Englewood, Colorado, April 30, 2019 – Today, Elevation Volleyball Club (EVC) and Kahn Construction held a ground breaking ceremony to commemorate the construction of a 30,960 Sq ft. volleyball training facility geared toward youth and adult volleyball programs. The ceremony took place at 12987 E. Adam Aircraft Cir. Englewood, CO on April 30, 2019 at 5pm.
The new volleyball facility will house six indoor volleyball courts, office space, a conference room, a kitchen and a mezzanine area and will have the flexibility to expand to eight indoor courts. Future plans also include the addition of outdoor sand courts to accommodate the booming summer beach doubles volleyball season.
"We extend our sincere gratitude to the individuals and groups that have invested in our vision, commented EVC Co-owner Matt Burrell. “We think of them as part of the Elevation family and look forward to a future of growing the club and the game of volleyball by enhancing the lives of athletes through the sport."
Colorado owned and operated, Kahn Construction Corporation was selected to build the facility. According to Burrell, “Their exemplary references and outstanding portfolio speaks for itself, not to mention they bring the perfect balance of budget and results to Elevation. The project should take approximately seven months to complete and comes during a time of great growth and demand for the sport.”
“The Elevation Volleyball facility is a big win for Kahn Construction, as well as for this community,” commented Kahn Construction President, Tom Kahn. We look forward to working with the team and providing them with an unmatched product that will be enjoyed for generations to come”
Rob Graham, one of Elevation’s founders added, “Youth volleyball is experiencing tremendous growth in Colorado. Now, with the recent sanctioning of high school boy’s volleyball, there is an increase in demand for court space and quality
coaching. Elevation has both and we are geared toward helping girls and boys to experience the power of the game and the benefits this team sport offers. Our highly trained coaches and this new facility allows us to offer these kids an optimal environment for training and competing at a variety of levels.”
