Why Denark?

Performance as Construction Manager At-Risk

Our emphasis on professional Preconstruction Services has led to reliable and consistent budgets, detailed value management, avoiding change orders and controlling costs throughout the project. In fact, our Change Order % for CM At-Risk projects is typically less than half a percent!

Tenure of Team

The average tenure of a Denark Operations Team Member is more than 15 years. The industry average is 4 years. Our people are always our most valuable asset. Therefore, we take care of our Team, our Team takes care of our Clients, and in turn our Clients trust us with repeat business. This circle of success has resulted in 70% repeat business.

Consistent On-Time Completion

We are committed to delivering on every promise made, especially as it relates to completing projects on-time. We are proud of the fact that Denark has never been assessed liquidated damages on a project in its history.

2023 Pinnacle Award

Denark was honored to receive the Knoxville Chamber‘s Pinnacle Impact Award in 2023. The award is presented to a non-charitable business that displays a commitment to making East Tennessee a better place to live through the development and support of a community project or program. This recognition would not have been possible without Denark’s outstanding Team Members. Their hard work, caring hearts, and commitment to serve is what makes our company a great place to work, and our community a great place to live.

Giving Back

Since its inception, Denark has proven to be a leader in corporate philanthropy and civic engagement. Despite having fewer than 100 Team Members, our company has consistently ranked in the Top 25 among all businesses and corporations for United Way giving since 2014. In any given year, Denark supports and participates in more than 75 different programs, initiatives, or events for a variety of community organizations.

Our rationale for investment is not transactional. “Giving back” is part of our company’s mission and we consider it a cultural value throughout Denark. Our community has helped us be successful; therefore, it is our responsibility to help the community be successful. We support programs, projects, and policies that help make the Knoxville area a great place for our company to thrive and for our Team Members to live, work, play, and raise their families.
