The Denver Crime Lab is a $27.9 million, CM/GC project that is part of the Denver Bond Program. This downtown facility consists of a 73,650 SF, three-story lab/office space with a mechanical penthouse on the roof and a partial basement containing locker rooms, firing range, and mechanical and electrical rooms.
In addition, JE Dunn connected the lab to the existing police building garage at the basement level. There is a section of the existing underground parking area that was remodeled for the forensic garage area.
The building is broken down into three main areas; lab space, office space and atrium space. The site work consisted of new sidewalk and a detention area with underground detention vault and total size of 1.0 acres. The structure is structural steel above grade and cast-in-place concrete with a structural slab for the basement. The skin is composed of ground face masonry at the first floor and ACM metal panels and curtain wall for the 2nd and 3rd floors.
