In October 2020, Halker Consulting and Cascade Environmental merged, further expanding upon multi-discipline engineering capabilities. Cascade is a leading full-service environmental assessment, remedial design and remedial construction management services company. For the past 25 years, Cascade Environmental has provided municipal, industrial, and commercial clients full-service environmental assessment, remedial design and remedial construction management services. Cascade’s goal has been to provide clients with personalized, value-added service which contributes to their success by ensuring compliance with all applicable State and Federal environmental regulations, minimizing their liability, and reducing their long-term operating costs.

This week, we are featuring a project spotlight on a large scale road widening and rehabilitation project in the heart of the Denver metro area that began in August of 2020. The scope of the project is to widen and rehabilitate Broadway from Exposition to the South towards Ohio St., reconstruct E. Exposition from Lincoln through Broadway and construct a block of W. Exposition in concrete pavement. In addition to the road work, upgrades include curb and gutter modifications, sidewalk improvements, new pedestrian ramps, storm sewer enhancements, the addition of a 16″ waterline, additional lighting, landscaping and irrigation as well as streetscape developments. Throughout all stages of work, Cascade has provided environmental support activities to identify and manage suspect contaminated materials such as soil, groundwater and historical urban fill. More specifically, Cascade provided a Certified Asbestos Inspector (CABI) and Health & Safety professionals to work on-site with the Contractor as excavation activities progressed to characterize suspect materials as they were encountered. 

Halker, along with Cascade, is excited to continue to grow our offerings so that we can continue providing specialized engineering, procurement, construction, and project management services to the world’s best companies in a way that continually increases customer value, agility and success, while supporting environmental, social and economic sustainability.
