Gripstone Climbing Gym

Gripstone Climbing and Fitness is a state of the art climbing facility located in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado. The 21,000 SF building houses a fully fit gym, retail space, and 50 ft high climbing walls including an Olympic speed climbing route (the only one in the state). The owners of Gripstone entrusted Hammers to design and build this extremely tall building in the harsh climate of Colorado Springs near the Palmer Divide. To accommodate the sheer height of this building and to create enough open space for the climbing walls red iron metal was used to construct the building. Hammers coordinated the entire construction process to make sure every aspect of construction went as smoothly as possible. After construction, world class climbing course engineers came to install courses on the walls at Gripstone. This is a must see facility where lots of fun is to be had for beginners and expert climbers.

Hammers did an excellent job building my new distillery in Colorado Springs. I will definitely be using Hammers for all my future construction projects.

We purchased and occupied our Hammers built industrial building during the worst possible time- COVID restrictions, bad weather, parts delays and lengthy permit processing times. Hammers was with us all the way, their professional staff kept us informed, worked through the rough spots with the city and gave us a great building to grow our business in. We will look to Hammers first for our next building project.

Landscape Endeavors, Inc. has worked alongside Hammers Construction, Inc. throughout the lifetime of our company. Hammers has now built us two offices in the past 25 years and we have been beyond satisfied each time. Our current commercial space was completed during the pandemic, however, this never deterred Hammers Construction on completing this project in an appropriate timeframe. Hammers Construction has been diligent through the entire process from building to inspections and even checking in after we’ve already moved in to verify everything was efficient and up to our standards. Thank you for making this experience enjoyable and rewarding. We look forward to future endeavors with Hammers Construction, Inc.

The Falcon Fire District has utilized Hammers Construction as the design/builder on our last two new fire station projects. Being a Local Government there are several special rules that must be followed when completing new facility construction projects. The Hammers team is very familiar with these restrictions and the Hammers Brothers run a great design/build business, making the process smooth and easy.

I feel Hammers performed very well with the installation of the Pre-engineered building. Hammers Construction was very straight forward with pricing for additional work and was open to taking suggestions as well as giving suggestions on how the project could be successful. Hammers had the technical know-how to overcome all challenges and obstacles that we encountered on the job. Hammers was responsive on warranty items and didn’t rest until the job was right. With our experience I would recommend your company for future projects.
