It is a pleasure for CVL to work with Shea Homes, America’s largest privately owned new home builder, primarily building mid-priced to high-end homes.  We designed a Master Planned Community, Golf Course, and Infrastructure Development project called Trilogy at Verde River.  The final stages of development are underway in this adult golf-oriented community.  We are honored to receive compliments for our work on the gold course core area channel design for Shea and look forward to continued partnership.  Take a look at the beautiful views of Shea Trilogy Golf Course:

The memorial is landscaped with grass, decorative slate rock, and trees surrounding a black granite courtyard containing engraved names of fallen personnel. A 30ft tall bell tower stands as the focal point between bronze statues representing different branches of firefighters and medical personnel. When the trees reach maturity, a quaint sanctuary will be created for the families and friends to mourn the fallen.

Coe & Van Loo prepared preliminary and final design documents for the memorial. This included storm water retention, site grading, drainage design, utility locating, and topographical elevations. Construction documents were prepared to support the architectural plans for the project.
