Congratulations and thank you to everyone at CVL for participating in the food drive and donations to help St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance. There are 2 million Arizonans living at or below the Federal poverty line and a majority of them are recipients of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance emergency food box program. Your contributions have helped to feed an incredible amount of hungry people in our communities.
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:
ENR Southwest has awarded the Arizona Firefighter Memorial project as best in Landscape & Urban Development. McCarthy Building Companies, submitted the project to the ENR Regional Best Projects competition, which consists of an eight-judge panel that represents various aspects of the industry. Submissions included engineering projects in Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico that span a variety of sectors.
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.
Project design and construction team included McCarthy Building Companies (general contractor), SmithGroup JJR (architect), PK Associates (structural engineer) and Coe & Van Loo Consultants (civil engineer).
This past weekend a few members from CVL participated in an event called Canstruction. They partnered with Affiliated Engineers (MEP), Skanska USA Building, and SPS+ Architects to design and build a structure entirely out of cans. The structure is currently on display in the West Building of the Phoenix Convention Center.
Preparations for this build began in May, with the design process taking place all summer long. See the attached photos of the structure.
You can help us win an award for our structure! Votes are being tallied through Facebook and in person at the Convention Center. To vote on Facebook search “Phoenix Canstruction”. They have an album that contains all the structures for the “People’s Choice”. Simply “Like” the photos of our structure and that counts as a vote! To vote in person, visit the structure any time before 8/16 to cast a paper ballot.
If you have any questions about the structure, or how to vote, you can ask Matt, Veanette, Miranda, or Cassandra who all helped at build day.
The CVL Service Committee would like to invite all of you to participate in events such as this. We will be holding a quick meeting in the coming weeks to discuss possible events for the holiday season as well as future events you think would be good opportunities for CVL to participate in. If you would like to be a part of the CVL Service Committee please email Matt or Cassandra so they can add you to the list!
