Recent Project Awards

 Jaynes collaborated closely with Studio Southwest Architects for this Design-Build project. The first step in high-level project management is selecting the delivery system that is most appropriate for the project. Jaynes and the Pueblo of Sandia selected Design-Build delivery method for this project. Jaynes was awarded the difficult task to Design AND Build the project in 12 months. Our project team was able to produce a complete design in approximately two months, allowing for 10 months of construction. Learn more about how this project won a 2019 NAIOP Award.

Jaynes had the opportunity to contribute to community and individual development through the Farmington High School (FHS) Additions and Renovations project. This project was a four-year, multi-phased endeavor to replace the aging, scattered buildings of an inefficiently laid out campus with a modern, well-organized campus. Learn more about the FHS project and how it won a 2019 AGC Best Buildings – Construction Management/CMAR award.

Manzano High School’s previous facility, built in 1961, was not only out of date but did not equally accommodate all students. The previous facility was a safe space for students to gather for friendly rivalries and make memories that last a lifetime. Jaynes, together with APS and Studio Southwest Architects, delivered space where the youth of our communities can make memories which involve a more inclusive campus while still honoring the memories of alumni. Learn more about how this project won the 2019 AGC Best Buildings – LEED Certifiable Project Award.

The CNM Richard R. Barr Hall project as a whole can be characterized as a combination of renovation, demolition and additions aimed at providing CNM with a “new” iconic campus centroid that effectively supports, enhances, and promotes CNM’s teaching and learning activities and missions. Learn more about CNM Richard R. Barr Hall and why it received an Honorable Mention for the 2019 AGC Best Building Awards.

Bernalillo’s most recent hotel addition, Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel has been a catalyst for hospitality in this community. The new hotel compliments the Pueblo of Santa Ana’s rich history with its designs and finishings. This modern, state-of-the-art facility offers a combination of new technologies combined with intentional execution.  Learn more about this facility’s impact on our communities that has granted it the NAIOP MERIT Award.

Sandia Resort and Casino is a popular destination for live events, attracting music and entertainment lovers from throughout New Mexico as well as across the country. This project took a team with experience executing projects at the center of a fully functional casino facility. The Amphitheater and Main Entry projects earned the 2018 NAIOP MERIT Award. Learn more about these projects and their impact on the community.

Galles Chevrolet’s newest facility provided a much needed expansion for Galles to hold their previously crowded inventory of vehicles. The building itself adds a space in the showroom, service center and reception area, to house more customers as well as employees. A once vacant lot of land will now be used to attract consumers from across the state and also attract other companies from the area.  Learn more about Galles Chevrolet and how it earned the 2018 NAIOP MERIT Award.

To increase choice and expand access to care for residents of Santa Fe and northern New Mexico, Presbyterian Healthcare Services opened Presbyterian Santa Fe Medical Center.

Learn more about Presbyterian Santa Fe Medical Center and how it won a 2018 NAIOP Liberty Eagle Award.

The Taos Ski Valley – Blake Hotel project is a key component to growth and success for Taos Ski Valley and northern New Mexico.
