History of Native Sun

Native Sun Materials, Inc. was organized in 2008 and began supplying ready-mix concrete and aggregate for a booming housing market in Mesquite, Nevada. Because of our expertise in portable ready-mix supply, several customers asked us to set up batch plants for various projects on the Navajo Reservation.  In 2009 Native Sun secured a gravel pit in Thoreau, New Mexico.  By 2012 Native Sun had morphed into a company supplying and delivering annually over 20,000 cubic yards of concrete and around 150,000 tons of aggregate to the Navajo Nation and surrounding counties. 

In 2012 Native Sun Materials contracted with a company out of California called McMillan Construction for the installation of 36” and 48” water transmission lines along Highway 491, near Gallup, New Mexico.  This project was for the Bureau of Reclamation and US Army Core of Engineers.  Our primary function was to supply and install the flow-fill or concrete low strength material around the large diameter pipe.  The project was completed in 2014.

Having the experience and expertise to grow quickly, we took on other scopes of construction. We contracted with Catamount Construction to perform the earthwork, underground utilities, and concrete for building the Dennehotso Boarding School for BIA.  We also contracted with the Navajo Nation to demolish a large sawmill in New Mexico, which included complete demolition of a small power plant and several large metal buildings.  We crushed all the concrete into road base material and hauled the metals to scrap yards.

The flood of 2013 in Weld County, Colorado, brought Native Sun to Colorado. Native Sun contracted with Roche Construction of Greely, Colorado, to do emergency repair of County Road 61 for Weld County. This project consisted of 60,000 yards of imported structural fill and about a quarter mile of new asphalt paving.

Seeing opportunity in Colorado for civil contracting, we went right into several other projects including an Alfalfa’s Market in Greeley, the Public Works Building in Fredrick, and the Noosa Dairy expansion in Fort Collins.  We naturally expanded to larger contracts including Colorado Towers, a place and finish project, and a 6-level concrete structure for an assisted living development, Windcrest.  We have since completed six more buildings and a parking garage at Windcrest.


We also set up a place and finish concrete crew working along the front range performing for general contractors such as GE Johnson, Brinkman, JE Dunn, Roche Construction, CSI, CFA, and Mortenson. Teaming up with Proformance Concrete under CSI, we performed concrete scopes on Wasatch Apartments and Cascade Apartments, both Norwood Development projects.  These projects consisted of three-level parking garages with podium decks. 


Because we were performing much more construction than material supply we added a trade name to our company, Native Sun Construction.  This side of our company handles all construction contracts.  Listed below are the projects since 2019:
