Senior Civil Engineer / Project Engineer, 04/2000
to 06/2007 MATRIX DESIGN GROUP – Denver, CO & Colorado Springs,
Responsible for the successful design and coordination of critical transportation components of urban infrastructure and mixed-use land redevelopment projects in Denver and Colorado Springs;
coordinated with developers, consultants, reviewing agencies, and contractors to facilitate roadway geometrics, major utility placement, and special urban design treatments catering to pedestrian-oriented areas.
Street Reconstruction and Widening (Prairie Gateway Infrastructure), Commerce
City, CO: provided preliminary
layout alternatives for the urban 4-mile arterial roadway backbone of the
adjacent 917-acre Prairie Gateway Development, a mixed-use redevelopment (utilizing
part of the former Rocky Mountain Arsenal property) featuring a 20,000-seat
Coordinated design-sensitive elements that included minimizing impacts of the widened and
reconstructed 4 to 6 lane roadway to adjacent
remnant prairie, as well as to nearby residential neighborhood frontage roads.
State Highway (SH) 7 and Washington Street Reconstruction and Widening (Larkridge Retail Development), Thornton, CO: assisted with preparation of roadway and
utility improvement plans for over a mile of Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and City of Thornton 4 to 6-lane arterials, respectively, to accommodate ultimate build-out traffic from the adjacent 240-acre outdoor and retail shopping/dining complex. Critical
design element featured providing interchange setback requirements for adjacent
land development project, to accommodate future CDOT design/construction of
cloverleaf loop on-ramp, as part of improvements to the nearby Interstate 25 interchange.
29th Avenue Roadway and Utility Improvements (Stapleton Redevelopment), Denver, Colorado: prepared roadway improvement plans and assisted with utility plans for almost a mile of 29th Avenue, one of the first urban collector roadways designed as part of the 4,700-acre mixed-use, master planned redevelopment of the former Stapleton Airport property. Design included utilizing design vehicle turning templates to layout street intersection bulb-outs catering to an urban, pedestrian oriented 'Town Center' area.
Design Engineer, 01/1997
to 04/2000 BRW / DAMES & MOORE / URS CORPORATION – Denver,
