Darren founded Sharp General Contractors in 2006, after building years of construction experience under his father Orrin’s construction company. Starting as a teenage laborer, Darren has worked his way up through every level and every phase of commercial construction. Graduating from Amherst Collect in Massachusetts with a degree in Economics, then moving to Wall Street working on the International Fixed Income side of the Investment Bank with J.P. Morgan Chase and Co., he particularly enjoys the “numbers” aspect of a construction project. Darren’s role in the company is plan review and estimating, project management and budget reconciliation, and establishing and preserving client relationships. Darren is highly committed to client satisfaction and the company’s success, which go hand in hand. He holds employees and subcontractors to a high standard of quality in all areas, ensuring a “client first” philosophy on each project.
Dave joined forces with Sharp General Contractors in 2006. A native of Chicago’s “South Side,” Dave first became familiar with Colorado and the family (in-law) construction business while attending the U.S. Air Force Academy, from where he graduated with honors. After fulfilling his duties in the Air Force, Dave worked his way up to Captain for a commercial airline (ATA). In his role, Dave brings to SGC comprehensive, analytical and creative project management, with a special talent for customer and subcontractor relations. Typically preferring to be in the field, Dave contributes a proactive, problem solving, “get it done” approach to ensuring the success of a project. Dave is vested in the success of the company and is therefore constantly considering how daily project decision making and actions impact the overall budget and timeline of the project.
Orrin Sharp, Special Projects Consultant
Orrin is the Owner and Founder of Global Teams, LLC, a company that contracts with Sharp General Contractors on special projects. A graduate of Weber State College with a BS in Engineering, Orrin spent the first part of his professional career as a licensed engineer. After beginning his engineering endeavors with Lockheed in California, and later traveling the country in a rewarding position with General Electric, Orrin landed in Colorado Springs as manager for Joy Manufacturing. Listening to his calling, Orrin decided to apply his engineering-based ingenuity to construction by starting Dows Investment Co. in 1983. In the early days, Orrin got his foot in the door of the Colorado Springs construction industry with commercial tenant finish work that often required laboring late into the night (and often with his wife in tow) to meet a deadline. In the 23 years that have followed, Orrin has experienced nearly all there is to experience in the world of mid-sized commercial and residential construction. Whether it be about tenant finish, custom homes, stick or steel framed ground up commercial buildings, small to massive metal buildings or mini warehouse, tilt up concrete or block buildings, site development and infrastructure, and many, many more, there is rarely a question he can’t answer.
