JE Dunn, one of America’s leading general contractors, established its Colorado presence in 1983, and ultimately selected Denver to be the home for its West Region headquarters. The employee-owned company now has more than 400 regional employees with 275 in Colorado alone. JE Dunn provides preconstruction and construction services with a specific focus on corporate workplace environments, mixed-use and TOD developments, science and technology, advanced manufacturing, mission critical, healthcare, and higher education. 

Notable Colorado clients/projects include: Broadcom’s silicon chip manufacturing facilities, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Energy Systems Integration Facility, Continuum’s Belmar mixed-use development, Lincoln Property Company’s Colorado Center TOD project, the Rocky Mountain Institute’s corporate headquarters, Balfour’s senior living community at Denver’s Riverfront Park, the Swedish Medical Center vertical expansion, UCHealth’s Medical Center of the Rockies, and CU Boulder’s Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building.  

Said Rodd Merchant, West Region President, “In the short period of time that I have served on the Metro Denver EDC Executive Committee, I have found the organization’s value to our company to exceed all our expectations. From the relationships I have already made with our region’s top business leaders to the in-depth policy debates on the major issues facing our region and state, the Metro Denver EDC has no peer. Simply put, our involvement with the Metro Denver EDC is meaningful because we know that the partnerships they foster positively impact the way we all live and work.”
