Ground Breaking News...

We have officially completed the River Spirit mock-up in Tulsa, our first fully-unitized national project! 

Tulsa Mock-Up


Step 13 - "It's a hand up, not a hand out."

Step 13 Visit

Step 13 was a program started in 1983 by Bob Coté, a former boxer from Detroit. The program helps men with addiction challenges not only to find sobriety, but put their life and careers back on track. This is done through the dignity of work, something JR Butler can get behind and understand at a deep level. We believe understanding the dignity of work can solve many of our problems in society, not just sobriety.

Pictured is our CEO Marc Butler along with Felix Mestas, Director of Field Operations and Sam Lilgerose, Superintendent whom spent an evening sharing stories of overcoming their own challenges and becoming successful leaders.

JR Butler is proud to be an affiliate and supporter of Step 13.

Elite Team Hosts First Summer BBQ

"All work and no play" is not a JR Butler motto. On Saturday, August 16, the JR Butler Elite teamed proved just that with their first Summer BBQ. 
Employees from the field, manufacturing, and office came together with their families at the Washington Park boathouse for an afternoon of great food and family fun. While the kids enjoyed the paddle boats on the lake and the double surrey rides around the park, the adults took to some light-hearted competition on the volleyball court (winner depends on who you ask).
Lesson learned: Our guys are the best at what they do at work but they cannot keep footballs out of the trees.

The Colorado Freedom Memorial on The News

Project manager, Aaron Edwards, took part in a very special ceremony yesterday for the Colorado Freedom Memorial.  JR Butler is very honored to be a part of this project.  The Colorado Freedom Memorial is a memorial honoring every Coloradan soldier killed in the line of duty since statehood.   

Aaron drove up to Fort Morgan, Colorado to meet the truck delivering the glass from Viracon, our glass supplier.  They had a full escort all the way to the job site in Aurora, with the point guard and federal protection agency.  Numerous police departments also participated in the ceremony, blocking intersections and street - all saluting their respects as the convoy drove by.
