We had the good fortune of connecting with Max Schecher and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Max, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Construction isn’t easy don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. This isn’t something that we do just for the paycheck. We take a lot of pride in being able to take a step back and admire the work. The amount of effort and energy required to do a great job is often undervalued and overlooked in this industry. On top of that, generally speaking, contractors get a bad rap. We hear horror stories all the time of people taking deposits and never showing up to do the work, leaving jobs unfinished and never coming back, or just doing sub-par work, which frankly can be extremely dangerous. That’s not what we’re about. We saw an opportunity to take our skills, ambition, and charisma and try to make some serious change in this industry. What we offer is a beautiful finished product and unparalleled customer service. Construction can be a loud, disruptive, and messy ordeal, but it doesn’t have to be. One of our main goals is to have our clients enjoy the construction process from start to finish, especially since many people are working from home these days. We certainly have ideals that we were founded on, and we believe that as long as we stick with them, the sky is the limit. In essence, Infinite Creations is the idea that we can build, or do, anything. It’s an umbrella idea under which we are able to expand outwardly in any direction we want. The industry is booming right now and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. We want to not only be a part of it but change the game. Our vision of development doesn’t look like cookie-cutter houses set in suburbia. We want to build something, literally and figuratively, that offers a sense of community. Our knowledge of construction, design, and people is the vehicle to get there.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I don’t think a lot of people look at construction as an art form. Sure, anyone can go and throw some walls and drywall up and call it good, but there is truly so much beauty in the detail. When you break it down, art is a bunch of forms and shapes put together through a medium that is meant to invoke some type of internal response. Whether you realize it or not, Construction and design play a major role in your everyday life. How you interact with a space, how the colors on the walls make you feel, the small nuances in design that are seldom noticed but often appreciated; all these things affect you on an internal level, and when you step back and appreciate everything as a whole it really is art. There will always be parts of construction that can feel mundane, but it’s all part of the process. We don’t necessarily need to brand ourselves as artists, but we do want people to understand that construction is an art form. Doing any trade well takes a good amount of skill and mastery just as it does to become a painter or sculptor. We welcome the opportunity to take on any creative challenges and constantly strive to push towards bigger and better things. One of the first really custom projects we did was a shipping container art gallery for the Grassroots Colorado storefront on Santa Fe. Our deadline was to have it done for their 10th-anniversary party, which would also act as the grand unveiling for the gallery. We had the opportunity to be at the party and interact with everyone as they walked through and experienced what we put together. For me personally, it was extremely powerful because although the party was for the store itself, I also felt celebrated for the work we had done. It was nothing less than an inspiration to keep moving forward and keep on creating.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
There are definitely a few staples I always take people to when they come to town. My first stop is usually Confluence Park. I absolutely love the aesthetic of the old Denver Tramway building, now REI, that sits at the point where the city seems to converge on itself. It’s really quite beautiful with the mix of historic buildings with new construction and the tranquility of running water, even though it’s right off several major roads. After that, I’d probably take them down to RiNo. Everyone is always amazed by the color and vibrance over there. I don’t actually know the area too well, so it’s always an adventure to walk around looking at the street art and eventually finding a brewery for a rooftop drink. I also hold a lot of ties to the baker/south broadway area, having lived there for several years. My main goal when people visit is to just hit the streets and see where they take us, there’s so much Denver has to offer.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
We’re a small business, and even though it’s cliche, we really are like a family. This isn’t a single-person effort so I’d first like to thank the entire Infinite Creations team. It really wouldn’t be possible without them. I’d also like to thank all of our clients past and present. Every time we sign a contract, that’s one more person who puts faith in our ability. We get a lot of business from repeat and referral clients and we have the utmost gratitude for their continued support.
