With our years of experience in school-related projects, we’re the people to contact to bring older facilities up to code or to design and build projects from the ground up. We look for cost savings from the beginning to make the most of tight funding constraints without sacrificing quality. McKenzie Commercial has the connections and know-how to recruit specialized subcontractors and crews to help us get the job done right and on time. We also make it a priority to plan and schedule work projects to avoid busy campus times as much as possible so students can safely enjoy and learn in top-notch facilities.


“It was an easy decision to hire McKenzie Commercial to oversee our $11 million bond renovation and seismic upgrade project on Mapleton High School and Mapleton Elementary School. Right from the start, Jim Mender understood our small, rural community and the need to preserve as much of the ‘history’ of our building and facility as possible. Jim and his crew had a wealth of construction knowledge that enabled our projects to be completed on time and under budget. Their ability to foresee issues and plan accordingly, as well as their ability to adjust quickly to unforeseen events, is commendable. Jim and his crew attended several Mapleton sporting events and even attended our Open House to celebrate the ‘reopening’ of our newly remodeled school. That kind of personal commitment is hard to find and it’s refreshing to see!”
