The highly anticipated Platte 15 multi-use mid-rise structure, located at 15th and Platte streets in Denver, has reached its final depth of 28 ft. below ground surface. The installation of the temporary dewatering system by TerraFirma Earth Technologies is complete, and is in the maintenance phase. The General Contractor Adolfson & PetersonConstruction has completed the excavation and is currently pouring the rat slab and installing the waterproofing for the foundation.

Two Firsts for Platte 15:Besides being Denver’s first mid-rise building made from cross-laminated timber (CLT) and offering a reduced carbon footprint, Platte 15 is the site of a rarely utilized means of groundwater control, known as ejector well dewatering.“Though more costly up front, in the long run, this unusual use of ejector dewatering wells in controlling the ground water within soils typical to downtown Denver, has proven more reliable, and more cost efficient,” said David Giles, president of TerraFirma Earth Technologies.

“Usually when we pump water from the ground,” explains Dave Giles, “we pipe it directly to a storm sewer drain. However, there was concern that this ground water was contaminated from three sources: chemicals from a dry cleaning business, hydrocarbons from a previously demolished fuel station, and dissolved metals, which occur naturally in the earth. By isolating the supplemental dewatering to just those few areas needing it, we saved precious time and reduced costs. Also, by limiting supplemental dewatering efforts to just those few areas, we reduced the required amount of groundwater to be pumped, thereby reducing the risk of pulling in contaminants identified on adjacent properties during the investigative phase of the project.”

Brian Lawrenson, GE Johnson’s Superintendent, added, “The Project is situated in the heart of Cherry Creek, with very little or no laydown. TerraFirma worked with us during the logistical challenges we faced daily. Due to the complexity of the site excavation and ever-changing conditions, GE Johnson had TerraFirma install two areas of vacuum-well assemblies to provide additional localized dewatering. TerraFirma reacted quickly to these unforeseen conditions and was able to minimize the impact to the construction schedule.”
