University of Colorado Boulder JILA Addition

The 50,800-square-foot addition to the JILA complex (a joint institute of the University of Colorado Boulder and the National Institute of Science and Technology) is intended to further the capability and capacity of scientific research from Astrophysics to Biophysics to Nanoscience. The facility houses some of the world’s leading scientists including Nobel Prize Laureates. The project is a response to the present and future growth of JILA, and provides cutting-edge laboratory, technical, office and collaborative spaces.

Saunders worked hand-in-hand with the University’s facilities department and JILA scientists/researchers, located in the existing facility, to provide constant communication on noise and vibration levels of construction operations in order to limit construction influence on the highly sensitive research.

Shoreline Clinic

This new 45,000 square foot, three-story clinic was built for LEED Gold certification and includes 20 exam rooms, 10 dental chairs, three community meeting rooms, a laboratory, two exhibit galleries, and an outdoor reflection garden. Parking is located below-grade and on surface lots. Lewis also renovated and expanded ICHS’ existing clinic in Bellevue.

Sea Pines Harbour Town Clubhouse

The Sea Pines Resort Harbour Town Clubhouse is home to the annual RBC Heritage PGA Tournament. With the dire need to expand and improve upon its existing facilities, Sea Pines selects Choate for the construction of this multi-phase project.

Phase one consists of the expansion and renovation to the existing Halfway House. Provisions are made allowing golf course operations to continue, uninterrupted, during the demolition and construction period. The parking area beneath the Conference Center is converted to transitional golf cart storage and a temporary Pro Shop, Caddy Shack and cart staging area remain in operation as the 2014 RBC PGA Heritage takes place between phase one and phase two of construction.

Phase two includes complete demolition to the existing structure and construction of the larger more luxurious Clubhouse, which is located within the same footprint. The stunning three-story structure houses a golf cart garage and storage, Pro Shop, men’s and women’s locker rooms, restaurant, private dining, toilet rooms, kitchen, back of house operations, and multi-function rooms. The Clubhouse is built within two inches of the existing Conference Center, allowing the Clubhouse kitchen to poke-through to the Conference Center corridors and kitchen, which creates convenient and operational efficiency. The adjacent Conference Center receives an exterior facade renovation to match the Clubhouse.

This project is completed in less than 10 months and prior to the 2015 RBC Heritage PGA Tournament, breaking the PGA’s previous record for the demolition and construction of a clubhouse between tournament dates.

Denver Health and Hospitality Authority Peri-Operative Remodel

With 25 percent of all Denver residents receiving their care at this facility, completing this complex, phased renovation was no easy task. This project required a CM/GC with industry-best methods for infection control to ensure the work was completed with patient safety as the number one priority.

The original facility was built in 1975 and no longer met the growing demands and needs of Denver Health. All of the construction work was completed while the Hospital remained operational.

Phase 1: New Surgery Staff Support

This phase encompasses approximately 3,379 square feet of remodeled space to support the surgery staff and includes locker rooms, lounges, office and conference room.

Phase 2: New 17 Station Post-anesthesia Care Unit & Surgery Support

This phase encompasses approximately 5,500 square feet of remodeled space including support rooms that allow observation of multiple patients at one time.

Phase 3: New Outpatient Gastrointestinal & 20 Pre-operative Stations

This phase encompasses approximately 8,285 square feet of remodeled space to a new Outpatient Gas-trointestinal Suite and Pre-operative area. Additionally, the phase included support rooms and two new inpatient rooms.

Denver Art Museum Office Building

The Denver Art Museum Administration Building is a 52,000-square-foot, three-level office building housing 150 employees. The building was designed to meet LEED Gold and an exposed ceiling throughout. This distinct feature of open ceilings required numerous hours of 3D coordination and modeling. The time spent modeling the space ensured the exposed vents and piping, that would other wise be covered, were perfectly aligned.

The first two floors consist of open office areas, conference rooms and break rooms. Located in the center of each floor are the conference rooms and break room. This area is known as the “Heart Beat Zone.” It is divided into 4 separate areas symbolically representing the chambers of a human heart.

The secured basement consists of Art and High Density (library) Storage. The art storage area required a dedicated HVAC system to meet specific environmental and American Alliance of Museums (AAM) criteria. It is also a humidity controlled environment, to properly preserve all the art archives.

Colorado School of Mines – Ben H. Parker Student Center Renovation

Saunders Construction recently completed complex renovations to the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) Ben H. Parker Student Center. Renovations took place on 60-percent of the existing building and remained open to CSM students and faculty as construction took place.

The project was completed in two phases. The first phase, on the west wing of the building, was renovated to include a larger bookstore, a remodeled kitchen and food court. After Phase 1 was complete, the project team moved on to the east wing of the building to complete Phase 2 renovations of an Old Bookstore the Digger Den Cafeteria.
