Signature Centre at Denver West, LLC
Commercial Office Building
Golden, CO

Sited on 7.16 acres, this 185,920 rsf Class A office building was completed in 2007 in unincorporated Jefferson County. This is a multi-tenant commercial office building, certified LEED-CS Platinum. The building features an under-floor air delivery system, a chill beam passive perimeter cooling system, evaporative cooled condensing units, daylight harvesting, waterless urinals and other multiple sustainable features. We evaluated all possible building systems and construction methods that met the Developer's criteria - Provide Space Flexibility, Increase Rental Rates & Reduce Vacancy, Provide High Performance & Efficiency in Operations, and Meet a Minimum 3 year ROI. Renewable energies were researched for viability, though solar photovoltaic made the most sense, given the large flat roof source and economic investment, the pay back of 11.5 years was too long for the developer.

Acting as Development Manager, Matthew Beecher lead a project team that focused on occupant productivity, design and construction integration and operation excellence during development. The project was designed in seven months and construction was complete in 13 months. The building achieved a LEED-CS Platinum certification rating without designing to the LEED scorecard and with no additional hard costs. Total Development Cost: $41,900,000.
