After several years of planning and design, the City of Fort Collins celebrates the opening of the Fossil Creek pedestrian tunnel that was constructed beneath active BNSF rail lines. The 70-foot long by 14-foot diameter tunnel allows for the Fossil Creek Trail to connect the west side of Fort Collins to College Avenue. Brierley Associates served as specialty geotechnical and geostructural design consultant to Stantec who led the tunnel design team. Congratulations to the City of Fort Collins, Stantec and tunnel constructor BT Construction.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. In Denver, Brierley's staff volunteered for the Habitat for Humanity Sheridan Square project. Once completed, this will be the largest development in Metro Denver's history for the nonprofit organization. It is located on a former elementary school site, which is 4.35-acres and will include the construction of 63 energy-efficient homes. Sheridan Square will create a permanent affordable housing solution for 355 people (130 adults and 225 children). Melody Clay, Derek Magnuson, Kyle Friedman, Kyle Hinds and their families helped with painting, caulking, and siding on several storage sheds for these homes.
