University of Colorado Hospital – Emergency Department Addition
This project was a 16,000 square foot 5.9 million dollar addition to the existing hospital. The project involved removal of the existing helipad and construction parking lot on the north side of the hospital. Once completed, the site had to be raised dramatically to accommodate the addition at the same level as the ground floor of the existing hospital as well as the 13-foot drop off between the existing hospital and the adjacent street. In addition, retainage of water was accomplished by detaining water on the roof of the addition as well as in three detention ponds throughout the site. This project finished in January 2003.
