Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed
Faced with a compressed timeline and a project without a known budget, the owner selected design build to rebuild what was lost in the Royal Gorge Fire.
The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, a vital economic engine for southern Colorado, was devastated by the Royal Gorge Fire on June 11, 2013. Faced with a compressed timeline and a project without a known budget, the owner selected The Beck Group to rebuild the park’s facilities through a fully integrated design-build delivery model. In less than 13 months from award, the Beck team took the project from a scorched site to grand opening.
