Congrats to our Top Company 2016 winner: Weifield Group
The company won in the "Construction" category
This year’s Top Company winners and finalists represent large and small, old and new, high-tech and high-touch businesses and organizations in 11 industry categories. Like Colorado itself, these enterprises have undergone changes, endured tumultuous economic times, and overcome various hurdles to achieve distinction in their respective fields.
To be eligible for Top Company consideration, companies must be based in Colorado or have a significant presence in the state. Deloitte, a longtime program sponsor, selects up to three finalists per industry category from applications submitted online at cobizmag.com. A panel made up of ColoradoBiz magazine’s editorial board and representatives from the business community then selects the winners based on financial performance or other relevant metric, achievement in one or more operational aspect of their business, and community involvement.
Read on to learn about our 29th annual Top Company Awards winners and finalists in the "Construction/Contracting/Real Estate" category.
CONSTRUCTION/CONTRACTING/ REAL ESTATE
Weifield Group Contracting
Weifield Group Contracting offers cutting-edge electrical construction, combining professional expertise with leading technology. The Denver-based company has four main divisions: service and maintenance, special projects, construction, industrial/water and wastewater.
Weifield Group Contracting has more than 250 employees, and has a goal of adding another 500 in the next three to five years. Weifield Group works with two Denver rehab and therapeutic communities, Stout Street Foundation program and Peer One. Graduates of the programs who have demonstrated a willingness to learn can receive training and become electricians at Weifield via its apprenticeship program. The company employs 40 electricians from these programs.
Training is so important that it is among the employee perks, in the form of a paid four-year apprenticeship program, paid LEED certification, OSHA training, CPR/First Aid certification, and field safety training. The company also trains leaders, and all journeymen (mid-level electricians) receive continuing-education courses at Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) and local community colleges. To maintain its competitive edge, Weifield uses industry-leading technologies including Building Information Modeling (BIM), onscreen estimating, Trimble robotic workstations, Blue Beam technologies, and more.
“It used to be tape measure and string,” says Seth Anderson, CEO of Weifield Group. “The technology has come a long way.”
