To the ICM Team,
2021 has proven to be a major year of change and growth for ICM, and we have our dedicated, talented employees to thank for yet another successful year. Despite the ongoing pandemic, material price volatility and uncertain project starts, ICM accepted every challenge that came our way and delivered exceptional service to all our clients.
Over the course of the year, we were awarded 471 projects, many of which were highlighted externally as part of our effort to promote our work to current and prospective clients, and to the broader construction community. This included the following opportunities:
ICM’s high safety and quality control standards led to an article by Josh Salazar in Construction Business Owner and articles by Dave Montoya and Sean Miller in ENR Mountain States and Construction Executive.
ICM’s work moving the Water Carriers statue to and from the Loveland Visitors Center was profiled by the Loveland Reporter-Herald.
Jeff Chandler and Tracy Perkins from Nunn Construction were interviewed by La Junta Tribune-Democrat and Rocky Mountain Construction for their work on the Manzanola school project, the latter of which became the August cover story.
ICM’s exceptional work on the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (PCAPP) was given an ENR Regional Best Project Award in the highly competitive government/public buildings category and was featured in Constructor Magazine, which is the national AGC publication sent to 28,000 members.
ICM’s recommendations for ways contractors can overcome material price volatility and supply chain issues was featured in Conexpo-Con/Agg and Modern Contractor Solutions, and it will also be featured in the 13 regional publications that make up the Associated Construction Publications.
ICM was awarded a Top Company Award from ColoradoBiz in the manufacturing category, a first for the company.
None of this would be possible without each and every one of our 180 employees, which represents 32 more people than we had in 2020. This includes nine iron workers added from Ridge Erection at the beginning of the year, and 11 employees from Atlas Industrial. In addition to those who helped us promote our story, we’d also like to give a shout out to Keeton PR, Colorado Advertising Specialties, Associated General Contractors of Colorado, Tepa LLC., Perini Management Services, Miller Coors, Varco-Pruden, Colorado Thought Leaders Forum and the numerous clients, vendors, and trade partners.
ICM has always been a strong contributor to our community, and 2021 was no exception. We continued to support the United Way of Pueblo County, EPIC - ‘Executives Partnering to Invest in Children,’ Casa of Pueblo, the Pueblo Child Advocacy Center, Greater Pueblo Chamber, Catholic Charities, Steel Works Center of The West, Heritage Christian Center, Boys and Girls Club of Denver, Let Your Light Shine, in addition to working closely with CSU Pueblo’s Civil Engineering Technology program to help advance the next generation of construction leaders.
Thank you again for all your efforts this year, and we hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year! Cheers to an even better 2022.
