Swinerton Tops Out Design-Build Construction on West Rail Line Parking Structure

Swinerton Builders is thrilled to announce the topping out of the design-build RTD FasTracks Lakewood - Wadsworth Parking Structure. Located in Lakewood, this 1026-space, four-story parking structure will serve bus and light rail riders when the West Rail Line opens April 26, 2013.  Swinerton Builders leads the design-build team which also includes Structural Engineer S.A. Miro; Architect Gensler; M/E/P/F Engineer BCER Engineering; and Parking Design Parking Consultants, LLC.

Swinerton’s commitment to diversity begins with an unwavering dedication to partnering with small and historically under-utilized businesses. For this project, the firm has teamed  with several local Small Business Enterprise/Disadvantage Business Enterprise firms, including: Civil Technology, Inc; Three Sixty Design; GeoCal; HCL Engineering & Surveying, LLC; Interactive Elements Incorporated; Pinyon Environment Engineering Resources, Inc; Sky-to-Ground, LLC and JA Group.  More than 30 percent of the subcontracting firms on the project are small business enterprises. 

The parking structure is designed to maximize sustainable features such as low water-use landscaping, stormwater quality, bicycle parking, and provisions for future solar panels and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.  Swinerton is recycling material during construction and has implemented a site management plan for erosion control and to contain all construction debris.

The project broke ground mid-March and will be complete in April 2013. Swinerton is proud to be involved with this project and part of building a better Colorado.
