Denver – Buildings Construction

Denver, CO (November 28, 2016) – PCL Construction Services, Inc. has been selected to provide construction management/general contractor services by the City of Boulder for a new Civic Area Park and Plaza in the heart of Boulder.

The new Civic Area Master Plan includes transforming the Civic Area into a unique place that reflects the community’s shared values and its diversity, providing space and programs for people to gather, recreate, eat, learn, deliberate, and innovate. As part of the plan, construction at the Park will include rain gardens and wetland buffers, re-routing of the existing bike and pedestrian paths, unique hardscapes such as recycled cordwood benches and large boulder seating, and planting areas.

The 11th Street Spine and Signature Bridge areas will be replaced and realigned in two sections – one over a rain garden and a longer section over Boulder Creek.

“PCL is pleased to continue our presence in Boulder,” said Lucas Mallory, manager of Special Projects for PCL. “The revitalization of the park will create a space where members of the community can gather, where families can celebrate, and where everyone can enjoy the outdoors.”

Construction of the nearly $7 million project began in November 2016 with completion scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2017.
