AURARIA HIGHER EDUCATION CENTER 5TH STREET PARKING GARAGE

The primary focus of the new Fifth Street Parking Garage is to serve the needs of the growing institutions located on the campus of the Auraria Higher Education Center:

The primary focus of the new Fifth Street Parking Garage is to serve the needs of the growing institutions located on the campus of the Auraria Higher Education Center: Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and University of Colorado, Denver

At the western edge of the campus is a new 307,500 SF, four-story parking structure with 926 parking spaces. The ground floor is dedicated to 12,000 SF of retail space.

The retail space and garage are designed to LEED Gold criteria.

RLB provided the design team with milestone estimating, starting with an independent conceptual-level estimate of construction cost, followed by more detailed estimates at the design development phases.

RLB was also asked to join in the CM/GC review process, which led to an independent assessment of ten proposals for the construction of the parking garage. We then reconciled with the selected CM/GC at the schematic design and design development milestones, to ensure the owner was getting a fair price.
