. Both Donnie Adkins and Ronnie Adkins visit on a regular basis and are always available to owners at anytime via phone or email.
