Denver, CO – Denver’s first construction co-working community is hosting a Grand Opening on Friday, February 24th, 2017. After several months of design and construction, Tradecraft Industries is changing the once isolated industry and bringing the co-working mentality that thrives in tech and startup space to construction. Tc creates a space for its members to network, grow, and build relationships with others in similar trades.
“Construction is a dog eat dog world, Tc is built to give its members bigger teeth,” commented Bryce Ballew, the visionary founder of Tradecraft Industries. The beautifully conceived space has now taken on its finishing touches and is ready to be revealed to the Denver community. By bringing together great minds in the industry, Tradecraft Industries is shifting the perspective of all those involved by emphasizing the need for community and collaboration with expansion and growth as the pillar foundations for success. “Tc was designed and built for the construction professional to further advance their business in ways that were previously only obtained through hard-knocks,” remarked Ballew.
Tradecraft Industries founder Bryce Ballew, 34, conceptualized Tradecraft in 2012 when he ventured out on his own as a commercial CM/GC after more than 12 years of experience. In the years that followed, co-working spaces and small business incubators became booming business, while the construction industry lacked a progressive approach to supporting and encouraging small business growth and large business innovation. Ballew partnered with Denver based Live Forward Ventures to create a pathway for design and construction businesses to scale, grow and collaborate rather than operate in the different silos where they currently reside. “Tradecraft has a diverse variety of solutions for businesses of all sizes. From networking and continuing education to mailing addresses and storage, this combines a nuts-and-bolts approach with a C-suite touch.”
The response to Tradecraft and its progressive approach to business has been overwhelmingly positive. “When you’re doing something this new in an industry, it naturally attracts the right kind of people to build the community we envisioned,” expressed Director of Operations, Sarah Battani. Offices, memberships, and storage units have been sold and Tc has built a progressive, collaborative community within the trades as well as a professional network that will offer expertise to members.
The building’s details are clearly crafted with the members in mind. Utilizing an intentional industrial look with a sleek and modern finish, it gives the ambience of an industrial workshop, but with a unique modern touch. This approach summarizes Tradecraft’s ethos; promote the pillars of what construction business was founded on – integrity, grit, and hard work while bringing in a new flavor of efficiency, networking, and optimized business solutions. The space is located at 6145 Broadway in Denver, CO 80216 and is currently scheduling tours.
