Lakewood’s AMA Construction recently completed a three-month renovation of the FirstBank Corporate Headquarters in Lakewood, Colo. The renovation took place on the first and second floors and included remodel work and the application of new finishes on interior portions of the building. AMA was also responsible for minor electrical and mechanical work, which included relocating light fixtures and amending switching.
As with most bank remodels that AMA has completed, work took place on a building that was currently occupied, requiring crews to work around employees, making themselves “non-existent” or working odd hours such as nights and weekends.
One of the other biggest challenges on the project was installation of technical door hardware to help meet the security requirements of the building. AMA installed 25 new fail-secure locksets that are electrified and had to be coordinated with the building’s security system and key readers.
AMA’s scheduling of each phase of the project for smooth transitions and early identification of issues led to an on‐time, on‐budget completion of the FirstBank HQ.
Named 2010 Small Business of the Year by the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, AMA Construction Inc. is a mid‐sized commercial general contractor doing work on office buildings, retail centers, medical buildings, tenant finish, commercial remodeling and site development.
