Building Public Spaces
From A to (almost) Z, Pinkard’s experience with public/municipal clients covers nearly the entire alphabet, starting with the City of Aspen and ending with the Town of Windsor. In total, we have completed more than 90 projects for 37 public/municipal clients across the Colorado Front Range. And these projects run the gamut in scopes of work and challenges, including high-rise and historical renovations, ground-up medical office buildings and coroners’ facilities, recreation, fleet maintenance facilities, administration/ office buildings, and more. This experience has taught us about our public/municipal clients' unique needs and the accountability and fiscal responsibility that municipalities have to their citizens.

Margaret Carpenter Recreation Center
The completed facility includes a new six-lane lap pool with an adjacent aqua-exercise pool, a wave pool with a lazy river and bubble pit, an activity pool with zero-depth entry, play structure, geysers, and sprays, a water slide, and a 20-person therapeutic hydro-jet spa. The universal locker room expansion better serves families and individuals with special needs, increasing accessibility for all.
The recreation center will remained open to the public throughout construction. To ensure guest and staff safety, and minimize impacts to daily operation, Pinkard implemented special safety and operational protocols learned from their 42 recreation centers and 60 pools constructed along the Colorado Front Range.
Highlands Ranch Metro Dist. Service Center
The project scope includes an interior renovation of the existing service center building to allow for added office spaces, conference, break and lunchroom areas, locker rooms (with added fixtures) and overall interior finish upgrades. New construction will consist of a 6,000 square foot fleet services building and shops and storage buildings totaling 7,400 square feet located in the center of the existing yard area. The cost of construction is currently estimated at $5 million.
The existing 12,000 square foot service center was constructed in 1999 for the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Department and provides workspaces for administration, recreation, planning, facilities, parks, parkways, park services, open space, forestry, and fleet sections. Construction on the renovation began in September 2020 and is expected to conclude in August of 2021.
Three metal building structures:
Fleet Building: 6,500 sf ground up. Included office space, restrooms, mezzanine, lift and vehicle service equipment
East Storage: 3,500 sf ground up
West Storage: 2,500 sf ground up
Bison Ridge Recreation Center
Pinkard provided complete CM/GC services for the City of Commerce City's Bison Ridge Recreation Center and related infrastructure/roadway improvements.
The recreation center is approximately 108,000 square feet with an indoor leisure pool and support spaces, aerobics, catering kitchen, gymnastics, weight and fitness, gymnasium, community room/meeting space, required building support spaces and administrative spaces.
Roadway and infrastructure scope includes:
Improvements to E. 112th Avenue intersections at Highway 2 and Potomac Avenue;
Widening of the Highway 2 bridge over the O'Brian Canal, Highway 2 lane widening; and new roadway to connect E. 112th Avenue and Potomac Street;
Extensive improvements to Potomac Street, including new water and irrigation main lines, gas main lines, converting overhead power lines to underground, adding underground 100-pair CenturyLink pair-bonded copper Internet cable, Comcast conduit, storm drainage, a multi-use path and landscaping.
Pinkard is also providing complete infrastructure for the new recreation center, which sits on 25.5 acres of farm land at E. 112th Avenue and Potomac Street. Leveling the site required approximately 30,000 yards of imported fill.
Pinkard is constructing a multi-modal roadway to provide primary access to the recreation center.
Fellsberg-Holt-Ullevig is providing road and infrastructure design, and Sink Combs Dethlefs is the recreation center architect. Flatiron Constructors is constructing the roadwork; CH2M is the city's representative.
The project area is in the northern portion of Commerce City, generally bounded by Highway 2 on the north, E. 112th Avenue on the south, Potomac Street on the west, and private property on the east.
Moorhead Recreation Center
Pinkard completed phase I and phase II improvements to the City of Aurora's Moorhead Recreation Center, including: Phase I demolition of the existing 4,500 square foot drop-in center; renovating the existing pool, and Phase II: addition of a new 26,000 sf recreation center and a 12,000 sf natatorium.
The recreation center is load bearing masonry and structural steel with a lap pool and leisure pool, full-sized gymnasium with three cross courts and running track, new fitness and cardio space, community teaching kitchen, multi-purpose rooms, public computer space, additional parking and landscape upgrades.
The pool renovation includes pool-shape reconfiguration, addition of a 55-foot water slide, and deck replacement.
The finished center is approximately 38,000 sf.
Demolition of the old space, which has been at capacity for decades, followed owner-contracted abatement.
Pinkard was selected to construct this project following a competitive bid. Pinkard's bid came in more than $1 million under the owner's budget.
Windsor Community Recreation Center
The project is a renovation and multiple additions to the Town of Windsor's Community Recreation Center.
Additions include a second gymnasium immediately adjacent to the existing gymnasium; a aerobics/cardio area; and a large aquatics addition with lap pool and family pool. A 180-foot long, fully enclosed flume slide starts inside the pool area, loops outside and returns inside. The new gymnasium will also include an elevated running track.
Second-floor additions include a weight room and office/support space.
Renovation scope includes locker room space for ADA compliance, and 3,400 sf of second-floor build-outs to create office and support areas.
An elevated running track will be constructed inside the existing gymnasium, connecting with the new running track inside the new gymnasium addition.
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.
