As we build better facilities, we also want to build better communities. U.S. Engineering encourages our team members to get involved in the organizations they feel passionate about, and each year, we directly support organizations that focus on at-risk and low-income families, health care and medicine, youth programs and the arts.
While we don’t capture every single instance of our people engaging with their communities, in 2022, we documented more than 70 different community-focused activities on our social media platforms. That means our team members donated their time, talent and treasure to an average of 1.35+ acts of service a week. In this article we feature some of the ways U.S. Engineering team members made an impact last year.
As our family of companies continues to grow, we see giving back to our communities as more than a priority. It’s our responsibility.
Golf Tournaments for Charity
Between our Denver and Kansas City offices, we hosted two charity golf events that raised more than $130,000 combined. In Denver, we contributed more than $72,000 to There with Care, a group that helps families dealing with a child’s medical issues. The Kansas City office raised $60,000 for Literacy KC, whose vision is “Literacy for All.”
Marshall Fire Emergency Response
Over the course of the first four days of 2022, U.S. Engineering Construction, Service and Metalworks team members in our Rocky Mountain region volunteered to provide service restoring gas lines for those affected by the Marshall Fire in Boulder County, Colorado. Their efforts impacted over 400 residents and about 20 local businesses.
U.S. Engineering rallied the community together to thank healthcare workers, public safety officials and educators for their dedication and sacrifice as the pandemic continued. We asked people to flash lights and make noise for five full minutes, and businesses and news outlets around Kansas City embraced the show of support.
CSU CM Cares Projects
U.S. Engineering supported individual and community health and wellbeing by giving time and resources to the Construction Management (CM) Cares program at Colorado State University. This program promotes service learning for its students by partnering on construction-related projects for individuals with special needs or local community service agencies.
Team Member-Led Holiday Give Back Programs
Lots happened in 2022, but one thing remained constant: U.S. Engineering team members’ generosity. We’re proud that year in and year out our teams offer their service and share what they have with their communities during the holidays and throughout the year.

The spirit for community impact starts at the top for U.S. Engineering. CEO Tyler Nottberg and his wife Leigh were recognized for their community leadership by two organizations: Jackson County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and High Aspirations, both of which focus on providing needed support for the youth in our community.
