Delta Construction, Casey Partners form new development alliance

FORT COLLINS – Two veterans of the Colorado real estate and construction industries have formed a strategic alliance that may challenge — and will certainly simplify — local standards for contract development.

Paul Hoffman, president of Delta Construction Inc. of Fort Collins and Laramie, and Mark Casey, president of Niwot-based Casey Partners LLC, both former employees of The Neenan Co. of Fort Collins, are building toward a transformation in the construction industry, Casey said.

“What I think is so exciting about it is our combining construction expertise with real estate expertise so we are able to provide a real seamless delivery system and bring more value to our clients,” he explained.

Hoffman, who brings extensive construction experience to the partnership, agreed: “We have some projects where he’s helping get finances pushed through. As contractors, that’s not really our job, but we need that coming together.”

Hoffman and Casey first met when they were working with The Neenan Co. — Hoffman as a project manager and Casey as vice president of sales and marketing. Hoffman left the company first and has been with Delta Construction, which ranked 11th on The Northern Colorado Business Report’s list of largest regional general contractors, for six years. Casey left Neenan much more recently in 1998 to start up his own business.

“Neenan believes there’s a lot out there for everyone. I proposed to him what we were thinking of doing, and he liked the idea but didn’t want to venture into that — he thought it would move them (The Neenan Co.) off the path they were on. So I made the difficult decision to move off on my own,” Casey said.

Hoffman and Casey are currently working together on development of the Cheyenne Technology Center in Cheyenne, where both hold a 25 percent interest in the project, with W. Stashak & Associates and Cheyenne LEADS accounting for the remaining 50 percent. The Tech Center may be the first major step in the Delta-Casey partnership’s development, but the idea was

already out there, Casey said.

“The idea was out there before that, but when Paul was invited to look at the opportunity in Cheyenne and called me up, it gelled,” he said.

Phase one of the Cheyenne Tech Center is complete, Hoffman reported, and is already three-fourths leased with 4,400 square feet still available. The project is now in the design stages of phase two.

With the new alliance with Delta Construction launched, and the potential for new Northern Colorado projects ballooning, Casey sees his territory of clients migrating northward: “I think now that I have an office located with Delta in Fort Collins, I will probably shift the balance a little more towards the Northern Front Range and away from Denver,” he said.
