River Point at Sheridan
Submitted by Adolfson & Peterson Construction

River Point at Sheridan is a 125-acre Brownfield redevelopment, revitalizing land that had previously only been useful as a landfill, mitigating unsafe environmental conditions, and converting it into a thriving retail district and golf course for the city of Sheridan and the southwest Denver area.

The redevelopment site is situated on two historic unlined landfills including the Arapco Landfill and Herbertsons Pay Dump. The first phase of the project required removing a substantial amount of this waste to provide a sound subsurface for constructing roads, utilities and buildings.

Before any construction could commence the contractor had to create, submit and get approved a CPO to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The contractor teamed with Tri-County Health Department and the environmental consultant, architect and engineers to create the CPO. Throughout the project A&P worked with the CDPHE and EPA to ensure the team followed the approved CPO plan. Along with the developer’s consultants, A&P worked along side the city of Sheridan and its hired consultants.

The project team completed multiple phases and bid packages, including earthwork and trash removal, asbestos and hazardous materials remediation, reconstructing nine holes of an adjacent golf course, site improvements, and core and shell construction for many of the building tenants.

The Streets at SouthGlenn
Submitted by Alberta Development Partners

The Streets at SouthGlenn is an upscale, urban shopping redevelopment of the former Southglenn Mall in Centennial.

The project employed multiple architects and general contractors in order to break the work load down into manageable components. Five architects and six general contractors worked on different blocks and various aspects of the project. With the significant size and scope of the work, 73 acres that feature one million sq ft of retail and 202 luxury apartments, this allowed for an efficient process. This approach required a very high level of collaboration and communication amongst all team members.

The Town Center design team employed a collection of specialized consultants that were coordinated by SEM Architects as the executive architect for the project. Design concepts were generated in collaborative work sessions between the owner and design team, and those concepts were taken to the construction team for preliminary budgeting and pro forma analysis. The projects were delivered to meet key tenant lease milestones, which required a design-assist effort by the design and construction teams. The projects moved in a fast tracked manner to allow for early procurement of key components, and to allow for tenant occupancy dates that varied by building.

The Streets at SouthGlenn
Submitted by Wilson & Co. Inc.

The Powers Boulevard-Woodmen Road interchange project updated a simple at-grade, signal-controlled intersection to a partial cloverleaf grade-separated interchange in Colorado Springs.

The project improved safety and traffic flow, provided new ramps for better access to and from both roadways, and now allows Powers Boulevard traffic to pass through the area without signals. The project also relocated existing utilities in preparation for future improvements on Woodmen Road. The project had been given a 20-month schedule, which was completed on time, closing lanes only during non-peak travel times.

The Wilson & Co. project team was comprised of veteran transportation personnel. The senior construction management staff had provided CDOT with construction management for over 23 years. The construction management team and design team worked well with each other in resolve all project issues, particularly those requiring redesigns. Their shared philosophy of using constant, open communication and dealing fairly and honestly throughout the project built the project teams credibility with all involved. The experienced team worked as if they had been longtime partners, securing swift resolution in project challenges. The construction team strove for same-day responses to all challenges that could be addressed in-house.
