Our project team discusses the aesthetic and sustainable benefits of the lighting system for Denver Water in Lighting Design + Application magazine

For Denver Water, it’s all about the flow. Just as water flows to the utility’s 1.5 million customers, lighting was designed to complement the flow of architectural elements within the company’s new 186,000-sq ft administration building, as well as among seven other renovated facilities on its historic 34-acre operations complex.

At the helm of the complex’s transformation was Stantec, which began working with Denver Water in 2013. “We conducted master planning [for Denver Water] to help them determine that staying on their current campus was indeed the best value and most impactful design approach,” says Tony Thornton, senior associate and architectural project manager for Stantec. “We also helped the client to strategize how their campus could be phased to remain operational while nearly every building was being replaced or renovated.”
