First Aurora Commerce Building D
The 5 building industrial project, First Aurora Commerce Center, is near the Denver International Airport and Lithko is currently working on Building D. Our scope includes foundations, slab on grade, tilt-up walls, and site paving. There are 181 tilt- up panels ranging frim 130,000 lbs. to 205,000 lbs.
We started this warehouse project in November 2018 and the concrete construction needs to conclude by June 2019. Our team has worked through the worst winter Denver has seen in the last 12 years, including the notorious “Bomb Cyclone”. Despite having 88 weather impact days and 20 additional days of lost time, we have continued to go above and beyond to meet the June deadline. Detailed planning was essential to ensure we took advantage of good weather days, even working through the snow and rain. We constantly utilized blanketing and ground heaters prior to and following our concrete placements. Due to the winter conditions, it was even more crucial for us to meet the schedule to ensure our customer does not incur any additional costs. Our Denver team will successfully wrap this project up in June 2019.
