While the Healthcare District of Denver is home to a constellation of hospitals and healthcare facilities, it is also a bustling area of the city that features restaurants, retail stores, businesses, and soon, two new high-end multi-family residential buildings. The Broadstone Uptown project will make use of a currently empty lot at the corner of 18th and Marion Street and will bring much needed residential units to the growing city. The project brings together local architects, engineers, and commercial concrete contractors in Denver and promises to introduce over two hundred studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom apartments to the neighborhood, as well as below grade parking for each of the two buildings.
Denver has experienced a huge boom in its population over the past several years, and city officials and local developers have worked diligently to answer the call for more housing to accommodate all the current and potential residents of the city. In 2018, reports concluded that Denver needed 32,000 new units to keep pace with the city’s rapid growth and so construction cranes and newly erected high-rise multi-family residential buildings have become ubiquitous features of the cityscape. The Broadstone Uptown project will be a welcome addition to Denver’s housing stock and is slated to begin construction in July 2019.
The development team for The Broadstone Uptown project includes PR III Broadstone Uptown Developers, Enayat Schneider Smith Engineering, and Shear Adkins Rockmore Architects who designed the nearly identical, adjacent nine-story residential buildings. The Conco Companies worked closely with these teams for over a year in the planning phase and won the contract for concrete services due to the strong working relationships built in that process and their competitive pricing. Conco is known for keeping large scale projects on time and budget, two necessary characteristics in the race to build more residential units in Denver. The scope of work for Conco’s turnkey structural concrete services include mat slab foundations, slab on grade, shotcrete foundation walls, cast-in-place columns, elevator and stair core walls in two locations in each building, elevated post-tensioned structural slabs and Epicore topping slabs for the cast-in-place rooftop slabs. Conco will be partnering with a local subcontractor to provide Denver concrete pumping and placing, reinforcing, formwork, and finishing as well as construction trucking.
