In 1947 my grandfather, Wendell Van Heukelem, began what is now Colorado Hardscapes as a one man operation known as Van Heukelem Concrete. Many sidewalks, curbs and gutters in and around the Denver Metro Area bear the Van Heukelem concrete stamp to this day.
My father, Calvin, took over the company and expanded it into decorative concrete and rock work. With a unique vision for the company and skilled, loyal employees, Colorado Hardscapes grew to six divisions of true craftsmen producing award winning cast-in-place concrete. Cal’s vision culminated in the creation of Colorado’s first Concrete Design Center in 2001.
Like my father, I grew up in the company and after training and working as an engineer I came to work for Colorado Hardscapes in 1999. I became a proud third generation CEO in 2003.
The integrity and vision of my grandfather and my father have been infused into every aspect of Colorado Hardscapes and it is my intention to carry on these values as we continue to expand into new and innovative territories. It is my hope that you will partner with us as we realize the possibilities within the concrete industry and within ourselves.
