Denver Art Museum Expansion

JFSA provided planning, civil engineering design and permitting services for this high-profile project. The project involved the construction of the new wing of the Denver Art Museum, a cultural center parking garage, and mixed-use multifamily residential buildings. The site grading design was modeled in 3D in order to accurately project multiple site planes, so that the site followed the angular theme of the buildings. The porous landscape detention ponds are aesthetically landscaped without any drainage structures protruding above the ground, allowing sculpture gardens to be incorporated in these areas, as well as creating sustainable water quality features.

The project entailed site/civil design, in multiple phases, for drainage, grading operations with erosion control measures, utility infrastructure systems, roadway design and parking improvements. JFSA also provided a drainage report and plan, detailing glycol detention and traditional detention ponds, large scale drainage channels, culverts, and drop structures. An intricate diversion structure system was engineered to channel storm runoff into the glycol ponds in the winter months when de-icing operations were happening, and to channel storm runoff into the traditional detention pond in the summer months when de-icing operations have ceased.

Project Highlights:
  • Mixed-use Airport Cargo Development
  • Glycol containment and diversion structure design

Westwood Community Center

Denver, Colorado
Westwood Community Cente

JFSA took the lead on this new Community Center project and was the prime consultant to Denver Housing Authority (DHA). As well as managing the project, JFSA provided consulting services in the area of surveying, civil engineering, and structural engineering. Subconsultants to JFSA for the project included Architecture Services, Landscape Architecture Services, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Geotechnical, Underground Utility Locates and Cost Estimating. Construction Administration Services were also included as part of the project.

JFSA provided complete civil design services. These services included overall utility and grading plan documents and cost estimates to supplement and support the City of Centennial planning commission SDP submittal process, GESC plan and report preparation for the city as well as the final construction documents for supportive infrastructure improvements. These infrastructure improvements consisted of a new sanitary sewer service line, removal and re-construction of the courtyard area drain and storm sewer system and grading plans for the new northwest and southwest plaza area expanded entranceways.

DIA Commercial Vehicle Facility Expansion

The Commercial Vehicle Facility (CVF) expansion project consisted of designing and constructing a new addition for the existing CVF building, and remodeling of the existing building. JFSA provided Civil and Structural Engineering services for this project.

The civil engineering portion of this project achieved two goals. First, to re-grade around the entire perimeter of the building in order to resolve the numerous drainage issues currently damaging the existing building. The second goal met, was the need to collect and utilize any site water run-off to irrigate the new landscaping vegetation.

JFSA served as the civil engineer and surveyor for the Littleton Historical Museum renovation in Littleton, Colorado. The proposed museum expansion consisted of the demolition of approximately 8,875 sf of existing building and the construction of 32,175 sf of new and renovated building, while matching the existing finished floor elevation in order to keep the historic rock wall that constitutes the front façade of the building. Civil engineering services for the site included proposed sewer service, water service, storm drainage inlets, and a 96-stall parking lot on top of the existing parking lot.
