COMPANY HISTORY

Scott Hargrove has been serving discerning residential clients for over 40 years.  In 1977 Scott formed Scott Builders in Thousand Oaks, California and began building custom residences in many of its most prestigious areas including Malibu, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Ventura and Santa Barbara.

 

Over the course of the next 16 years the company successfully completed over 75 multi-million dollar luxury homes for a diverse clientele.  Some of these homes were as large as 8,000 square feet and built in conjunction with  nationally recognized architects such as Barry Berkus.

In 1993 Scott and Kristi, his wife and co-owner, chose to relocate their business to the mountains  of Colorado.  Seeking a desirable alpine setting in which to raise their four children they relocated to Crested Butte.  The couple continued their business where they had left off, attracting new clients with high quality craftsmanship and building mutually beneficial, long-lasting relationships.  In 2000 Scott Builders was incorporated as Hargrove Construction Co., Inc.  We are proud of the fact that in all history we have never been involved in litigation.

Because of the commitment to maintaining direct control over its projects, Hargrove Construction has typically averaged two to three projects in various stages of completion at any given time.  This level of production allows for an efficient of economy of scale while still allowing the personal detailed involvement in each and every project.

During its 20 years in Crested Butte the company has consistently delivered custom homes in prominent areas throughout the valley including Taylor Canyon, Prospect, Red Mountain Ranch, The Danni Ranch, Trapper's Crossing, Gold Link and the Town of Crested Butte.  Several of these projects have received recognition in Luxe Home Magazine, Luxury Log Homes, Timber Frame Magazine and various trade publications.

Along with its new home building activities, Hargrove Construction has also completed numerous historical renovation projects and two commercial buildings in the Crested Butte area.  One of the commercial buildings serves as the main office as well as a millwork shop for the company. 

All of the projects completed since 1993 are located at elevations in excess of 8,000 feet with annual snowfall averaging 300 inches.  In such difficult conditions efficiency and experience are critical to the planning, budgeting and ultimate execution of projects.  This experience directly benefits our clients through access to qualified vendors, hands on knowledge of specialized techniques relevant to high alpine construction, time tested accounting and reporting systems and vendor loyalty.  Each of these translate into improved efficiency of production and superior value per dollar spent.

In 2018, Hargrove Construction became Hargrove & Kidd Construction, Co. Inc. The new name reflects the addition of Jason Kidd as a partner in the business. Jason Kidd started working for Hargrove Construction in 2003 as a carpenter and then a project manager. He brings great carpentry skill, creativity, organization, communication and planning to every project.

 

Jason moved to the Gunnison Valley in 1998 from Richmond, Virginia to attend Western State Colorado University. Jason is married to Julia Kidd, a teacher at the Crested Butte Community School; they have two young boys.


Since 1977 Scott Builders, Hargrove Construction and now Hargrove & Kidd Construction have successfully built more than 100 custom homes clearly demonstrating stability and consistency.  Relationships, experience, and reliability define Hargrove & Kidd Construction. Hargrove & Kidd Construction Company will continue our dedication to building beautiful homes in Crested Butte for years to come.
