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.
Eagle Pointe CLC Corporate Office
The Eagle Pointe project is the two-story tenant improvement of a three-story class A office building built in 2002. Work on the second and third floors includes buildout to create athletic/workout area with two ADA bath/shower combinations; reconfiguration of walls; complete gut and rebuild of third floor; open office areas, conference rooms, executive offices, break room kitchen, and new roof-top unit with associated screen wall.
Pinkard provided owner Christian Living Communities close collaboration during construction to accommodate the owner’s changing design needs. In-construction changes included additional millwork, carpet revisions, additional lighting/reconfigured lighting; revised cabinetry. These changes totaled more than $150,000 and included a one week schedule extension to accommodate the work.
Arista Place 8181
The Arista Place 8181 project is a ground-up five-story office building adjacent to its sister property 8001 Arista Place office building (another Pinkard project) near the Broomfield Event Center.
When Pinkard’s on-site quality control personnel identified issues with steel fabrication that could significantly delay the job, our project team convened the steel erector and fabrication team to analyze possible fixes. According to the client, “Pinkard and the team came up with what was actually a pretty simple plan – they did a really good job digging in and finding the easiest and best solution – it was executed flawlessly.”
Because this project was constructed during a particularly difficult time in the Colorado labor market, Arista Place LLC had serious concerns that the project would suffer delays due to subcontractor failures and no-shows. “Pinkard’s subcontractor relationships have had a lot to do with this not happening. they are loyal to Pinkard because Pinkard treats them well; along with Pinkard’s subcontractor vetting process, which I think is pretty strict. Another reason why it was a good choice to go with Pinkard. We could easily have gone with somebody cheaper, then have some labor issues, drag out the time frame and cost us more money in the end. It’s hard to quantify the value in that.”*
Pinkard’s waterproofing and quality assurance approach ensured watertight seals on Arista’s many windows and storefront framing. Multiple individuals signed-off on every single window opening, which included photographs of every window, its framing, and the waterproofing process.
While this was technically a ground-up project, Pinkard was obligated to accommodate the needs of some existing tenants who were concerned that construction activities would hamper walk-in business. Pinkard met regularly with these tenants to listen to and respond to their concerns, which included erecting “open for business” pedestrian routing signs. Arista Place LLC commented that Pinkard treated existing tenants as if they were Pinkard clients.
Colorado Adventure Pointe
The Urban Scouting Adventure Center project is the complete gut and renovation of 20,000 sf of existing office space in the west wing of the Hamilton Scouting Headquarters at West 6th Avenue and Kipling in Lakewood.
The project converts the unoccupied west wing into an indoor climbing facility; air rifle and archery ranges; educational kitchen space; multipurpose/performance areas; classrooms and office spaces. Enhanced outdoor facilities include an urban camping environment and campfire meeting areas.
Although the project is not pursuing a specific LEED rating, it incorporates LEED elements that are advantageous to the function, durability or success of the project.
Mechanical/electrical retrofits include the removal and replacement of electrical equipment and distribution system; and a revised mechanical distribution system to accommodate the new space.
Scope of work also includes owner-contracted asbestos abatement.
Action Center Program Services Building
Located at 8755 West 14th Avenue, in Lakewood, Colorado, the Jeffco Action Center (JAC) currently operates as a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing an immediate response to basic human needs and promoting self-sufficiency to Jefferson County's people in dire situations. With community involvement, Jeffco Action Center has served over 30,000 people a year through a food bank, clothing bank, medical/utility/rent assistance, tenant/landlord counseling, and household items to stabilize the family or individual with the continuum of emergency services to achieve self-sufficiency.
The construction was phased into two separate stages. Phase one was the parking lot demolition and repaving. The second phase was a complete interior remodel of a former post office building, supplemented by two ground-up additions.
The building contained a great deal of asbestos that required removal. A reframe of the roof was cost prohibitive, which required us to shore up the existing structure. We were able to arrive at a design that would enable us to maintain the existing roof structure without much effect on the interior layout.
Pinkard spearheaded the drive for donations for the project, eventually gathering over $1 million in "in-kind" donations from design professionals and subcontractors sympathetic to JAC's cause. Pinkard's role as CM/GC was donated.
The new facility houses a medical and dental clinic, a food, and clothing bank, and features a case management service, Santa Shop, Meals on Wheels, and tenant/landlord counseling.
El Paso County Coroner's Office
This renovation/addition includes a complete interior demolition of the existing 12,200 sf sheriff's training building, and a 10,200 sf addition on the north end of the existing building. Work includes reception, admin areas, conference rooms, lab/autopsy space, restrooms, locker rooms, storage, large freezer/refrigeration units, and support spaces for various building systems.
Sophisticated, building-wide mechanical and plumbing systems specific to coroners' work are included in the addition, including a state-of-the-art Lodox Statscan full-body imaging scanner.
Separate decomp/autopsy and autopsy space has its own isolated mechanical systems to compartmentalize odors and the potential for contamination. Portions of the MEP equipment from the existing facility were reused.
Site work includes a new drive at the north end of building with a split face CMU screen wall and security gate to obscure the loading area. New utilities were tied into existing service mains; an existing back-up generator was relocated to the new facility.
Construction materials from the area were duplicated in the new facility, and compliment them for aesthetic compatibility with the surrounding area.
