History & Recognition

For over a decade, we successfully shaped the real estate landscape of Northern Colorado as Brinkman Partners, an integrated real estate company that housed Commercial Construction, Development, Investment, and Property Management under the same umbrella. Brothers Paul and Kevin Brinkman founded the company in 2005 and in the 11 years that it operated within the integrated real estate model Brinkman grew to a staff of over 100 talented, educated, and experienced individuals.

In order to allow each side of the business the opportunity to focus on their unique expertise and strategy, we dropped the “Partners” in 2016 and rebranded as two distinct companies: Brinkman and Brinkman Construction. We continue to work closely together to leverage our partnership to best serve our clients and deepen our community impact.

Today, Kevin leads the vision of the Brinkman company as Chief Executive Officer. Paul has transitioned his leadership role to continue on the company’s Investment Committee and through active involvement in future project evaluation and capital investment with Development deals.  For Brinkman Construction, he serves as Chairman of the Board.

Since our start, we have been honored to receive numerous business and industry awards.
