CD Specialty Contractors, one of the leading industrial commercial scaffolding and insulation contractors in the nation, provided the mechanical insulation and systems scaffolding for the Gaylord Hotel and Convention Center in Denver. CD erected more than 1.5 million pounds of scaffolding to provide construction workers and subcontractors complete access to the exterior of the building.
The hotel and convention center, which opens on December 18, 2018, offers more than 1.9 million square feet of hotel, retail, commercial and convention facilities; 1,500 hotel rooms; nine restaurants and bars; and a 75-foot-tall glass atrium facing the Rocky Mountains. The project was the largest hotel construction project in North America and created more than 10,000 construction jobs for Colorado. Upon completion, it is expected to attract more than 450,000 net new visitors to the state each year and it’s estimated economic impact is projected to be $7 billion.
Leading industrial and commercial insulation and scaffolding company expands team
CD Specialty Contractors, a Denver-based commercial and industrial insulation and scaffolding company, recently hired two new members to its team, Director of Safety Dan Self and Business Development Manager Earl McJunkin.
Self will oversee the safety department, ensuring that all projects remain accident and injury free while exceeding customer expectations in safety performance and regulatory compliance. Self has 30 years of mining and construction safety management experience. Prior to CD Specialty Contractors, Dan worked with industry leaders on multiple complex projects ranging from new construction, major demolition, to environmental cleanup.
“I look forward to becoming part of and assisting the CD Specialty Contractors team and strengthen its already prominent reputation as a leader in safety performance,” said Self.
McJunkin’s industry-wide expertise and customer service mentality brings a new layer of service to the company. McJunkin has more than 28 years of experience in the scaffolding industry. Prior to CD Specialty Contractors, he owned his own company and specialized in multiple industries, including pulp and paper, refining and power.
“I’m excited to join a team that holds the same values for safety and service as I do,” said McJunkin. “I look forward to learning from our team members along with growing with the entire company,” he continued.
Darren Franz, chief operating officer of CD Specialty Contractors said, “Dan and Earl’s wealth of experience and industry knowledge has already made them key additions to CD Specialty Contractors. Our increase in projects and partnerships led us to look for additional team members who would fit with our commitment to service and safety, and its very fortunate that we were able to bring on two seasoned professionals who are passionate and dedicated to moving the industry forward.”
