Gary Haydon

“It’s hard for me to imagine that it’s been 30 years,” said Haydon President Gary Haydon. “It certainly doesn’t seem like it now, but the most exciting thing is transitioning the company to the next generation and thinking about what they will do with it. I’m proud of what we’ve put together here.”

Haydon was named 2021 ENR Southwest Contractor of the Year. It was honored for its commitment to employees and culture, in addition to a strong portfolio of projects and record-breaking backlog. Haydon doubled its revenue over the past three years, from about $150 million in 2017 to nearly $300 million in 2020.

Haydon also announced a succession plan with the promotions of Executive Vice President | Partner Katie Haydon Perry and COO | Senior Vice President Matt Carpenter. Katie Haydon Perry is transitioning into the role of president of the company over the next two years.

Haydon’s recent projects include the $30 million Legacy Sports Complex Athletic Fields and Infrastructure in Mesa; the $100 million Hance Park revitalization in Phoenix; the $35 million Banner Aspera medical office building in Glendale; and the $22 million Lindsay Road & SR202L freeway traffic interchange in Gilbert.

Katie Haydon Perry

Haydon started out as SDB Building Division then changed its name in 1998. Besides Gary Haydon, its leadership includes Fritz Behrhorst, who joined the company in 1993, and is currently Vice President of Pre-Construction, Building Division and Partner; Les Keeble, Vice President of Risk Management/Partner, he joined Haydon in 1994; and Mark Eklund, Vice President/Heavy Civil/Partner, he joined Haydon in 1998 and launched the heavy civil division.

“Fritz, Mark, Les and I have worked hard for a lot of years to develop what we have today,” Gary Haydon said. “But we didn’t get here without all our people. It’s exciting to see Matt and Katie and their generation take it and go with it.”

As Haydon looks to the future it boasts a technology, H3D Solutions (a wholly-owned virtual construction subsidiary), that was created in 2019. Led by Jason Young, Director of Virtual Construction, H3D provides state-of-the-art modeling, coordination, and reality capture services across the construction spectrum.

We are committed to embracing improvement, celebrating successes and leading employees to be the best they can be. We are a family, we are Haydon.”

Coreslab Structures utilizing CarbonCure technology that lowers concrete’s carbon footprint while enhancing project quality

Coreslab Structures utilizing CarbonCure technology that lowers concrete’s carbon footprint while enhancing project quality

To date, across Coreslab’s plants in Arizona, Missouri, and Texas, CarbonCure’s technology has saved a total of 726 tons of CO₂

      

     PHOENIX, ARIZ.  (July 20, 2021) – Sustainability is increasingly a priority for architects, engineers and developers as they urgently seek solutions that reduce embodied carbon in the built environment, which is generated by the manufacturing of building materials and construction.

Coreslab Structures Inc., a premier producer of precast/prestressed concrete products, can utilize a carbon dioxide removal technology supplied by CarbonCure Technologies in its day-to-day operations in Arizona to provide low-carbon, precast concrete solutions to customers upon request. This ensures architects and engineers in Arizona can secure concrete solutions that deliver a significantly reduced carbon footprint without compromising strength or quality.

     “CarbonCure provides us one more weapon in our sustainability arsenal, allowing even more cement reduction in our already lean high-performance concrete mix designs,” said Phil Richardson, SE, Sales Manager with Coreslab. “This together with our low water to cement ratios and the reduction of mild steel reinforcing, replaced with prestressing technology, yields a green sustainable building solution.”

CarbonCure’s technology injects recycled carbon dioxide (CO₂) into precast concrete during mixing. Once injected, the CO₂ undergoes a process known as mineralization, where it chemically converts into a nano-mineral and becomes permanently embedded in the concrete. This mineralized CO₂ increases the strength of the concrete and enables the reduction of cement content in precast elements, further reducing the carbon footprint of the concrete.

CarbonCure’s partnership with Coreslab started at the company’s Austin, Texas, precast plant in August 2020. Based on the success of that partnership in Austin, Coreslab is now deploying the technology at its Arizona and Missouri locations.

To date, across Coreslab’s plants in Arizona, Missouri and Texas, CarbonCure’s technology has saved a total of 726 tons of CO₂. That’s equivalent to taking about 150 cars off the road for a full year or the amount of carbon sequestered across 800 acres of forests in a year.

“We are thrilled to see Coreslab expand its use of CarbonCure’s technology to Arizona, introducing sustainable precast concrete to the state,” said Robert Niven, CarbonCure CEO and Board Chair. “Using captured carbon dioxide to produce reliable, low-carbon products and meet the surging demand for green construction shows Coreslab’s commitment to sustainability.”

About Coreslab Structures

Since 1975, Coreslab Structures Inc., has emerged as a major supplier of structural, architectural and hollow core solutions to markets in Canada and the U.S. With 17 precast/prestressed concrete facilities across North America, Coreslab is a leader in construction innovation, structural design and sustainable practices, dedicated to providing top quality products and services. Its commitment to excellence, leading technical expertise and collaborative culture allows it to deliver award-winning, innovative solutions that meet the schedule and cost requirements of its valued customers. To learn more visit www.coreslab.com.

About CarbonCure

CarbonCure Technologies, a fast-growing, clean tech company based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, has developed an easy-to-adopt technology that enables concrete producers to use captured carbon dioxide to produce reliable, low-carbon concrete mixes and achieve market differentiation. Available from hundreds of concrete plants, more than one million truckloads of CarbonCure-based mixes have supplied a wide range of sustainable construction projects around the world. CarbonCure’s investors include Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Amazon, BDC Capital, Pangaea, Microsoft, 2150, Carbon Direct, GreenSoil Investments, Taronga Group, and Mitsubishi Corporation.

Fulton Homes purchases 187 acres, plans 675 lots on a county island in the bustling West Valley

Fulton Homes purchases 187 acres, plans 675 lots on a county island in the bustling West Valley

Land Advisors Organization’s Phoenix Homebuilder Team represents seller of former dairy farmland in $14.78M transaction

 

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA (July 16, 2021) – Land Advisors Organization’s Metro Phoenix office is pleased to announce that its Homebuilding Team represented the seller in the $14.78 million sale of 187 acres in the West Valley to Fulton Homes. The builder plans to develop its signature master-planned community on the parcel.

The site, located at NWC of Perryville and Indian School roads in Maricopa County, is planned for 675 lots. A dairy farm previously sat on the land, which is on a county island between the West Valley cities of Goodyear and Buckeye. Land Advisors Organization’s team of Greg Vogel, Wes Campbell, Bret Rinehart, Ben Heglie and Ryan Semro represented the seller.

“This was a complex deal with the land requiring rather extensive work, including rezoning, dairy clean-up and working through technical challenges involving utilities and other infrastructure associated its location in unincorporated Maricopa County,” said Vogel, CEO of Land Advisors Organization. “I commend Fulton Homes for their work and investment on the front-end of this deal, which is an unusual strategy. But, as the amount of available land in the area dwindles, particularly with regard to large parcels, we’re seeing more builders willing to get creative on solutions to fill their lot inventory pipelines.”

Tempe-based Fulton Homes will offer four product lines in the new master-planned community. The site plan also calls for an aquatic center and sports park. The builder has closed on numerous land deals in the West Valley in recent months, with plans to build 3,500 homes in one of Metro Phoenix’s fastest-growing markets.

Prescott’s Whispering Canyon master-planned community releases new 28-lot Phase Five

Prescott’s Whispering Canyon master-planned community releases new 28-lot Phase Five

Developer responds to market demands by opening community’s newest phase, offering custom parcels for development and “ready-to-build” new home lot packages. 

Prescott, Ariz. (June 30, 2021) – Whispering Canyon, a master-planned community nestled in the high desert of Prescott, Arizona, and surrounded by Prescott National Forest, announced it is releasing 28 new residential lots in Phase Five of the development.

The new phase offers full custom lots and 24 “ready-to-build” new home lot packages, in which the luxury lifestyle community’s most popular floorplans are designated to homesites based upon the lot and floorplan layout, topography and maximizing views from each parcel. Designating the parcels in advance assists buyers by streamlining construction and the decision-making process.

Following many consecutive months of high demand for new homes throughout the area, Whispering Canyon’s new Phase Five provides for the current demand by offering much-needed residential custom lots with prepared floorplan options ranging from 2,100 square feet with two bedrooms and a den to just over 2,550 square feet with three bedrooms, an office and 2.5 baths.

Each new home in the community includes a three-car garage and with the Phase Five release, there are also a limited number of detached RV garage packages available. Each homesite, including the custom parcels and the designated new lot home packages, is a minimum size of a half-acre and has been positioned to offer privacy and unequaled views, providing a sense of community while being immersed in the natural surroundings.

“With the growing interest by people relocating from elsewhere in Arizona and across the Western United States and Canada over the past year we put together a plan to address the need for ‘ready-to-build new custom home lots,” said Cole Johnson, developer of Whispering Canyon. By pre-selecting the best floorplan for each lot and its positioning on the parcel we are removing the uncertainty surrounding the most complicated decisions from the buying process and helping to accelerate the start of construction for our buyers, while still allowing them to personalize the home to suit their lifestyle.”

Located at Whispering Canyon Drive and Williamson Valley Road, Whispering Canyon’s new lot and home package sales are managed by Better Homes and Gardens, The Norkus Group’s Prescott team.

“By proactively addressing the most stressful challenges and simultaneously eliminating the unknowns that new home buyers face in the process of new construction the developer is making the buying process more streamlined and allowing our buyers to focus instead on the home’s design features, which they really care most about,” said Di Norkus, Whispering Canyon’s designated Realtor. “We are also thrilled to be able to offer several parcels with RV garages. These are responsive to what our buyers have been asking for and it’s wonderful that this community’s developer is listening and responding. We expect that this new inventory will not be on the market long!”

Recognized for craftsmanship, quality materials and state-of-the-art supervision, the new homes in Whispering Canyon offer numerous features, from the paver drive and architectural stone exterior to the outdoor living patios- all with amazing mountain views.

Each semi-custom home floorplan has a spacious great room and formal dining, showcased by the 10-foot ceilings, designed to capture natural light and unobstructed views. Designer tile flooring, carpet, and interior colors await buyer selection. The great room has direct access to a prodigious covered patio and is immediately adjacent to a kitchen that includes features such as: stainless appliances, buyer select cabinetry, granite counter island, pantry, and breakfast bar or nook. The master bedroom provides a welcome retreat with luxury en suite walk-in shower, double vanity, and walk-in closet. Flexible floorplans include second master suite, guest bedrooms, office and full bath plus powder room options.

Every homesite in Whispering Canyon has underground utilities, water and sewer.
