I am a retired builder and current motel owner. Since my retirement as a builder, I have used Open Range Construction for all of my construction needs. We have used them for new construction, large scale remodels, and design services for the past 4 years. Dan and Martine are professional and caring in the delivery of their service. As an added bonus, they are educated in the leading edge field of energy saving construction and ongoing energy savings. I highly recommend them for any of your construction needs.
I had the pleasure of working with both Dan Vogel and Martine Vogel from 6/2010 through 1/2011. As
owners of Open Range Construction, they served as General Contractor and Consulting Superintendant
(Dan Vogel) and Senior Project Manager (Martine Vogel) during the design, bid-letting, and construction
of my 9000 square-foot automotive service facility located at 3905 Tutt Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO.
Throughout the entire process, both Dan and Martine performed admirably under all circumstances.
They are technically skilled and knowledgeable in all aspects of the commercial building process.
Regarding business ethics and professional conduct, their dealings with me and my business partners
(Rondi Stratton and Randy Schillinger) were beyond reproach.
Dan's demeanor and interaction with building department inspectors and officials was positive and
always civil. Whenever differing site conditions or inconsistencies in plan design vs. code requirements
occurred, Dan worked effectively with all parties (owner, subcontractor, supplier, building department
official) to resolve the issue to the satisfaction of all concerned.
Martine provided all the cost accounting, draw requests submittals, and contract compliance reports
throughout the contract period. Being a SBA-funded project, her reporting requirements were very
stringent and were subsequently handled promptly and with extreme accuracy.
The building was completed before its scheduled completion and under budget. I would recommend
both Dan and Martine for any construction related project for which they present themselves as
qualified. If there are any further questions or clarifications needed, please feel free to contact me at
