ESI has built, expanded, renovated or provided service and maintenance through our Express division for more than 50 Whole Foods projects throughout Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
ESI’s first project involved an extensive remodel and expansion of an old department store as part of a redevelopment shopping center project in Centennial, Colorado. The success of this project resulted in an invitation to ESI and our design partner to deliver a presentation on Integrated Project Delivery to the entire Whole Foods Project Management Team; the store was completed at the lowest price per square foot in the history of Whole Foods’ Rocky Mountain Division.
In Boise, ESI was selected to complete the first phase of an urban site that included a 45,600-square-foot Whole Foods Market grocery store, the first of its kind in Idaho. The project was completed three months ahead of schedule.
When Whole Foods moved their Rocky Mountain regional headquarters from Boulder to Denver, ESI completed a renovation of the new office. The original building was a brick structure from the late 1800s inside the larger brick shell that came up in the early 1900s. The 38,000-square-foot building has a beautiful brick-and-timber interior, with 9,000 square feet of common areas for employees.
