Aspen has a reputation for having a “can do” approach. In the wealth of experience that Aspen brings to a project is a long and varied history of construction projects. Frankly, there’s nothing that we haven’t seen. Everything that can possibly go wrong in a project has challenged us at one time or another. Each time, Aspen has resolved the issue—quickly and creatively—while always watching the bottom line. Aspen takes on tough projects that have unique site challenges. Rock, extreme elevations, rough terrain, streams, and trees all provide a challenge to uncover great golf holes—yet Aspen does it!
Our crews have worked in all kinds of challenging weather conditions—snow, ice, sleet, rain, freezing temperatures—and have creatively found the right solution to keep a project moving forward. Aspen also has extensive experience in erosion and sediment control in protected environmental areas, including the Chesapeake Bay watershed, sensitive areas on the Carolina’s coastlines and Tier II trout streams in Maryland.
Aspen is very comfortable being part of a team and has worked with the best in golf course architects, designers, and owners. Aspen’s management team, chosen carefully to ensure that work ethic, quality, safety, and client expectations are all of the highest priority, has close to 250 years of combined experience in the golf industry. The average Aspen employee has over 10 years experience working in golf course maintenance, irrigation, and construction. Our employees are respectful of the work site, the club membership and its representatives. In fact, we’re constantly getting compliments on the professional demeanor of our staff.
Aspen has the capability to run four to five construction projects at the same time along with four to five separate irrigation projects. Aspen’s depth in management benefits an owner both in combined experience and for back-up purposes—a project is never dependent on a single person. Aspen also owns in excess of 95% of the equipment used on projects, so we are not dependent on rental deadlines. A typical project will have a construction superintendent on-site on a daily basis for the duration. One of our project managers stops by usually once a week and spends a few days or more if needed. Both Donnie Adkins and Ronnie Adkins visit on a regular basis and are always available to owners at anytime via phone or email.
