About Us

We've Merged!

Matt Simones with Caritas Builders and Jake Tupy with St. Vincent Contracting have teamed up and merged!  With the experience of two outstanding builders, Moderno Companies offers the latest in fresh, up-to-date designs and trends with superior, trusted craftsmanship.  The energy is high and the vision is clear - we're bringing Modern to the South Metro.

Matt Simones

Hailing from the Elko-New Market area, Matt began his construction experience in high school framing houses. He continued to diversify within the field and has now been a builder for fifteen years. With his knowledge of the industry, communication, and commitment to our projects, its common to see Matt thoroughly explaining the build process to clients in ways that are easy to understand.

When he's not on the job, Matt is busy tending to life with seven children and spending time with his eleven siblings and 40-some nieces and nephews. Matt and his wife Michelle enjoy spending time outdoors with the family and at their cabin. He also makes it a priority to give back and is highly involved within his church and the community - taking on projects that have contributed to over $100,000 for Christian education initiatives.

Jake Tupy

Jake's construction journey began through his father Garry Tupy - a prominent builder and land developer in the South Metro for 30 years. At the ripe age of 8 Jake was running skid loaders, cleaning houses, and shortly after tackled the job of project supervisor working closely with subcontractors gaining an understanding of construction from all perspectives. His calm and honest nature along with his can-do attitude and over 20 years experience brands Jake a force in the building industry in the South Metro. 

Jake resides in the Elko-New Market area with his wife, Rachel, and their three daughters. Jake is very active in outreach and volunteering. He leads the area Knights of Columbus Council and with Matt contribute greatly to community efforts. He enjoys traveling with his family and hanging out with his twelve siblings, nieces, and nephews.
