Highlands Ranch, CO — National developers The Keith Corporation and Sports Med Properties set out to create a revolutionary space in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, that combined state-of-the-art medical facilities and world-class athletic facilities. The occupants, D1 Sports Training and Panorama Orthopedics & Spine Center, needed facilities for athletic training and physical therapy services. Working with the developers and occupants, A M King designed and built a facility which includes 4,200 square feet of physical therapy space; 11,000 square feet of combined exercise, field training and locker room space; a 6,500-square-foot basketball court; and a 12,000-square-foot medical office building. The structure, which maintains the scale of a typical medical office building, incorporates a 30-foot-tall conventional steel frame with brick veneer exterior, sectional glass doors to create an open-air training environment, a mezzanine with storefront exterior and large windows to take advantage of Rocky Mountain views.
A M King Surpasses 1 Million Man-Hours Worked, No Lost time Accidents
November 20, 2014
Charlotte, N.C. – A M King has surpassed more than 1 million man-hours worked without a lost time accident. This is a significant milestone for any company in the Design-Build and construction industry.
“A M King has an impeccable safety record throughout its decade in business, and approaches every project with a focus on the health and safety of each individual,” A M King Vice President Dan Crist said. “A M King understands that safety is everyone’s responsibility and promotes that in our culture with all internal and external relationships.”
The safety process begins with project inception and initial contact with the project owner. It is promoted to all members of the team including subcontractors. A M King requires potential project contractors and partners to provide a written safety and health program specifically for each site.
“Each project provides a unique set of challenges and A M King identifies potential risks in order to adapt its safety and health program,” said Crist. “It’s so important to address site-specific issues and to have our partners aware of those as well.”
Prior to working on an A M King project site, all personnel attend a safety orientation, which addresses the site-specific safety information as well as all standard safety and health precautions. A M King then issues hard hat safety stickers to identify each individual who has completed the site safety orientation and is eligible to work on the site. All subcontractors hold weekly ‘Toolbox Meetings’ to reinforce rules and address potential safety concerns. Routine third-party OSHA-style audits ensure A M King’s exacting standards are followed.
“These requirements establish our high expectations with regards to safety,” Crist said. “We expect our project managers, subcontractors, foremen and supervisors to reinforce that commitment each day. By reaching a million man-hours worked without a lost time accident, we know that these standards are working.”
