Teamwork with the leadership of AP resulted in a highly functional safety training campus that will help meet the needs of our community for years to come.
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) November 02, 2016
The Associated Builders and Contractors, a premier construction association representing the merit shop construction industry, awarded the City of Aurora’s Public Safety Training Center (CAPSTC) project the 2016 regional Excellence in Construction award for an institutional building between $10 and $25 million. The 23-acre campus consisted of seven different projects to be designed, built and integrated together in a short timeframe.
A 1920’s themed gala of industry personnel recognized outstanding construction projects in various categories completed this last year in the Rocky Mountain Region. CAPSTC’s first place honor was given by judges based on factors such as safety, implementing innovations, and overcoming challenges.
During the submittal review process, ABC’s evaluation committee noted the perfect safety record of the project, an extraordinary accomplishment of having no safety incidents on the large and complex project.
The design-build team with Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) consisted of Design-build Architect Studiotrope, Civil Engineer Bowman Vision Land and Burn Building Specialist ELA Engineers, along with BCD Architect Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture, BCD Planning Architect RDG Planning & Design and Civil Engineer Martin/Martin.
Beyond the expected complexities of this project, the design-build team faced extraordinary measures, such as removing inert bombs from the site, experiencing a main access site closure due to an over-booked air show and keeping all personnel safe when a tornado touched down. The completed joint-training campus now serves Aurora’s police and fire departments to be more effective as a team when responding to emergency scenes, such as the 2012 Aurora theater shootings.
“Throughout the project the design team worked with the City and its Consultants to design and build a state-of-the-art, functional facility. Teamwork with the leadership of AP resulted in a highly functional safety training campus that will help meet the needs of our community for years to come,” stated James Brown, P.E., Project Construction Manager for City of Aurora.
