Colorado Springs rose to prominence during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush of the mid-1800’s and was the capital of the Colorado Territory until it was moved to Denver in 1862. What started as a mining town 60 miles south of Denver continued to grow, annexing adjacent land and townships until, after over 150 years, it is the most extensive municipality in Colorado. Many hands have contributed to building up this sprawling city, from notable historical figures and prominent national institutions, to those who construct the physical space of the built environment like commercial concrete contractors in Colorado Springs. Each has played their part in establishing “The Springs” as a bustling fixture of the Front Range.
A Unique History
In its history, Colorado Springs has attracted distinctive individuals and organizations for various reasons, and often those reasons were connected to the unique features of the area. For example, at the turn of the 20th century, Nikola Tesla brought his laboratory the Tesla Experimental Station to Colorado Springs to further his research in electricity because it is one of the most active lightning strike areas in the United States. In 1950, due to the city’s geographic location and geologic features, its previously-decommissioned WWII air force bases were revived and named Cold War headquarters for Air Defense Command, and NORAD made its home in Colorado Springs. In more recent history, the city became the site of the United States Olympic Training Center, allowing athletes from across the nation to train in the high altitude conditions of the Front Range.
Behind each of those notable additions to the history and community of Colorado Springs and supporting the city’s continued growth, are those who work to build the new structures needed to house the businesses and organizations that migrate there, as well as the other commercial and residential space and infrastructure needed to sustain an expanding city. Developers, architects, construction companies, and contractors add to the cityscape each year, with concrete laying the foundation for new projects across the city.
