Catellus Development Corporation

Project Overview:  The Novus Innovation Corridor is a mixed-use development project that consists of approximately 8 million square feet of low to high rise office space, multi-family development, hotels, and retail space. This multi-phased project consists of 4 separate GMP’s that includes the infrastructure and reconstruction of mixed-use development located adjacent ASU Tempe Campus. Work consists of reconstructing the 6th Street and Packard Drive and segments of University Drive and Rural Road on the ASU Campus in Tempe. DCS cut into an existing waterline, including new fire hydrants and services, while keeping the existing waterline operational. The project is unique in that DCS encountered many unmarked, abandoned, and unknown utilities, which resulted in design collaborations with the engineer and City Inspectors. DCS installed new water, storm drain, reclaimed water, and fire line utilities. Our extensive pre-construction planning allowed for a streamlined construction phase with no delays due to utility conflicts while also providing minimal disruption to stakeholders while maintaining access to the ASU campus.
