CATEGORY - Residential Subdivision Contractor: Aggregate Industries Owner: DR Horton This $1M project included construction of new residential streets for the Talon View subdivision in Thornton. Five streets were built using approximately 10,000 tons of asphalt pavement. Talon View Subdivision in Thornton Spring2022| 11 Harvey started his road construction career fifty years ago when he came to work for Kiewit on the I-70 project near Eagle as an assistant office manager. He grew up in Quebec Canada, went to College in Utah, then moved to Eagle in his early 20’s and worked at the Eagle lumber company before coming to Kiewit. He worked on various road projects throughout Colorado and became a foreman in the mid 70’s. Harvey took a liking to the asphalt paving work and started working at Kiewit’s Clark pit near Chatfield reservoir in the early 80’s. He was quickly promoted to project manager and managed the aggregate and asphalt production out of that facility for over 20 years. Harvey oversaw most of the paving projects around Denver at that time and was involved with the DIA work in the early 90’s and setting up the Aurora plant. Harvey has trained countless people over the years and has always demanded high quality and safe operations. Many of our executive managers have gone through Harvey’s school of hard knocks, but he is a great salesman and everyone who knows him loves him. He knows so many people in our industry and makes a point to call them often just to see how they are doing. Harvey continues to oversee the Kiewit Sedalia operations and in town paving work and obviously still loves what he does.
