Our History

BOOTS Construction Company (BOOTS) is a commercial General Contractor operating since 2001 based in Colorado with offices in Denver and Seattle.  We present a history of excellence and personal attention on more than 2,200 projects in the following markets: corporate interiors, legal, healthcare, lobbies and common areas, retail, restaurant, oil and gas, exterior renovations, structural modifications, ground-up and site development projects. Having completed over 2,200 projects since our founding by Jim Boots in 2001 we strive to build lasting relationships on every project we perform.

After earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Construction Management from Colorado State University, Jim Boots moved west to San Francisco in 1983 joining the Bechtel Company. Bechtel is one of the largest and most respected engineering, construction and project management companies in the world building mega projects globally. Jim was part of a Project Management Rotational Engineering program developed to create future company leaders. In 1988 Jim joined New England developer The Flatley Company based in Boston, MA and was able to quickly apply his design and construction knowledge to the business side of making projects work. Flatley’s build and hold investment strategy included more than 10,000,000 square feet of office, retail, and industrial space spread across several states.

Eager to return to Colorado after a decade away, Jim founded Construction Corporation of the Rockies (CCR) in Denver as a subsidiary of the Trammell Crow Company in 1993. Under Jim’s guidance, CCR saw steady market share growth in commercial construction projects for office, retail, medical, restaurant, education and site development sectors across Metro-Denver. CCR completed over $100M of fast-track construction in the first eight years of service and laid the foundation for an independent business.

Since 2001, BOOTS has specialized in commercial tenant improvement projects with high expectations, demanding schedules, and challenging logistics. Developers, owner’s representatives, architects and engineers, and facility managers have all come to rely on BOOTS Construction for exceptional quality in a smooth, hassle-free process. The firm has seen steady growth, even in the down turn, because of a solid customer base built on repeat business. Today BOOTS Construction is managed by a team of eight principals - Todd Thomford, Cody Sparrow, Chad Bartlett, Rick River, Tyler Jackson, Connor Boots, and Travis Danna with Jim at the helm. Together, along with our exceptional team of superintendents, field engineers, project managers, estimators, and office staff, we strive to simplify a complex process for our clients, while delivering great construction quality, value, and service.

“I wanted to thank you and your team for a wonderful job that they did with our space at 1700 Lincoln. The space is spectacular and our employees are loving it. Your PM did a fantastic job of keeping this project on track and meeting all deadlines. Your Superintendent did a great job of managing everything on site and your estimator did a great job costing it all out. It was a pleasure working with your team. Please use me as a reference in the future. I hope we get to work together again soon.”
