DeTour at the Colorado Health Foundation
Where: Colorado Health Foundation, 1780 Pennsylvania Aveneue, Denver, CO
When: Thursday, August 24, 3-5pm
Another surface parking lot in Denver’s Uptown district has been eradicated!
The Colorado Health Foundation, a nonprofit public health policy and advocacy organization, moved their headquarters from their current leased location in Glendale to a new facility of their own in Uptown at the southeast corner of East 18th Avenue and Pennsylvania Street.
The new headquarters is a three-story building of approximately 32,500 square feet, with direct access to outdoor areas via rooftop decks and/or gardens. In addition, the design has 17,500 square feet of below-grade parking, visually appealing construction materials and an inviting experience for pedestrians and local residents in its efforts to conform to the neighborhood surrounding the site. The design was crafted with specific project guiding principles and “health-positive” building metrics in mind, including natural ventilation and daylight.
In alignment with the Foundation’s mission, Davis Partnership Architects designed the building with specific guiding principles that promote employee and visitor health, creating a healthy workplace that focuses on stewardship and sustainability. Additionally, Saunders Construction implemented a workplace wellness program in order to create a healthy work environment for all contractors throughout construction.
This tour is limited in size to 30 participants, and is a members only event. Attendees will be divided into two groups for tours. Everyone is invited to attend the monthly social following the DeTour, taking place from 5 pm – 7 pm at Ace Eat Serve. The monthly social draws between 40-60 members and non-members for informal networking and happy hour.
