Recent Project Awards

San Juan College Student Housing

2023 AGC Best Building LEED Certifiable

Jaynes began working with San Juan College nearly 30 years ago and has completed nearly 30 projects on campus. Our most recent SJC Student Housing project marks a 20-year journey to provide on-site student housing. The facility involved a three-story, wood-framed building that provides the space for 150 students to stay on campus. The 37,500 square foot building also provides a large Great Room, full kitchen, laundry rooms and multiple study and breakout areas. By collaborating with the LEED professional on site, the project team quickly addressed and avoided issues throughout the duration of the project. Each detail of the facility was intentional, emphasizes culture, and provides a solid foundation to ensure healthy living for SJC’s students.

Dzilth-Na-O-Dith-Hle Community School

2023 AGC Best Building $20 Million and over

The Dzilth-Na-O-Dith-Hle K-8 Community School is located on the Navajo Nation, south of Bloomfield, New Mexico. This Design/Build replacement project consisted of the construction of an academic facility to include a library/media area, administrative area, kitchen/dining, gymnasium, dormitory, play fields, facilities, maintenance building renovation, and utilities. The sire area impacted by construction was approximately 20.5 acres and consisted of: 190,000 square feet of landscaped area, 9,000 square feet of turf play fields, 12,500 square feet of play equipment areas, 57,783 square feet of the new school building, and 13,520 square feet of the new dormitory building. 

The Dzilth-Na-O-Dith-Hle Community School is home to many students who would not otherwise have access to quality education. The incorporation of indigenous Navajo tradition and culture throughout the development make this project profoundly unique.

Presbyterian Hospotal Addition and Renovation

2023 ASA Large Project of the Year $10 Million and Above

Jaynes built Presbyterian’s tallest tower yet on its original, 111-year-old campus. The new 335,000 square foot, 11-story facility (with an additional penthouse) increased patient rooms by more than 25%. Phase 1 of this CMAR project involved infrastructure relocation and upgrades, building demolition stabilization and shoring, central energy center upgrades, and the diagnostic and treatment unit/patient tower expansion and renovation. Proactive collaboration with Presbyterian Healthcare Services and DPS Architects structured the project in a way that our entire team was able to combine our forces to provide innovative design and construction solutions to maximize the patient experience and operational efficiency.

Sandia Resort & Casino South Expansion

2022 AGC Best Building $20 million and over
2022 AGC Outstanding Specialty Work

The Sandia Resort & Casino 3-Level South Expansion is the largest project we’ve completed for the Pueblo of Sandia. We worked alongside Studio Southwest Architects in a design-build process that proudly showcases Pueblo architectural styles, this 14-month project provided jobs during COVID-19 and continues to boost economic growth for the Pueblo.

Haven of Hope, Inc.

2022 AGC Best Building $2.5 million to $5 million

Jaynes teamed up with Huitt-Zollars to design and build the infrastructure, office space, and residence for Artesia’s Haven of Hope, an organization offering single mothers a way to gain job skills, receive financial counseling, continue their education, and build a better life for themselves and their children while living in a safe and structured home-like environment. From the beginning, we made a commitment to hiring local subcontractors whenever possible to help workers and their families in the community during COVID-19.

UNM Johnson Center Expansion & Renovation

2021 AGC Best Building $20 million and over

Using Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) methods, Jaynes completed over 100,000 square feet of renovation and new construction to modernize and improve this on-campus fitness space. Improvements include expanded weight and cardio equipment space, indoor track and cycling studio, new amenities including bathrooms, laundry room, lobby, and social areas, and upgraded heating and air conditioning. These renovations create a health-focused space where students, staff, and faculty can thrive.

Santa Fe High School Administration Building – Phase 1

2021 AGC Best Building
$10 million to $20 million

The Santa Fe High School (SFHS) Administration Building – Phase 1 project consisted of four micro-phases, with all renovations, demolition, and new construction focused on enhancing security on the 100-acre campus and updating its facilities. Because the campus stayed open for the duration of construction, we prioritized the reduction of dust and noise to minimize student distraction and environmental disruption. New safety features include concrete retaining walls, metal wall panels, visitor identification technology, and door barricade devices for classrooms to keep students and faculty safe.
