Cordillera Civil Engineering and Project Management Services
Cordillera is a luxury resort community atop the mountains in Edwards, Colorado located in the Squaw Creek Valley, seven miles west of Beaver Creek.Project Highlights are:
- Environmental Impact Statement
- Wastewater reuse analysis
- Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling
- Electrical engineering services
- Innovative design solutions
The central theme for Cordillera has always been high quality, low density development with an acute sensitivity towards preserving the natural character of the site. In fact, all of Cordillera, with about 3,100 acres and 856 dwellings at buildout, is one of the lowest density communities in Eagle County. Almost half of the property is open space and wildlife corridors which Cordillera has insured will be maintained in perpetuity.
RTW has provided specialized civil, environmental and electrical engineering services to Cordillera for its major expansion. RTW's services have included planning, detailed design, and construction management. Our planning services included engineering support for the Cordillera Master Plan, Environmental Impact Statement, Sketch Plan and Preliminary Plans.
RTW provided final design services for sewerline interceptors and collection system sewerlines, water transmission main and distribution system piping, potable-water storage tanks, drainage, stormwater detention, soil erosion and sediment control designs, water well completion, electrical and control systems. The mountain terrain and sensitive environmental areas such as wetlands, wildlife management corridors, elk calving areas, and scenic view preservation areas, have all been incorporated in successful design projects.
Requirements for energy dissipation, specialized maintenance access, high line pressures and unique construction techniques resulted in an innovative design solution which was successfully implemented under budget. RTW has also provided project management and construction phase services including CPM scheduling and overall project management, multiple contract coordination, resident field engineering, and construction contract administration. All budgets and schedules were met in this successful and exceptional development.
