Scope of Work:
Fiore & Sons, Inc., successfully negotiated the Candelas Filing 2 and 4 project in December of 2013 and started work in January of 2014. The Candelas development is located north of Hwy 72 and east of Hwy 93 in Arvada, Colorado. The 750 acre site was divided into 4 different filings. Fiore & Sons, Inc., started in filing 2, moving over 5 million cubic yards of dirt and constructing the half mile of drainage channel. Filing 4 also had approximately 5 million cubic yards of dirt with nearly a mile of drainage channel. With the development being constructed in the middle of a major drainage, the project presented several challenges. Relocating the existing drainage channel, earthwork crews would place fill exceeding 100’ while performing remedial work for landslides, ground water, and the constant drainage flowing through the site. The 32 million dollar project should be completed Fall 2016.
