Byron G. Rogers Federal Office Building - March 28, 2013
Description: HOK is the design architect on the design-build team for the modernization of the 18-story Byron G. Rogers Federal Office Building in downtown Denver. The challenge is to design an affordable, highly energy-efficient retrofit of a large, historic existing building while creating a modern, flexible workplace for 11 federal agencies. The project includes complete design and construction for upgrades to the structural elements and all major building systems. The building upgrades should reduce annual energy costs by 55 percent to 65 percent. Building upgrades include the replacement of the mechanical, electrical, lighting, fire protection and plumbing systems, as well as replacement of all exterior windows, an increase to insulation in walls and a complete renovation of all tenant spaces and most public spaces. Highly efficient LED lighting, high-performance building/lighting controls and thermal storage tanks to preserve building energy also will be installed. Renovated in 2005, the adjacent federal courthouse will have its windows replaced with more energy-efficient products. This high-performance sustainable building project will continue GSA's legacy of outstanding public architecture. The team includes Mortenson Construction as design builder, Bennett Wagner & Grody Architects as architect of record, RMH Group for MEP engineering and Rocky Mountain Institute as high-performance building consultant.
