Berg Fine Tunes Facilities for Research Center
Berg’s Colorado crews celebrated the sweet smell of success as a triumphant project–that is now a force in the fight against childhood diabetes–came to a conclusion in the Denver area.
A Dunn Deal—Berg Wraps Up Diabetes Center with J.E. Dunn Construction
In 2005 The Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes opened the doors of its new home at the Fitzsimons campus—Colorado’s $4.3-billion “square mile of life sciences” that has become the launch pad, hub and focus for the biotechnology industry in the Rock Mountain region. The $34-million facility provides care for children and adults with Type I diabetes, as well as research of the disease.
Alan Stout, Berg’s Rocky Mountain regional manager, touted the efforts of Berg’s field forces, “Our crews expertly navigated the installation of medium-voltage service under a main access street on the Fitzsimons campus that remained open while we were working,” he said. Other noteworthy aspects included laboratory tables that required custom electrical fittings, Class A finishes throughout and condensed schedule that mandated building both Phase I and Phase II concurrently.
“It was an incredibly smooth project—thanks in part to Berg’s ‘get-it-done’ attitude and proactive efforts to minimize downtime and disruption to the University. It’s been a real pleasure working with them.”—Mike Tilbury, J.E. Dunn Construction.
