DCS served as owner’s representative performing comprehensive project management for this 30-acre, six-building, non-profit bond project. DCS became involved initially to provide leadership during the 80% CD review and was later selected as owner’s representative, beating out larger national firms. Throughout the 20-month construction, DCS maintained an on-site office working directly with the contractor and proactively reviewed submittals and contract documents to resolve common issues and conflicts before they caused delays. DCS managed eight prime contracts: architecture and engineering, landscape architecture, water features and irrigation, geotechnical, communications, audio/visual, commissioning, and construction.
Notable components of the project and six-building campus include:
- Corporate offices with state of the art board room and conference facility, and below grade mechanical (boilers, chiller, ice storage and air handlers) rooms.
- Additional buildings included warehouse, records & other cold storage, indoor vehicle storage, vehicle maintenance, fabrication, carpentry and grounds maintenance shops, and a soils laboratory.
- Exterior features included a 7 ac/ft irrigation pond and specialty pump system for both turf and crop irrigation, and the interpretive water feature that is a replica of the Colorado Big Thompson project.
- DCS also facilitated and expedited resolution of a significant financial dispute that developed during the close-out phase of the project without involving mediators, arbitrators or litigation.
