City Heights Residence Hall - University of Colorado Denver

Hunt Electric was chosen as a design-build contractor to collaborate with other partners on the project and help meet the project’s compressed schedule. We consulted numerous entities within the university during the design phase to understand the owner’s needs and find innovative solutions to address them. With Hunt as a member of the team, design was able to take place simultaneously with construction.

This 555-bed, seven-story residence hall is the first of its kind on campus, and building it required a creative approach. To decrease congestion and accelerate construction, we alternated work between two sections of the building and collaborated with other trades to assemble different sections of the project separately and connect them seamlessly at the end.

We used this same collaborative approach with the Telecom/Data Backbone, Fire Alarm, Security, and Emergency Power distribution systems. It enabled us to identify and coordinate the installation of all these systems so that the underground tie-ins were perfectly sequenced with construction preventing project delays and interruptions to existing campus operations.

The general contractor, JE Dunn, summarized our performance on the project this way, “Hunt’s field operations executed the work with grit, dedication, passion, and excellence that resulted in an exceptional client experience.”
