Please welcome to the team, two new additions to our Preconstruction team. Hannah Wassenberg who joins us from Kansas to fill our Bid Coordinator position and a return from Jeanna Whipple to fill our Business Development Manager position.

On March 14th, Hannah Wassenberg joined our preconstruction team as our new bid coordinator. She brings with her 4 years of experience in the A/E/C industry. Hannah's husband, Eric, was transferred from their Kansas location to their Colorado location bringing Hannah to Hall-Irwin. A fun fact about her is the fact she is part of the Delaware Tribe of Indians based in Oklahoma and this year will be her 35th one in attendance to the Delaware Pow-Wow. She will continue to camp, dress, dance and observe her culture!


On March 28th, Jeanna Whipple returned to Hall-Irwin as our Business Development Manager.

Jeanna married her high school sweetheart, Chris, 21 years ago. They have two daughters, Reagan and Lily, who are the center of their world. On her days off, she enjoys spending time with her family doing anything outside, crafting with her daughters (Chris is not the crafting type 😊), and going on vacation adventures.

She has over 20 years of experience in the commercial construction world in both marketing and client relationship-building roles. 7 of those years were spent working with the Hall-Irwin team and she is thrilled to rejoin our Hall-Irwin family as Business Development Manager. “Hall-Irwin has always been an innovative, diverse company. I’m honored to be invited back under Lori’s leadership with the opportunity to continue to build George Hall’s legacy as we help clients manage commercial vertical, horizontal infrastructure, and water storage construction projects.”

Jeanna is passionate about people. She is energized by meeting people, learning from them, teaching them, and helping in any way she can utilizing her creativity and experience to provide solutions. She has been on the board of the Women’s Fund of Weld County for the past 6 years. Women’s Fund of Weld County is a grant resource for non-profits to support programs for Women and Girls in our community to become self-confident, educated, and highly contributed members of our community.

Debbie has worked in construction for seven years, and has been privileged to spend them all with Hall-Irwin. Her husband, Ross (pictured), enjoys coming to see what she does from time to time, even when it’s a messy slurry wall. She settled on the Front Range 10 years ago, after three years working for a non-profit in Russia—a country which will always hold a piece of her heart.

Debbie is also known for her work partners when she is attending a zoom call. Her intriguing cats are more than eager to join as one always seems to be trying to join the video in the background.


Garrett is currently a superintendent with Hall-Irwin but is moving into the role of a Project Engineer. He is 37 and single with no kids currently residing on his family's cattle ranch in Hudson, but would like some kids one day. He attends CSU being a Colorado native, even though he's lived in 8 states as his father is a corporate pilot.

His passion is also his secondary career, he is a hunting and fishing guide.

Garrett wears a hard hat daily and better than anyone, but still consistently has great hair days. He is also proof that chivalry is not dead, even in the rough and tumble construction industry.


Tanner is Hall-Irwin's newest Project Engineer and brings 7 years of experience in the construction industry with him. He graduated from the University of Northern Colorado Monfort School of Business and has returned to Colorado and welcomed the arrival of his first child. They have decided to keep the gender a surprise so stay tuned!

Tanner grew up in Eaton and played baseball which was a huge part of the community. Nearly everyday during summer there was morning league and he would play with all of his friends. There were also two traveling teams would would play in the afternoon. Entering high school, he ended up playing legion ball in summer and fall ball in the fall. The springtime is when he would play for school. He ended up playing over 80 in just one summer. After that he played at Scottsdale Community College until he tore his rotator cuff. After rehabbing it back into shape, he went on to play at Arizona Christian University for a season. Now days he mostly enjoys golfing or running in his free time.

Tanner is always kind no matter what is going on. He keeps calm even when he is frustrated with slow software or exhausted from a busy weekend.


Tayler Rensink began with Hall-Irwin as an intern and has now been back full-time as a Project Engineer. He graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S. in Construction management. He has a rounded knowledge of the construction industry working on both vertical commercial projects as well as civil land development projects.

He can work with any team and is always eager to support project managers and superintendents however he can. When he isn't working, you can find him enjoying sports by participating or watching them.

Coworkers would say he is a great asset to Hall-Irwin with his strong work ethic and positive disposition. He's been known to help pull others out of hot water on more than one occasion.

In 2017, Hall-Irwin was contracted by Glacier Hotels to build the Element by Westin hotel at 1 Marshall Road in Superior, CO. We constructed this 4-level, LEED certified hotel located just off the Boulder Turnpike/Hwy 36, which became a popular stop for businesspeople and tourists alike. This was such an exciting project for the community that it was mentioned on Superior’s website: https://downtownsuperior.com/element-hotel-construction-downtown-superior/.

On December 30, 2021, however, the operations of this beautiful hotel came to a sudden halt, when it was completely incinerated by Colorado's most destructive wildfire ever, the Marshall Fire. The fire was named after its origination point* on Marshall Road nearly four miles west of the hotel, at the intersection with State Highway 93. Fueled by wind gusts up to 115 mph, the fire blasted through over 6,000 acres in just a few hours, destroying over 1,000 homes and businesses, and causing over $510 million in damages. Entire subdivisions were reduced to unrecoverable rubble, as was the Element Hotel. The fire was finally extinguished with the help of heavy snowfall on New Year’s Eve (the storm which caused the previous day’s extreme winds). Although the snow came as a much-needed relief from the fire, it made search and rescue missions that much more difficult, as crews had to trudge through a foot of snow over still-burning embers.

Demolition of the remains of the Element will take place in March, 2022 and plans to rebuild are underway.

*As of publication of this, the Marshall Fire's cause is still under investigation.
