Multi-award winning project fuses functionality and aesthetics

The Denver Central Platte Campus was designed and constructed for the City and County of Denver’s Public Works Department. Sitting on 18-acres, this 105,000-square-foot space provides a one-stop-shop for fleet maintenance and storage, solid waste management, street maintenance services, traffic engineering, and more. The six-building campus is highly visible along the I-25 corridor, making the overall design aesthetic and the project’s integration into the surrounding urban area a key consideration.

We used an integrated design approach to develop systems to attain LEED-NC Gold without exceeding the fixed budget. All aspects of the mechanical and electrical systems are focused on reducing energy consumption resulting in overall reduction in operating cost for the owner. The use of durable, sustainable, and low VOC interior finishes in combination with daylight and views create an appealing work environment. The building aesthetics make this highly functional building integrate seamlessly into the community.
