The Moltz family came to Colorado and began building in the 1970s. Galen Moltz incorporated Moltz Construction in 1989, growing it into a premiere general contracting company. 

Eric Moltz graduated from Iowa State University and moved to California to work for a construction company specializing in water plants. On a visit to Colorado, Eric’s dad asked him to move home and take over the business. In 1995 Eric joined Moltz Construction, Inc. and with his background in water, redirected the company’s focus to primarily water and wastewater related projects. He knew the work, he knew the business, and Moltz thrived in this niche industry as a result. In 2019, Moltz joined the Graham Group of Companies, one of Canada’s largest contractors specializing in buildings, industrial and infrastructure construction.

Today, Moltz delivers industrial, municipal, and commercial construction projects, while continuing to accelerate its growth. Through more than 30 years we have built an exceptional team of construction professionals that we consider second to be none.




The types of delivery methods for designing and constructing projects are expanding. While the traditional design-bid-build delivery system remains popular, project owners now have a variety of delivery systems to choose from, including: 


In the traditional hard bid, engineering and architectural design services are clearly separated from construction services; the project is 100% designed prior to bidding.

Key Benefit: Contracts competitively bid to ensure the lowest price. 

Moltz Construction’s experienced estimating team takes pride in being thorough, utilizing the latest construction estimating software to propose a complete, quality product at the right price. 


Here, the contractor and designer work together as partners during the design phase to develop the project. Major subcontractors are also involved early on in the design process to provide their input.

Key Benefit: The project schedule is shortened as the design and construction phases overlap. 

Moltz Construction received the Design-Build Institute of America’s Design-Build Excellence Award in 2010 for the Fairplay Wastewater Treatment Plant project. 


In this delivery method, the General Contractor is involved in the pre-construction project management services and then acts as the general contractor during the construction phase. 

Key Benefit: The project is bid in packages or phases, allowing the overall project to be completed in phases. The General Contractor may choose to self-perform some critical phases of work, or may competitively bid those packages. 

In the Construction Manager at Risk delivery method, the contractor works under a Guaranteed Maximum Price.


This open book approach is frequently referred to as “cost plus,” meaning the product cost plus an agreed upon percentage. 

Key Benefit: This provides the highest level of financial transparency to the client. 


Rather than providing a fixed price or a percentage, this delivery method is limited to the cost of labor and the materials put into the project. 

Moltz Construction’s personnel have saved our clients thousands of dollars by suggesting innovative value engineering ideas. Our teams have specialized, hands-on experience that allows them to think creatively, suggesting improvements to projects that can also save clients money.
