A 13.4-acre site, the Kestrel community required extensive civil work. The project consisted of both on and off-site improvements providing connections to surrounding trails, pocket parks, and opportunity for future road connections into the community.MW provided abatement and demolition of an abandoned house on the property and installing pipe for the GoodHue Ditch to run underground, around the south and east sides of the property. The storm and sanitary line tie-ins at the north and south presented the team with some challenges and coordination with our neighbors was key, as these connections had to be made on and/or through the neighboring property. The sanitary connection to the north was over 20’ deep within an RV Storage facility, and the connections to the south were made in South Boulder Road requiring the new infrastructure to be routed through the parking lot of the strip mall.
Other site development and infrastructure completed for this project included overlot grading of the entire site, a large underground detention area for stormwater and a detention pond, relocation and new piping for the 16” water line that feeds the Town of Lafayette (a neighboring town to the east), water, sanitary and sewer throughout the site to serve 18 different buildings for 200 residential units. New public roads, West Hecla Drive and Kaylix Avenue and a private loop road, Kestrel Lane along with sidewalks, pocket parks, and trails connect this dynamic neighborhood to the surrounding community.
