On August 19, 1990, Brian J. Coe founded Coe Construction, Inc. in Loveland, Colorado. He started with just two employees and ran the business out of his home but very soon had the growth needed to lease office space. The first project was a Sbarro’s restaurant in California. Over the course of the first year, the company completed several restaurant projects which included repairs, tenant finishes and new buildings.
In 1992, Coe Construction, Inc. received their first office project – a small remodel for Federal Express in Boston, MA.
In 1993, Coe Construction, Inc. contracted with Lone Star to build 15 new stores per year over the next 5 years. The first Lone Star project was in Southgate, Michigan.
In 1994, Coe Construction, Inc. was awarded their first project located in Loveland. This project consisted of several tenant finishes located on the north side of the factory outlet stores. In 1995, the company received their first $1 Million project, also located in Loveland – a new 25,000 square foot retail building – located on the south side of the factory outlet stores. The company reached $10 Million in annual sales.
In 1996, the company completed construction & moved into their new office building in east Loveland. During 1998, the company contracted with Mazzio’s to build several new negotiated Zio’s Restaurant projects over the next 2 years. The company’s last contracted Lone Star project was completed and the company received their first hotel project – a new Quality Inn & Suites located in Louisville, Colorado.
In 1999, the company completed their first apartment project – remodels at Cheesman Apartments in Denver, Colorado. The company also purchased 8 new company trucks that year. In 2000, the need became apparent to add an estimating department. Also that year, the company contracted to complete their first bank project – Foothills Bank in Littleton, Colorado. With continuing to receive projects in Colorado, this year also marked the last out-of-state project for the company as well as reaching $20 Million in annual sales. Between 2001 and 2004, Coe Construction, Inc. continued with the same volumes & types of projects.
In 2005, after almost 15 years of the ever-increasing demands of running a successful business, Brian came to the decision to sell the company to allow him to spend more time with his family, pursue other interests & allow him time to enjoy life. On July 1, 2005, the company’s Senior Project Manager, Gregg Meisinger, purchased the company to become the current Owner/President.
Today the company averages $15-$20 Million in annual sales and 20-25 employees. The company maintains its strong focus to provide a high-quality level of service to our existing & new clients, partnering together on projects & striving to exceed expectations.
