The foundation walls are going up! As the walls go up you can see the footprint of the building starting to take shape. You can start to visualize the walkout layout and where the upper parking lot will be on the east side.
Here is some of the progress that occurred over the last month:
Foundation tall walls are almost completed 1 more wall to complete then they will start grade beams
Dry utilities, electric and temporary power is in
Storm Sewer is 75% complete
The sanitary sewer is 100% complete with utility contractor
Water main is 90% complete
Underground lighting is being trenched for upper east parking lot
Conduits are run for fiber cable and Comcast
Start trenching and sleeving for asphalt and parking lot

We appreciate the pictures they have shared with us and all the work they have completed over the last month. Below are a few highlights:

Construction continues amid the COVID19 pandemic and safety precautions are being taken on the site. We are working closely with the City of Aurora for their inspections as they are currently running remotely with a skeleton crew. In addition, the team is working to anticipate the impact on the subcontractors and fabrication of steel. We will continue to update you on the progress of the construction and hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time.
You can see some changes taking place on the land! If you have driven by recently, you probably noticed the fence has gone up and movement is occurring onsite. Below is a list of highlights over the last month:
Mobilization onsite has begun.
The permitter fencing was installed.
The final civil drawing were submitted to the City of Aurora engineering department.
The Water Quality Control Division of Colorado has reviewed our application and submission for the YMCA Recreation Center at Wheatlands facility and determined that it qualifies for coverage under the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. They issued us a permit certification, which was issued under the Colorado Water Quality Control Act on January 22, 20202.
Several logistics were sorted out between owner, contractor and architect.
All RFI’s for steel detailing were received.
Sub contractors are being hired.
The City of Aurora storm water permit was submitted and the bond for fiscal security deposit for the City of Aurora storm water permit has been submitted.
Xcel is partnering with us to put in temporary power to the site.
We appreciate the communities support! We want to include the community as much as possible during this process and will continue to brainstorms ways to keep everyone involved and informed. Ideas include taking more pictures of the site as construction begins and during each phase. Additional ideas included having onsite visits and signing of the final beam when the building is near completion. More to come but we are thinking of you!
