When I first began working at the window shop. Ron Sihrer and the Torres Brothers all took turns teaching me each different process in the window restoration scope and traded off showing me how to use the equipment and drive a lift etc. They all felt (and still feel) like big brothers showing the new kid the ropes. I have always really appreciated the time that they took to help me out.

The Shops at Spectrum

In a world of outsourcing and subcontracting there are certain areas Spectrum will not compromise. We are one of the only Denver firms to have our own in-house custom millwork, steel fabrication, and historical restoration shops.

Spectrum offers a custom approach to construction unlike other general contractors. Adjoining the company office at 5135 E. 38th Ave. is a millwork shop, steel shop and steel yard.  The five thousand square foot millwork shop specializes in custom millwork.  The four thousand square foot steel shop produces creative architectural and structural steel with access to a six thousand square foot yard for storage.  Spectrum also has a ten thousand square foot historic preservation shop located just minutes away from the office.  This shop specializes in restoring or replicating historical woodwork including moldings, doors, windows and trims.  With these shops Spectrum can produce many specialty items that can facilitate scheduling, sourcing, and budget requirements.

Spectrum is unique in the sense that we have at our disposal our own millwork, steel and restoration shops.  We find that these shops help facilitate schedule, sourcing, and budget requirements.  For example,  rather than ordering a custom cabinet from a cabinet company who may charge more than the budget allowance and has a lead time longer than the schedule allows, we can use the employees of the millwork shop to build the cabinet, stay on schedule, and more often than not meet or beat the budget allowance.  However, we welcome competitive bidding against ourselves.  We are not opposed to using a subcontractor when they can offer better pricing or scheduling than our own shops can.
