GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – D.M. Neuman Construction has been awarded the National Association of Home Builder’s project of the year award for work on the Canyon Club Event Center at Glenwood Canyon Resort.

The 30-year-old Glenwood Springs general contracting company was founded by Duane Neuman, and is now led by his son Jason Neuman.

This is the top award from the nation’s largest trade association for commercial and residential construction businesses. D.M. Neuman earned the award for its outstanding achievement in design, energy efficiency, market appeal, aesthetics and overall project success.

The Canyon Club Event Center, in No Name, boasts a 2,000-square-foot grand room, spacious meeting rooms, indoor and outdoor seating, a banquet kitchen, an outdoor barbecue grill, a full service bar and restroom facilities.

On the top floor of the building are two apartment suites with spectacular views of Glenwood Canyon, offering convenient accommodations for groups or families holding special events at the facility.

In addition, the No Name Bar and Grill has a 4,000-square-foot deck looking out on the No Name Arch and the Colorado River.

“The Canyon Club Event Center is something that we are very proud of. Our guests now have a beautifully designed building in which to enjoy the spectacular Glenwood Canyon and Colorado River while they eat lunch or relax after rafting,” said Kevin Schneider, owner of Glenwood Canyon Resort.

“It was a pleasure to work with Jason Neuman and his staff as this building came together. We couldn’t be happier with the final product,” Schneider added.

D.M. Neuman Construction has several projects lined up for this summer.

One is a certified green model home using technologies designed to reduce energy costs. The company is also working with architects and owners on several residential and commercial projects, including a large automotive dealership in Glenwood Springs.

“We believe the market for a new home is as attainable, if not more so than three years ago, said Jason Neuman. “We’re going to replace the ‘loss of value’ mindset with the fact that low lot prices, interest rates and construction costs make building viable now.”
