The Horticulture Administration and Maintenance Building (HORT) is a two-story, 15,500 s.f. structure to provide office, maintenance, service, storage and program needs for Red Butte Garden’s Horticulture and Conservation Departments. Located near the Garden’s production greenhouses, HORT is the second in a complex of buildings that will provide Red Butte’s horticulture infrastructure at full Garden buildout. Construction of the Building and site work immediately adjacent to the building will be Phase II of this project, scheduled to be bid in September.
Phase I of the Red Butte Garden Horticulture Compound project includes, but is not limited to the following: Site Demolition; including removal of existing buildings, trees, and paving on the historic Bathhouse site; removal of the existing entry drive, creation of a new entry drive into the project site, site grade modifications, stone retaining walls, installation of new utilities and modification of existing utilities, and installation of a new storm water system including a detention system. Phasing of utilities connections will be required to keep occupied areas operational until temporary trailers are installed and connected. Schedule on Phase I is of the upmost importance, with site work starting the first week of August, and substantial completion of Phase I by the 14th of October. Only bids for Phase I are being accepted at this time. A site walk through of the site is strongly encouraged and can be coordinated with Gramoll Construction.
Site Access Conditions: The main service entrance provides the only access to the lower Garden. The entry drive serves as access for all horticulture activities as well as for the RBG Summer Concert Series which takes place in the Amphitheatre east of the Greenhouse. Red Butte Garden’s horticulture and greenhouse operations are active all year and, combined with the concert season, are exceedingly busy from dawn to dusk during May-September. As the single access route for both, the existing entry drive must remain open for large busses and trucks at all times during construction until construction of the new entry drive is complete.
Both concerts and rental events in the Amphitheatre and lower Garden may require the Contractor to modify or occasionally cease operations to restrict noise that carries beyond the work site during critical periods.
Archeological Monitoring: The construction area for HORT lies within historic Fort Douglas, maps of which indicate possible subsurface archeological features, and preliminary site investigation confirmed cultural materials may be present in soils of the project area. An archaeological monitor must be on-site to observe most construction excavation and related ground disturbance. Equipment operators will take direction from the monitor with regards to pace or method of excavation to avoid unnecessarily damaging buried archaeological resources. Discovery of buried resources may necessitate a temporary stoppage of work in the discovery area. Costs for the archeological monitoring will be paid by the University.
