Modern Home Builder - Winter 2018 - 115
Burke Builders strives to utilize sustainable building techniques and materials on its
projects, as well as innovative cost-saving measures.
Burke Builders generally operates within 25 miles of the Boulder area. The company started a commercial project this year
that entails modifying an existing office building. It only has two
months to complete it.
It also won a contract to start work on an affordable housing
project to break ground in early 2018. At a cost of roughly $2 million, Burke Builders will gut and remodel three existing apartment
buildings in about four to five months.
The company anticipates it will grow its revenue between 20 to
25 percent by next year, which has been its consistent growth rate
for the past few years, Ward says.
Burke Builders attributes its success to a strong family-minded
philosophy that focuses on maintaining trust between its employees and clients. "Family and trust," Ward says. "That describes our
company. We're a family."
When it comes to its clients, Burke Builders also focuses on
maintaining a standard operating procedure. "That's the goal we
are constantly working for," Ward notes. "When we have a client
that has returned business to us, we want to maintain the same
processes so that client knows what to expect."
Burke Builders was founded in 2004 by Brady Burke. As the
company's managing director, Burke is involved in all projects and
oversees all of Burke Builders' operations. He has 19 years of experience in the construction industry and had led the company to
its current position in the Boulder market.
Ward has 13 years of construction industry experience. He
is responsible for project budgeting, the RFP/contract process,
change-orders and materials procurement. He has been with
Burke Builders for four years. )
