STRIDE Community Health Offices
STRIDE Community Health Centers Corporate Office Consolidation
This 21,767-foot design-build project with MOA Architecture featured complete interior demolition (including demo of all existing interior MEP) to allow for complete office build-out including all new mechanical throughout the building – new ductwork, VAVs, fan-powered boxes, new hydronic system, routine testing and programming of RTU’s, new plumbing, electrical and light fixtures; break and conference rooms. Lots of open office areas with fan-coil units.
Interior glass demising walls; barnwood beams above the main staircase and first floor breakroom. Porcelain tile in wet areas, ACT ceiling clouds throughout open office areas.
This project centralized 125 STRIDE employees from 11 administrative teams into a centralized administrative building housing Human Resources, Patient Accounts, Call Center, Information Systems, Development, Operations administration, Finance, Strategy and Growth, Community Health, Compliance and Training and Development.
The permitting process was (uncharacteristically) four-to-five months long. To work around this delay and keep the work moving, we were able to pull a demo and rough-in permit that allowed us to start work; to put-up walls and get MEP rough-ins, plus some drywall installation.
Fire alarm systems and Denver Fire Department: There were two separate addresses at this one location, and both shared the alarm and sprinkler system with only one fire alarm panel. Final inspections required Pinkard and the design team to separate the fire alarm system, which would cause a significant delay. As a work-around, we met with fire marshal and got final sign-off without the mandated separation. The fire marshal required the other tenant to ultimately fund and implement the fire alarm system separation from STRIDE.
Project finished on time with a minimal, owner-approved schedule extension.
CSU Warner College of Natural Resources
Located on CSU's main campus, the Michael Smith Warner College of Natural Resources (MSWCNR) addition and renovation will add four stories and approximately 42,800 gsf of new space to the south of the existing building.
The project will house flipped classrooms, instructional laboratories, a Student Success Center, an outdoor terrace, offices, and meeting/collaboration spaces.
The MSWCNR addition is centered around the needs of the students, from the large auditorium to the flexible teaching labs to the "treehouse," a collaboration studio convertible to an outdoor terrace.
The facility has been designed to tell the story of natural resources, create a teaching tool for students and faculty, and root the project to the place. Natural materials (stone and wood) and natural elements (sun and wind) are incorporated throughout the student experience with an emphasis on building collaboration, curiosity and community.
The addition will serve as the focus of community outreach and student engagement, and it will allow the college to grow its reach, enrich education, propel discovery, and increase its impact on the world.
Pinkard and 4240 Architecture were awarded the lump sum design-build contract following a lengthy design-build competition that included numerous collaborative design-build workshops with CSU, the College, and its many user groups. The award was based upon the best value proposition that included design aesthetics, add alternates, and final price.
North Aurora Family Health Services Building
Pinkard Construction, in a design-build relationship with MOA Architecture and Metro Community Provider Network (MCPN), completed the North Aurora Family Health Services renovation 45 days ahead of schedule and $80,000 under budget. Scope of work on the two-phased, 10,000 sf project included renovation and reconfiguration of a fully operational pharmacy, and transformation of existing offices into exam and procedure rooms.
The design-build team structure contributed greatly to the project’s success, allowing MCPN, MOA, and Pinkard time to reevaluate MCPN’s needs and program. Design and programming charrettes produced more efficient layouts resulting in expanded pharmacy space, two additional procedure rooms, a shorter schedule, and budget savings during buyout.
Pinkard’s management of the occupied pharmacy renovation was another key to the project’s success. With Pinkard’s implementation of a rolling shelving system, pharmacy staff was able to quickly transport and securely store pharmaceuticals during the long weekend of pharmacy renovation.
CSU South College Avenue Parking Garage
CSU's South College Avenue Parking Garage is a 222,000 square foot, 662-car, four-story precast structure on the southeast corner of the CSU campus.
The garage boasts a solar-panel-ready roof, and the latest parking technology, including color-coded lights that indicate open parking spaces. Digital entrance signs alert parkers to the number of spaces open on each level, thus reducing vehicle emissions associated with circling the garage looking for open spaces. The garage also sports six charging stations for electric vehicles.
Pay-per-hour spaces are linked to WayToPark, an app that provides users with a quick, online payment option that accepts credit cards.
The new parking structure is serviced by two elevators and features a sandstone veneer exterior with curtainwall systems at each of the three structural steel stair cores. Foundations are cast-in-place with drilled piers.
The new structure repurposes a surface lot located between College Avenue and Mason Street, and Lake and Pitkin streets, adjacent to the Alumni Center and University Square. It provides access to the MAX, the Oval, and the future medical center.
This design-build project with H+L Architecture featured a guaranteed maximum price at the RFP stage and required the Pinkard/H+L design-build team to develop DD-level bridging documents to the fixed GMP.
The project was completed on time and under budget.
Construction was conducted on a tight site amid considerable pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
Coors Dist. Co Warehouse Exp.
The 61,000 square foot, tilt-up concrete and structural steel expansion project houses a state-of-the-art Vertique semi-automated palletizing system featuring four cascading beer case distribution towers. Robotic palletizers, shrink wrappers, and a conveyor system sort and repack pallets to fill individual orders, which are then distributed to the 14 new truck docks.
The entire warehouse addition design was completed using 3D software to allow for BIM coordination between the building's structure/systems infrastructure and the Vertique packaging system.
Other spaces and features of the new warehouse include an operations office, truck receiving and repackaging, a 16,000 sf snow-melt system, fresh-air ventilation and extensive daylighting.
Denver Central Platte Campus
Pinkard Construction and RNL worked with the City and County of Denver in a design-build relationship to design and construct the Central Platte Campus maintenance facility and office complex at 1271 West Bayaud Avenue. The Central Platte Campus replaces and consolidates several other Public Works administrative and operations functions from other city and county yard locations. The 22-acre, multi-building campus includes:
Fleet maintenance building (structural steel and site-cast concrete wall panels)
Office/warehouse/shops space (structural steel and site-cast concrete wall panels)
Fueling station/large truck wash facility (pre-engineered metal buildings)
Salt dome and magnesium chloride storage area (pre-engineered wood-panels);
Heated and covered parking (pre-engineered metal buildings).
The shops area provides space for numerous Public Works departments including:
Meters and Denver Boot
Traffic Signage and Signals
The Central Platte Campus project is Leed Gold certified.
