One Steamboat Place
Steamboat Springs, Colorado

 

 

 

 

 

 

One Steamboat Place Condominium project is a 440,000 sq. ft. mixed use residential project at the base of Mt. Werner in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It includes a two-level parking garage under a public plaza, retail at the plaza level and 85 very high-end residential units. The project had an aggressive fast-track schedule with phased contract documents to accommodate the quick start of construction.

The project was complex with residential units spread across a wide area and a large number of different unit types that did not cleanly stack from level to level. Most of the units were large, many with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Ownership includes fractional owners, Vacation Club and full unit ownership. This project included amenities not seen in typical mountain condominium projects.

Technology Plus was tasked to provide technology design services for this 21st century high-end condominium development. The project scope encompassed:

  • Communications Infrastructure (included the structured cabling system for voice phone system and data)
  • Wireless Network for Internet Access
  • Security System
  • Cable (CATV) and Satellite (SMATV) Systems
  • Audiovisual (AV) Technology Solutions

 

 

One Ski Hill, Peak 8
Breckenridge, Colorado

Technology Plus provided design for the Breckenridge Ski Resort Peak 8 Development. This mixed use development consists of 260,000 square feet incorporating commercial, retail and residential space into one comprehensive facility. Technology Plus provided the design, the technology systems and communications infrastructure for the project.
 

Early involvement by Technology Plus allowed for specific requirements definitions, effective planning and ease of integration with the civil infrastructure, building design and electrical systems. Having designed building support systems with flexibility, reliability, and adaptability will allow the various tenants and owners to accommodate new systems and technologies as they emerge. The variety of building functions and requirements necessitated a coordinated approach to the technology systems and infrastructure. The systems used to manage these services are often characterized as low-voltage systems, which include voice, data, audiovisual, security, wireless and other IP-based solutions. The convergence of these systems under the IP protocol meant that a single infrastructure supported multiple systems and services, thereby saving installation dollars and long-term operational costs.

Technology Plus worked with MKK Consulting Engineers, O’Bryan Partnership Architects and Vail Associatesto select and integrate appropriate systems into the building design for the resort. Technology Plus addressed the following functional areas and systems:

  • Structured Cabling System
  • Voice/Data System Cabling
  • Telecommunication(s) Rooms
  • Server Room
  • CATV System Cabling
  • Security System Cabling
  • Technology Backbone/Riser System
  • Residential Cabling
  • Pathways and Flexible Access
  • Security Systems
  • Access Control
  • Parking, Residential Units, Common and Amenity Areas
  • CATV
  • Cable TV Access
  • Comcast Coordination
  • Cable and Equipment Distribution Design
  • Audiovisual Systems
  • Media Center, Business Center, Conference Rooms, Bars, and Fitness Center
  • Leaky Coax or In-Building Antenna System
  • Antenna System to Propagate RF signals
  • Life-Safety Radios
  • Wireless Services
  • Cellular Service
  • Wireless for Public Areas and Option for Wireless in the Units
