Molzen Corbin Attends 2019 Montezuma Ball

Executive Vice President, Jerry Paz, along with fellow Molzen Corbin engineers were honored to attend the 2019 Montezuma Ball. This year’s proceedings went toward supporting Dual Language Education of New Mexico, a local New Mexican non-profit organization working to promote multilingual education throughout the state. Molzen Corbin is pleased to continue its support for dual language education in New Mexico.

The Montezuma Ball is over 100 years old, with the first event held in 1902 as part of the New Mexico Territorial Fair, otherwise known as the New Mexico State Fair. This tradition continued until the last historic ball was held at the Alvarado Hotel in Albuquerque in 1968. In 2000, Heritage Hotels and Resorts restored this New Mexico tradition as part of the inauguration of its new Alvarado Ballroom at Hotel Albuquerque. In the 19 years since, Montezuma Ball has raised millions of dollars for deserving nonprofits across New Mexico and continues to support organizations working to preserve and celebrate New Mexican culture and traditions.

Bernalillo County Hosts Ribbon Cutting for Molzen Corbin-Designed Sunset Road Project

On October 25, 2019, Bernalillo County hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony at Armijo Elementary School unveiling the Sunset Road Improvements project. Molzen Corbin was humbled to see the enthusiastic response of the community and especially the students of Armijo Elementary School. “We start every project knowing that, no matter how big or small, it is important to the community, and once complete, it will impact the quality of life of those residents,” explained Mr. Kevin Eades, Executive Vice President of Civil Engineering.

Molzen Corbin’s recently completed Sunset Road Improvements Project is a prime example of an infrastructure project that has a huge impact for surrounding residents. Sunset Road, a moderate capacity collector road in Bernalillo County’s South Valley, was desperately in need of safety and roadway improvements. Due to its location next to Armijo Elementary School, Molzen Corbin ensured safety was a key driver in all engineering design improvements.

Sidewalks, bike lanes, curbs, and gutters, as well as traffic calming features, were key safety improvements to enhance multi-modal accessibility and to reduce and discourage speeding. In addition, the project included a new storm drain system, pavement rehabilitation, and new sewer collector lines. - KRQE News Story

Village of Tijeras Secures $750,000 Grant

With a population of only 541, the Village of Tijeras happens to be home to a burgeoning senior center with an enrollment of almost 500 senior citizens. Molzen Corbin has been involved since the center’s inception by leading the design and construction of phases 1–3 of the Village of Tijeras Senior Center beginning in 2011. The final phase 4, set to be completed by 2022, adds an additional 3,600 sq ft to the existing structure providing much needed space for lunch, fitness, music classes, and other activities that the seniors enjoy. With our assistance, the Village was able to secure capital outlay funding for a portion of phase 4; however, in order to fund the entire project, the Village needed to seek funds from other resources by applying for grants.

Molzen Corbin is proud to have helped Tijeras secure $750,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to complete the final phase of their senior center. Specialized grant services provided to the village allowed the small mountain community to develop a competitive application that stood out among others. Congratulations to the Village of Tijeras and the senior citizens who will benefit from this project for years to come.
