Project Updates: Near and Far
Where are they now and where will they be in the near future? Two great questions for several BRS projects, including: Sammamish Community & Aquatic Center, Yellowstone National Park Canyon Lodging Redevelopment, UCCS Student Health & Wellness Center in Colorado Springs and Metro Caring Hunger Relief Center in Denver.
The Sammamish Community Aquatic Center is starting to come out of the ground! The construction of the underground stormwater vault is almost complete; what an amazing structure that nobody will ever see. The building is starting to take shape with some of the concrete shear walls going up.
After a fast and furious summer of construction, mother nature has swept in to reclaim the Canyon Lodging Redevelopment Project at Yellowstone National Park. The job was officially closed this past Monday as roads were unpassable. It’s hard to believe that in 6 short months this site saw the erection of three 35,000 square foot lodges. Each lodge was built from 54 modular units that were erected on site over the course of two months. Roofs and weatherproofing were finished without a minute to spare. The jobsite will reopen in April and the construction teams hope to have the first three buildings open by the 4th of July, so make your reservations now!
BRS recently attended the groundbreaking ceremony to kick off construction of the University of Colorado – Colorado Springs – Recreation and Wellness Center. The 50,000 square foot addition to the existing campus recreation center will house Student Health and Counseling Services plus additional gym, fitness and weights spaces for the constantly expanding student population at UCCS. On track for LEED® gold certification, the addition will use skylights and clerestory windows to light the gym and fitness areas so that that electric lighting will not need to be used during daylight hours. We are excited to see the design begin to take shape and come to fruition.
GH Phipps has made great progress on the Metro Caring project. The building is enclosed and all site work was installed before the onset of winter weather. Crews are now working inside the building completing interior partitions, finishes and installing utilities. We hope to see the green house installation commence in December: Metro Caring plans to use this as a demonstration garden and grow food for patrons all year long.
