EVstudio had the pleasure of designing the foundation for an elevated pedestrian pathway in Evergreen that links the Downtown business zone with Evergreen Lake and the miles of trails that branch out from this network.
Despite heavy rains (and sometimes snow), the General Contractor, Goodland Construction, managed to drive the 8 steel H-piles and pour the 2 concrete pier caps that EVstudio designed. EVstudio also coordinated with Rocky Mountain Prestress for the design of the precast bridge components as well. RMP set all of the precast pieces in two nights, and the trail was erected in a very short time.
Railings, also designed by EVstudio, are being erected by Bear Excavating, and we hope to see the trail open to the public by the end of May.
This was a fun project for us to work on as we were able to work with a number of different agencies and professionals to put together a great community project. EVstudio worked in partnership with the Downtown Evergreen Economic District and the Evergreen Park and Recreation District. The project was funded through a Great Outdoors Colorado grant, thousands of volunteer hours and pro-bono services from EVstudio and CenterPoint Integrated Solutions, the Project Manager for the project.
