New Walls at Kent Place

A new development is underway in Englewood on the northwest corner of University Blvd and Hampden Ave., on the former campus of Denver Theological Seminary. This mixed-use site, dubbed Kent Place, will feature commercial and residential properties, including an upscale King Soopers market.

Hayward Baker, on behalf of developers Regency Centers and Continuum, contacted Colorado Hardscapes to design a colored and stamped vertical application over the already installed soil nail and caisson walls.  The budget did not allow for use of form liners or a typical formed wall installation.

Colorado Hardscapes’ experience with horizontal applications allowed them to design a shotcrete method to achieve the same vertical look as the more expensive alternative formed walls.  Hayward Baker, Mark Young Construction, and Regency Centers approved the shotcrete application that is currently being installed along the south and east perimeters of the site by Colorado Hardscapes’ concrete artisans. A basic shotcrete method covers the existing walls. The shotcrete is then hand-carved and integrally colored, displaying a stamped slate texture and a hand carved pattern that complements other site walls.
