The Edge Ph I is a 82,000 sf ground-up facility with 70-units of affordable housing for working families and survivors of the 2012 High Park Fire and September 2013 floods, plus permanent supportive housing for homeless veterans. The facility consists of six three-story wood-framed buildings and a single-story clubhouse. 60 of the units are set aside for income-qualified individuals; the remaining ten units are reserved for homeless veterans. The campus also contains a clubhouse, urban gardens, tot lot, walking trails, and open space, with immediate access to the neighboring business park, retail, and professional services.
The Edge Ph II is a 80,000 sf ground-up facility with 69-units of affordable housing for working families. Both Phases are designed and constructed to meet Enterprise Green Communities Criteria. Financing includes Low Income Housing Tax Credits, municipal and private funding, and the federally funded Community Development Block Grant Disaster Relief program (CDBG-DR) administered by the Colorado Department of Local Affairs.
Pinkard worked closely with Loveland Housing Authority to help the authority pull together funding from a variety of sources. We also held numerous meetings with OZ Architecture to provide in-depth drawing review, constructability comments and other input. This collaboration resulted in well-detailed drawings and a solid Green Design and sustainability approach.
"I don't expect perfection, I just expect a near-perfect response; and that's what we got from Pinkard."
Near perfect response
"It really was a team. It felt like Pinkard was just an extension of us."
Pinkard was an extension of us
"Pinkard was good with the constructability review. Preconstruction. When given the opportunity, Pinkard did a great job with VE-type stuff, constructability, and asking some hard questions. I can remember the mechanical engineer getting grilled pretty well; somebody at Pinkard picked up that there were some issues with the ductwork."
