Powers Boulevard Design-Build

Colorado Springs, Colorado

Tsiouvaras Simmons Holderness teamed with Edward Kraemer and Sons (EKS) on this $11 million project to complete the Powers Boulevard Design-Build Project. TSH was the prime design consultant for the construction of two miles of Powers Boulevard, including six new bridges and over 20,000 square feet of retaining walls. The project entailed new construction of four lanes plus shoulders to complete the new portion of Powers Blvd. Drainage elements included preparation of the Storm water Management Plan and final water quality features and ponds. TSH worked closely with EKS to develop details that would increase the speed of construction as the original schedule was to complete construction in 120 days.
