With a state of the art production brewery in Sheridan, the company could shift some of their smaller brewing equipment to Cheyenne and open a second location. When approached by Black Tooth Brewing, Redco was very excited to add this client to our portfolio. The similarities of the Cheyenne location to the flagship Sheridan location are astounding. Both old auto dealerships from the late 40’s, angled front entry’s, and 1.5 blocks from the building depths respectively, made this project fun to compare the similarities.

Demolish the interior space complete with second floor concrete mezzanines. Working in a downtown Cheyenne location without a lot of material storage room. One of the most difficult portions of this work was all the underground plumbing, and trying to tie in new brewery slab elevations to existing slab elevations. The largest challenge we faced, came right during the time of projected opening, COVID-19. This project, just like everything else in the world, had to change overnight. We are proud to say that we were still able to finish the project in a timely manner, and have them ready and waiting for restrictions to lift.
Utilizing a team of experienced subcontractors who effectively handled changes to the design, andCOVID-19 response, meant we could continue building without significant delays or work stoppages. In addition to design/build, Redco Construction self performed many of the interior finishes in the brewery.
A job done well, thanks to the seamless integration of multiple Redco service lines, and a tribute to some truly talented subcontractors, made this a true show-piece. We are so thankful for the opportunity to work with Black Tooth, and know that this one of the best in the west.
