Scott Hargrove has been serving discerning residential clients for over 40 years. In 1977 Scott formed Scott Builders in Thousand Oaks, California. He began building custom residences in many of its most prestigious areas, including Malibu, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Ventura, and Santa Barbara.
Over the next 16 years, the company completed over 100 multi-million dollar luxury homes for a diverse clientele. Some of these homes were as large as 8,000 square feet and built by 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. They were seeking a desirable alpine setting to raise their four children when 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. Since the company's founding, 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 production level allows for an efficient economy of scale while allowing detailed personal involvement in 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.
Hargrove & Kidd Construction has also completed numerous historical renovation projects and commercial buildings in the Crested Butte area, along with its new home-building activities. One commercial building serves as the company's main office and a millwork shop.
All the projects completed since 1993 have been at elevations over 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. In addition, 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 translates 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 later as a project manager before taking over the company. He brings excellent carpentry skills, creativity, organization, communication, and planning to every project. Now in the business for 20 years, Jason is a sought-after general contractor in the Gunnison Valley.
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 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 is dedicated to building beautiful homes in Crested Butte.
