Denver Housing Authority Thomas Bean Tower Renovation
This project includes the total renovation of two 1976 high-rise towers. The last renovation occurred in 2005. The objective of the current renovation is to refresh all public areas and apartments for more durable, more pleasing finishes, and also upgrade building systems and energy systems for efficiencies needed to immediately reduce energy and provide the infrastructure to meet the City of Denver’s 2030 Green Code requirements which includes Net-Zero energy use and later Carbon Neutral status. Common Client Support Areas in the building were completely re-imagined with functionality and security emphasized. The 2.2 Acre site was also completely renovated with an emphasis on security, low water consumption, durability and sustainability through a newly designed solar array which not only helps power the building but acts as a canopy for the stage of an exterior amphitheater.
