This five-acre sloped site required 20,000 square feet of retaining wall and the import of 17,000 yards of soil to bring the site up to a buildable level. Bound by Interstate 25, Nevada Avenue, Monument Creek and the UCHealth Grandview Hospital to the south, construction site access was a challenge, particularly since safe access to the adjacent hospital was necessary at all times. Virtual Design and Construction with drone technology was used to support the development of the construction logistics plan. The drone was used to photo-document the progression of the site fill, structural fill, retaining wall and site utilities.
