DBIA: Education Program

Please join us for an afternoon of education in Design-Build through the lens of real-world case studies.

Option Q. The value of Design/Build with multiple owner influences and a critical timeline.
Presented by Beck Group

The City of Westminster was required to construct a 600 stall parking structure by July 24, 2016 or face $10,000 per day delay claims from the Regional Transportation District (RTD). Time was of the essence and with multiple stakeholders, the task of building the parking deck on a vacant parcel surrounded by industrial and residential lots, adjacent to an active freight rail (BNSF) and future RTD commuter rail platform, the City utilized a design/build contract method to achieve success. This presentation will provide an overview of the project, but more importantly how anyone can improve their coordination and communications skills when under time and financial pressure.

Up, Up and Away! Airports Take off Using Design Build
Presented by Hensel Phelps

Aviation is a growth industry. Airports around the nation are expanding and renovating both on the airside and the landside. Renovating an existing airport is a complex, time consuming and expensive process. Many airports around the nation are looking to Design-Build or some variation thereof to deliver their projects in a timely and cost-effective manner. The presentation will be a case study of different airports around the nation, and how they are approaching project delivery, some using design-build, others not. Case studies will include the Eagle County Airport, Denver International Airport, San Francisco International Airport, Nashville and Los Angeles International Airport. Variations on the project delivery approach will be discussed and the challenges associated with airport design and construction considered. A brief presentation on each of the case studies will be followed by a panel discussion.

Sponsored by Adrian Kinney, Denver’s Mid-Century Real Estate Expert, this event will take place on Tuesday, July 316:00 to 8:00 PM at the private residence of Josh Robinson2499 S. Colorado Blvd.

About the tour
6:00 to 6:45 PM
– Walking tour of The Wellshire Arms with Josh Robinson
Tour the exterior of the building with a discussion on the design principals utilized at the
The Wellshire Arms, including a brief conversation on how to deal with modifications and sympathetic alterations to modern buildings.

6:45 to 8:00 PM– Unit tour + discussion, rooftop tour + exhibit
Take a closer look at the building and see how a modern architect, Josh Robinson of KEPHART, lives today at The Wellshire Arms, with a guided tour of the property and discussion by KEPHART community:: planning :: architecture.

About the residence
Standing tall along Colorado Boulevard is the legacy project of developer Vincent Rieger. Built in 1962, The Wellshire Arms was a visionary design that pushed the boundaries of what apartment living, and development, could be. Each unit features open floor plans, walk-in closets, floor to ceiling glass and nearly 300 square feet of outdoor living space. The Wellshire is a testament to the timeless principles of modern design and the developer who was willing to take risks and think outside the box.

Parking & transportation: Street parking is available in the neighborhood and along East Dickenson Place. There is currently no on-site parking due to construction. As always, we encourage the use of public transportation, Lyft or Uber – thank you.
