Naranjo Civil Constructors has decades of experience working in Colorado waterways and understands how to navigate sensitive environments minimizing damage to in-situ ecosystems. Constructing man-made improvements and retaining their “organic” appearance requires specialized teams. Naranjo Civil is an industry leader in combining natural resource management and river restoration. A recent project took the expanse of the South Platte River and channelized it to a more environmentally sound waterway, adding vegetated banks and secondary overflow channels to dynamically accommodate fish and fowl. Naranjo has built a number of natural features into riverine environments across Colorado while preserving existing habitats including fish ladders, glides, pools, lunker boxes, and constructed stream bank features.
