The Legacy Fitzsimons Parking Garage is the central parking piece of an apartment home community in east Denver. This apartment complex is being built across the street from the Anschutz Medical Campus which is home to University of Colorado Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Colorado, and the VA Hospital. The garage has apartments abutting its north and south elevations while the east and west elevations of the garage are exposed and will be clad with metal fin work. This garage is comprised of 504 prestressed spandrels, beams, double tees, columns, and wall panels. The garage will have private stalls for the apartment residents while also having some interior storage capacity for bicycles and other areas of storage. The roof of the garage has an amenity deck built onto the precast superstructure which will give an elevated patio for the residents to enjoy.
FDG was heavily involved in this project early on to help develop the garage in the best way possible for the precast. Wells Concrete allowed FDG to attend the AOC meetings and shape this project well ahead of the drafting and engineering effort beginning. We feel having this opportunity really showcases FDG’s ability to assist in utilizing the precast system most efficiently while allowing the design team to arrive at an acceptable design solution. This success was high-lighted in an email from our customer upon completion of the project:
This week celebrates another successful completion of a project. The Legacy at Fitzsimons parking garage included 504 pieces of precast concrete. Our field crews sustained nearly a 13ppd average for the duration of the project. These successful projects can be attributed to an entire team effort.
This project came to fruition with Scott Maclay continuing a relationship that was developed with Catamount Constructors on a previous project. I’m certain that everyone’s performance will allow our relationship to grow stronger and lead to additional projects with the Catamount team.
FDG and Tom Gabbert drove this successful design and continues to provide premier consulting in our industry. Pete, Moises and Dan displayed rock solid production including the casting of columns as tall as 58’ feet!
Our field crews once again displayed the safety, quality and professionalism that makes Wells Concrete the leader of sub-contractors on any job site. Virtually this entire project was erected with the additional constraints of COVID-19. The leadership in Logan and Frank on site demonstrated the ability to adjust and continue to produce successful outcomes in the face of adversity.
Thanks to the Wells team for the continued relationship! We look forward to doing more work with you in the very near future!
