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.


Commitment to Community

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (August 23, 2019) – Molzen Corbin’s nearly 60-year history of successful projects is visible throughout the State of New Mexico. What is not as visible—but equally important--is our nearly 60-year commitment to serving the communities where we live and work. Our commitment extends beyond engineering and architecture; it includes working to make a difference every day in these communities. In fact, “commitment to community” has long been a tenet of our President and Owner, Del Archuleta, MS, PE.  “I am proud of our legacy of giving back to the community. We are fully vested in the future of New Mexico; this is our home, these are our families, this is our future.”

This dedication to shaping the future of New Mexico continues today, and Molzen Corbin is pleased to announce the following employee accomplishments:

Daniel Gonzales, PE, Vice President of Electrical Engineering: Daniel was recently selected to Leadership Albuquerque’s Class of 2020. The goal of Leadership Albuquerque is to prepare business leaders from any industry for greater leadership roles within their companies and the community as a whole. Daniel is the fifth member of Molzen Corbin’s executive team to participate in this 10-month long program.

Kevin Eades, PE, Executive Vice President, Civil Department Leader: Kevin is a 2009 graduate of Leadership Albuquerque and is furthering his dedication to New Mexico by participating in Leadership New Mexico’s 2020 Core Program. This 10-month long program gathers leaders from across the state to discuss, analyze, and develop solutions for New Mexico’s most pressing issues (such as education and aging infrastructure). Kevin explained, “Because we are a home-grown New Mexico business, we appreciate the struggles our communities face on a daily basis, and we work to design “right-sized” solutions that are practical, sustainable, and durable. With Leadership New Mexico, I am looking forward to meeting leaders from across the state and understanding what challenges they face.”

Del Archuleta, MS, PE, Owner and President: Del was recently appointed for a three-year term to the University of New Mexico Hospital (UNMH) Board of Trustees. The 9-member Board of Trustees meets monthly and is tasked with representing the community’s interests at UNMH through planning, advocacy, and oversight. Del brings a wealth of corporate board and community service experience to this role, having served in leadership positions for numerous boards, including New Mexico Gas Company, Bank of Albuquerque, New Mexico First, Public Service Company of New Mexico, New Mexico Mutual, United Way of Central New Mexico, Explora! Science Center and Children’s Museum, New Mexico State University, and Presbyterian Healthcare Services.  

At Molzen Corbin, we understand that the fabric that holds our communities together is stronger than just the infrastructure projects we work on every day; it is made up of us as community members and the connections we hold with the people and places around us. We congratulate Daniel, Kevin, and Del in continuing our long standing tradition of building a stronger New Mexico through public service and community involvement.
