Weifield is excited to be a third of the way complete on our Colorado Convention Center Expansion project in downtown Denver!
This design-build project with valued GC partner, HENSEL PHELPS, includes the design and construction of 250,000 sq. ft. of vertical expansion to the Convention Center, renovation of 120,000 sq. ft. of lobby space, new vertical conveyances, and required code and life safety upgrades. The expansion areas include rooftop expansion, a new 80,000 sq. ft. ballroom, a 50,000 sq. ft. outdoor terrace, and a new smoke control head end system for the entire facility. The facility will have a new state-of-the-art lighting control system and a color-changing light scheme within the ballroom space.
Weifield’s crew just tackled a major conduit run that went from one side of the building to the other – and worked on changes that have come up with re-routing of existing bus duct that was in the way of new construction. Recent work has involved crews working on a 85’ high scaffolding for a difficult area we are having to work on – our team implemented the necessary protocols to ensure the complete safety of our crew.
We look forward to sharing more as we go – kudos to our amazing team for your progress!
