Pinkard provided complete CM/GC services for the City of Commerce City's Bison Ridge Recreation Center and related infrastructure/roadway improvements.
The recreation center is approximately 108,000 square feet with an indoor leisure pool and support spaces, aerobics, catering kitchen, gymnastics, weight and fitness, gymnasium, community room/meeting space, required building support spaces and administrative spaces.
Roadway and infrastructure scope includes:
Improvements to E. 112th Avenue intersections at Highway 2 and Potomac Avenue;
Widening of the Highway 2 bridge over the O'Brian Canal, Highway 2 lane widening; and new roadway to connect E. 112th Avenue and Potomac Street;
Extensive improvements to Potomac Street, including new water and irrigation main lines, gas main lines, converting overhead power lines to underground, adding underground 100-pair CenturyLink pair-bonded copper Internet cable, Comcast conduit, storm drainage, a multi-use path and landscaping.
Pinkard is also providing complete infrastructure for the new recreation center, which sits on 25.5 acres of farm land at E. 112th Avenue and Potomac Street. Leveling the site required approximately 30,000 yards of imported fill.
Pinkard is constructing a multi-modal roadway to provide primary access to the recreation center.
Fellsberg-Holt-Ullevig is providing road and infrastructure design, and Sink Combs Dethlefs is the recreation center architect. Flatiron Constructors is constructing the roadwork; CH2M is the city's representative.
The project area is in the northern portion of Commerce City, generally bounded by Highway 2 on the north, E. 112th Avenue on the south, Potomac Street on the west, and private property on the east.
