A Few Words About Us

Delivering high quality craftsmanship

Innovative Interiors & Construction was founded on the principle of delivering high quality craftsmanship. Ernie Johnson, the company’s owner and industry veteran, fostered this environment of integrity knowing that it would create demand for the company's services. Since the founding of the company back in 1992 Ernie and his team have accomplished over 3000 projects which include some of Denver’s attractions like the Wells Fargo Theater downtown.

With nearly 25 years experience working with acoustical treatment and soundproofing technologies and being the region's most respected and reliable sub contractor, general contractors and architects look to Denver based Innovative Interiors & Construction for solid advice and direction with their acoustical requirements.

Our History

Innovative Interiors & Construction was founded by Ernie Johnson in response to a rapidly expanding multiplex cinema market in 1992. Throughout the 1990’s the company's primary focus was installing acoustical wall panels and stretch fabric wall systems in theaters throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia. The company's first job was a UCI theater installation in Tamworth, England. During the 1990’s Innovative Interiors & Construction dominated the market with over 2500 auditorium instillations and approximately 50 employees operating out of the UK office.

As a result of shifts in the market in the early 2000’s, Innovate Interiors and Construction refocused marketing efforts on commercial acoustic treatment and soundproofing work in the Denver and Rocky Mountain Region. The Rocky Mountain market offered opportunities installing acoustical wall panels and acoustical stretch fabric systems in churches, schools, auditoriums as well as offices and conference rooms.

In 2006 Innovative Interiors & Construction purchased its current office. The office resides in the South Platte River Business District in south west Denver. Shortly after settling into their new office, Matt Domingo, a Senior Project Manager and Estimator, was added to the companies arsenal of experience. Matt, with his 20 plus years of industry experience, positioned the company to market direct to the general contractor and expand the companies customer base. In an effort to further our reach within the market the company has added its newest asset, Mr. Chris Herner as a Project Manager and Estimator. Chris also brings 20 years of acoustical and specialty ceiling experience to the table, rounding out Innovative Interiors & Construction’s talent to reflect the best and most experienced team in the industry.

Eurospan use in Breckenridge historic building

This brief video is a documentary of Eurospan’s use in Breckenridge Colorado’s Historic Old School House built in 1909. The school house has now been repurposed as a library and community center. Because of the nature of this historic building, traditional acoustical treatments where not going to be the best option. The Eurospan acoustical stretch system was the right choice for this project. This video offers a brief overview of the project and how Innovative Interiors and Construction and the Eurospan product tackled the job.

Testimonials

"Just want to let you know that the Principal at Steck is very happy with the installation of the baffles in the gym. I also think that they look outstanding! Thank you very much to you and your team for stepping up and completing this job, it is greatly appreciated by many individuals. Take care."

Andy

"While I didn’t work directly with Ernie, I did work closely with Matt Domingo and their installation crews in the field. Knowing that the Breckenridge project was a complex undertaking we were pleased that Matt and Team jumped in early to help with coordination. Once we were ready for their crews on site they were timely, efficient and respectful of others working around them. As with any project there were some hiccups and a large push at the end to complete the work across the board but Innovative was great to work with and very responsive throughout the project. We did not have a lot of experience with the Eurospan product that was specified for the Breckenridge project but they helped answer our questions about installation and logistics of sequencing for their scope."
