MaKing friends and business partners

The MaK Construction team has a new office in Parker that has a garage bay to hold Keith Rodenberger’s recent purchase at the Barrett-Jackson auction.

Finding an honest and trustworthy contractor during any commercial or residential remodeling project can be daunting. Keith Rodenberger knows it all too well, and as the owner of MaK Construction, he firmly believes your next construction project can be “easy, enjoyable and stress-free.”

Keith is no stranger to operating and managing a successful business. He and his wife, Holly, moved to Colorado from Connecticut in 2002 and opened The Palms Tanning Resort and Spa in Greenwood Village a year later. They opened four additional locations and eventually sold the franchise to Glo in 2021. It was during the construction of their third location of The Palms that Keith met his future business partner and general contractor, Matt Schmeeckle. Keith and Matt forged their relationship and formed MaK Construction in 2013, the name reflecting their first initials.

What began as a startup business in Keith’s home office in Forest Park has become an established and reputable local general contractor, propelled to an early success with the renovation of Duke’s Steakhouse. Duke’s owner, Neal Minarick, named the MaK burger on the menu after the MaK team to show his appreciation.

MaK handles both residential and commercial construction projects. On the residential side, the company offers custom home builds, new additions, kitchen remodels, bathroom remodels, basement finishes, custom decks, and outdoor living spaces.  On the commercial side, it offers tenant finishes, office remodels and new construction.

Currently, in addition to the many projects that MaK Construction is working on, four residential remodel projects are in Keith’s cul-de-sac. One such homeowner is Jaime McNitt, who has also contracted with MaK for her soon-to-open business in Castle Pines, the Remedy Bar.

One of the many services that MaK truly enjoys offering its clients is custom home builds. MaK is currently completing scrape-and-build projects in Surrey Ridge and in the Wash Park area. Additionally, MaK is under contract to build new custom homes in the hottest-growth areas of Franktown and Elizabeth.

Almost the entire Rodenberger family is involved in the business. Keith’s wife, Holly, is the director of finance. Their son Jonathan (22), a senior at University of Colorado Boulder, will be joining the company after graduating this spring. The couple’s youngest son, Jack (18) is a senior at Rock Canyon High School and currently works for MaK as the director of maintenance for the company’s fleet of trucks. The Rodenberger’s daughter, Kelly, lives in Los Angeles and made Keith and Holly first-time grandparents with the birth of their beautiful grandaughter in March.
