Leading a sustainably designed, multiphase complex modernization project
Denver Water is Colorado’s oldest and largest water utility. The public agency is a champion for sustainability and water conservation efforts. The utility also takes great pride in offering its employees a superior, happy, and healthy work environment.
When it came time to modernize their 36-acre operations complex, Denver Water hired our team as the master campus architect to help them push the boundaries of what is possible on a contemporary campus. The administration building is LEED-NC Platinum certified and Net Zero Energy. Its sustainable features include onsite solar, a radiant slab powered by the complex’s central utility plant, a high-efficiency triple pane-glazed window system, and biophilic design.
Perhaps the most pioneering aspect of the campus is how it addresses water sustainability. Denver Water has developed a holistic plan, titled One Water, for water efficiency and reuse that promotes the correct water source for the correct use. The administration facility’s two most innovative One Water strategies are the high-volume rainwater capture for irrigation, and onsite wastewater treatment and recycling for restroom and irrigation purposes. The implementation of these systems is a first in Colorado, clearing the way for other new developments to work on their own One Water solutions.
