This newly constructed spec house nestled in Denver’s West Highland neighborhood is an urban home that responds to the familiar, traditional materials of the precedents nearby, with a massing of a more contemporary fashion. An open stair on the north façade provides soft light throughout the house. It represents a collaboration between the Owners: a family that desired an elevator addition while under construction, and Clutch Design Studio, to create a subtle and crafted residence.

We are moving right along with the precast erection on this tower in DTC. There are currently 2.5 floors of underground parking finished, with six levels above ground left to complete.
All major basement slab on grade is complete. Our second luffing crane is up and operational, just in time for the precast erection which started this week. The site will undergo significant changes over the next four months as the structure rises from below grade 2 levels, to six levels above. Six levels of steel (office) construction will occur on top of the precast (garage) and is scheduled to start in September.
HP and Clutch visited Rocky Mountain Prestress today to review samples for architectural finish, color, and texture on the custom form liner at exposed foundation walls. The sample was approved as presented. Production to start in a few days.
Grade beams construction continues including formwork, reinforcing, concrete pour, formwork stripped, backfill and drainage mat applied to the outside face. Some of or connector walls have also been cast, propped up with temporary bracing, and covered with waterproofing.
Majority of perimeter drains are installed, and the Sand/Oil interceptor is installed
Core 1 (East Stair) cast-in-place starter walls have been poured and the formwork has been removed. The mat slab has been backfilled up to the top of mat slab.
Core 2 & 3 mat slab framing has been removed and vertical waterproofing is installed and lapped over the top of the mat slab. Drainage board has been installed on the vertical face of the mat slab.
Mat slab for Core 4 is installed, formwork is still in place on its vertical sides. Framing for the cast in place starter walls around the Elevator Shaft is in progress
Over half of the drilled piers are complete. Perimeter drains are also being installed. Void forms and grade beams are being constructed. Some standing water has accumulated, but no more than expected.
