In Person: Calhoun Construction's John Hinshaw tackles multimillion-dollar projects, back-country hiking and family in measured steps

May 17, 2017, 3:00pm EDT

The $238 million KFC Yum Center has become a fixture in downtown Louisville, and it also stands prominent in the mind of one of the people behind the construction of the 721,000-square-foot home to University of Louisville basketball, concerts and other events.

John Hinshaw was the was senior project manager for M. A. Mortenson Co., the general contractor for the Yum Center, when the arena was built about a decade ago.

Hinshaw says it is his favorite project, beating out other major sports arenas he helped oversee.

Despite the pressures of building a huge and intricate structure with a fixed deadline, Hinshaw wouldn’t do anything else, fueled by his sports fandom and love for creating.

“I just think building buildings is fun,” Hinshaw said in an interview.

Now, Hinshaw is the president of Louisville-based Calhoun Construction Services Inc.

He joined the company in September 2013 as the operations manager under then-president Kevin Harpring. Hinshaw became the president of the company in January 2016.

An Indianapolis native and big Indiana Pacers fan, Hinshaw jumped at the opportunity to work for Hunt Construction Group in 1997 to help build the Pacers’ then-new arena, Conseco Fieldhouse (now Bankers Life Fieldhouse). He’d graduated from Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering with an emphasis in structures and a bachelor’s degree in construction engineering and management.

That appears to have set a precedent for Hinshaw’s early career and time with Hunt Construction.

He would go on to work on the building of Great American Ball Park for the Cincinnati Reds as a project engineer from fall 1999 to spring 2003.

He then went to work on the construction of the then-named Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, N.C., for the Charlotte Bobcats as a project manager.

He was lured away from Hunt Construction to Louisville by developer Steve Poe to work for Poe Cos. LLC in January 2006.

In 2008, Hinshaw was let go.

It was the height of the Great Recession of 2008 and construction companies were hit particularly hard by the economic downturn.

But Hinshaw had hope despite losing his job.

The Yum Center project broke ground in 2006, but news of the big project had broken much earlier.

With his background in building sports facilities, Hinshaw wanted to be a part of the project when he first heard about the new arena coming to Louisville. It was an obvious opportunity.

To add to the desire to get on-board with the local project, Hinshaw had gotten married to a Louisville native while at working at Poe.

Hinshaw said he knew that he needed a job that would keep him here.

“Louisville had become my adopted hometown,” he said.

As luck would have it, Hinshaw was hired by Minneapolis-based M.A. Mortenson and joined as senior project manager for the Yum Center in 2008.

While all the major projects Hinshaw has worked on have been unique, he said there were some special factors involved with Yum Center.

He said the people he worked with on the project were very talented and that they stuck together in the years since the Yum Center opened in October 2010.

“We had a great team of people on the (Yum Center) project … and a lot of the same people are here at Calhoun,” Hinshaw said.

After the Yum Center work, Hinshaw was approached by Wilhelm Construction Co. Inc. with the prospect of opening and managing a business in Louisville.

Wilhelm had been the concrete contractor on several of the arena projects he had helped to manage. He joined and helped to start Calhoun Construction — which has an office off Poplar Level Road just south of the Watterson Expressway — in 2013.

Of his work on arenas, Hinshaw said, “There is always a tight timeline with an opening event scheduled. That always makes it a pressure situation from start to finish.”

A delay in work on a multimillion dollar project that’s received a great deal of media attention could be catastrophic.

“You set up a project, design a schedule that will allow you to hit the construction milestone and have intermittent milestones to help you know if you are going to make your end goal on time and on budget,” he said.

For fun, Hinshaw takes a hiking trip with his friends from college once a year, every year.

This is no day trip with a picnic. These excursions are often six- to eight-day adventures in the back country that cover anywhere from 40 to 60 miles of wilderness.

This year, Hinshaw and his friends are planning a hike in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

He said that approaching a quest of this magnitude takes the same kind of disciplined planning and goal setting that a multimillion dollar project does.

“You break it down into smaller pieces that you can get your head around and manage it,” Hinshaw said. “A lot of times (while hiking), you have to get from A to B because there is water at B, and no water in between.

“It’s always a huge sense of accomplishment when you’re done. That first beer (after the trip) is very satisfying.”

Even as a parent, Hinshaw takes a similar approach and recognizes that every day presents its own challenges, but that identifying and reaching key milestones helps life make sense and helps establish the pace of where things stand. John and his wife Susan have three children under the age of 10.

“It’s a part of life everyone should experience,” Hinshaw said of being a parent. “It’s your chance to create, to be part of the next generations and hopefully influence people to be good people and be contributing members of the next generation.”

He took some time to answer a few more of our questions:

What is your favorite place for lunch?

Frank’s Meat & Produce on Preston Highway

What advice would you give young or new business leaders?

Pick a field and try to learn every aspect of the field.

What’s the best advice you’ve received?

Stay positive

What is your go-to outdoor spot?

Parklands of Floyds Fork

Is there any one project that you would consider yourself most proud of?

The KFC Yum Center

Biggest pet peeve?

Hearing someone say, “That is not my job.”

What do you listen to while in the car?

Talk radio or the Lithium station on satellite radio.

How do you decompress at the end of the work day?

Walk in my house, and my three kids attack me with all of their energy.

Kentucky Wildcats Football: A look at the $45 million football training facility

By on Jul 21, 2016, 12:15p

One way to help your football program when it’s in a rebuild period is to physically rebuild their facilities, and Kentucky has done just that.

The Wildcats football team now gets to enjoy a state-of-the-art $45 million training facility that totals 100,000 square feet.

The athletics website released an article on it this morning, showing player reactions to seeing it as well as giving us more details. You’ll definitely want to see their reactions, as they’re something similar to a kid on Christmas morning.

That new weight room is massive, and is sure to accommodate every player for team workouts.

As for the locker room, it features ventilated lockers that will keep the room fresh, and those lockers have cup holders and phone chargers, both essentials for today’s college student. It also comes with the massive media board that you saw in the center back wall, along with a couple of TVs.

The film room looks quite a bit like an actual movie theater as you could see from the video, and it also sounds like one. The room’s technology features high-quality sound and video so the players can make the most of their film sessions (they even get the THX audio intro).

Those aren’t the only great parts though, as this new facility features a beautiful lobby with a massive TV, smaller meeting rooms for position groups, a team dining area with “Chef Marty,” and even a barber shop (yes, a barber shop).

But all the upgrades aren’t just for the players. There’s been plenty of work done to make the coaches feel right at home as well. Head Coach Mark Stoops has a new office overlooking the practice field, and there’s a new meeting room for coaches and other staff.

Perhaps the best part about this first unveiling is that several of the players expressed their gratitude to AD Mitch Barnhart and University President Eli Capilouto as they began to take in their new training home. It’s good to see that they’re showing thanks.

Now many will question whether or not this place is going to make the team play better, and I’d say that’s a good question, but I’d also answer yes. In the SEC, every school has state-of-the-art football training facilities and equipment, and if you’re not ahead of the curve you’ll quickly find yourself falling behind.

This facility will allow Kentucky’s team to be at its best. The new weight room gives them the best place to get stronger, and the new meeting and film rooms will allow them to relax in comfort as they study up on their own strengths and weaknesses, as well as opponents’ strengths and weaknesses.

On top of that, the new training rooms and locker rooms are going to make them right at home in this massive facility. Not only will it help current players, but it’ll be a huge recruiting tool for Mark Stoops, letting potential Wildcats see the incredible facilities that they could have at their disposal should they come to Lexington.

Heck, it’s already paid benefits with the recent camps that UK hosted this past weekend. There were a host of four-star prospects and many players holding high-major offers. It was called by some the most talented group of recruits UK has ever had, so if nothing else, the new facility is helping draw elite recruits to Lexington. Just getting great players to visit has been a tough ordeal for Kentucky Football in the past, but not anymore.

With the renovations made to Commonwealth Stadium previously, and now this massive new training facility, Kentucky football is looking better than ever. Hopefully these new and renovated buildings are a sign of more success to come for the program.

More details and unveilings are set to come over the next few days.

100 Years of Tradition for Chi Omega

Founded in 1895 at the University of Arkansas, Chi Omega is the largest women’s fraternal organization in the world with over 320,000 initiates, 178 collegiate chapters, and over 240 alumnae chapters. Throughout Chi Omega’s long and proud history, the Fraternity has brought its members unequaled opportunities for personal growth and development.

“Chi Omega looks back on its accomplishments with tremendous pride. Let us build on what we have accomplished, joining together the passion and love of Chi Omega to soar into our future.”

~Melanie Shain, National President 1992-1998

Their five founders were a small band of young women who, with the help of local dentist Dr. Charles Richardson, established the secrets, symbolism, and ritual that now bind together over 310,000 women from 174 collegiate chapters and more than 240 alumnae chapters.

Chi Omega is a sisterhood that provides a network of friends and lifelong development for collegiate and alumnae members. Chi Omega is committed to: personal integrity, excellence in academic and intellectual pursuits, inter-generational participation, community service, leadership opportunities, and social enrichment.

University of Kentucky Football Training Center

The new $45 million football training facility appears to be every bit the glittering “one-stop shop” the university promised. The students will now be able to academically do their work, while having the ability to train and they’ll be able to get most with their food within the facility as the university continues to make a commitment to improving all facilities…this is a significant step for the University of Kentucky football program.

Within this vast expansion, Calhoun Construction Services is serving as the drywall and ceiling subcontractor within the 120,000 square foot facility for the University of Kentucky.
