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.

Let's discuss your project.

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.

Frontier Bank had the opportunity to work with Hammers Construction on a 28,000 SF tenant improvement on an empty shell in Colorado Springs in September 2012. We found Hammers Construction to be very competitive in their pricing and felt that for the amount paid, the outcome was very nice. We would use Hammers Construction in the future should any other projects arise.

I recently contracted Hammers Construction for our new office building on Woodmen Rd. This is the second building they have built for me. Steve, Dave, Patty and my project manager, Joe Butler, all did an excellent job from A to Z. Their honesty, integrity and straight forward approach to the design/build concept is seamless and efficient. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a reputable contractor. Even 15 years after my first building was done, they still help me with any needs that arise. That’s great service!

Dear Steve, Just a note to let you know what a wonderful job your concrete guys did on our Marine Corps Monument Foundation and surrounding walkways! It is hard to find workers so dedicated to doing a good job! They paid attention to every detail and didn’t leave the job until the day’s work was done. I gave them my personal thanks, please thank them again on my behalf.
