Reams Construction Co. has more than three decades of experience in offering the best in professional services, which include conceptual estimating, value engineering, and critical path scheduling. The challenges of the extreme geological contrasts of Southwestern Colorado provide a unique opportunity to address a variety of unusual situations that require innovative solutions. Here are a few examples of creatively-addressed projects that we are proud of:
- The City of Aspen needed a new administration facility for their waterworks but no space to build one. Our solution was to construct the building over an existing, working sedimentation basin (clarifier).
- Old Elam Ranch, a residential development in the San Juan Mountains near Telluride, wanted us to construct environmentally friendly waterworks and infrastructure. We buried the water tanks and set up a solar collection system that generates the electricity required for their waterworks.
- Rocky Mountain Natural Gas Co. had 30 days to connect six natural gas wells to a high-pressure main line to fulfill a contract with the well owners. Reams Construction Co. was able to complete the gathering system that consisted of more than 68,000 linear feet of 6”, 4” and 2” high-density polyethylene pipeline in order for the project to be completed on time.
- The Eagle Mine Site in Minturn, Colorado is an abandoned mine that was a unique site due to the extreme toxicity of the entire site. The groundwater was so saturated with heavy minerals from the abandoned mine works that the Eagle River literally ran orange and was virtually sterile. We designed a water treatment facility that mixes soda ash and lime to treat the heavy metals before the water re-enters the Eagle River. As part of the project, Reams Construction Co. successfully participated in the remediation of a contaminated wetland near an adjoining school. We also capped a consolidated tailings pile using a Bentonite liner and covering that with 2 feet of erosion control material and topsoil. Because of our work at this site, we were recognized locally and later nationally by being awarded ABC’s “Merit Award for National Excellence in Construction” in the environmental category.
