Bryan Construction, Inc. (BCI) recently completed construction of All Copy Products‘ new Denver headquarters. All Copy Products is a top office solutions provider that offers office technology services from copiers, document management & managed IT Services. Bryan Construction was contracted as the design-builder to construct the 136,877-square-foot, 5-story building at 1635 W. 13th Ave., in Denver’s Lincoln Park.
President and CEO Brad Knepper’s vision was to consolidate metro area offices into one, as well as prepare for future growth. The building was programmed and designed by MOA Architecture.
While designing and building the new office, the focus was to make the space throughout the building efficient, productive, relaxing, and enjoyable for employees. The construction includes three levels of parking with one partially underground, three levels of office space, a workout facility, and electrochromic glazing. The new office has a large open lobby with monument stairs that greet visitors and staff as they enter the building. The 5th floor boasts an entertaining kitchen, which overlooks Mile High Stadium, for daily use and special events.
The Bryan Construction team diligently worked to keep the project running smoothly. The owner, Bryan Construction, and MOA Architecture carefully examined and selected the best options for the client regarding the logistics of constructing such a large building on a tight, urban brownfield site. The team also successfully faced the challenge of construction in an active workplace. They carefully ensured the safety, comfort, and continued productivity of the All Copy employees. Denver Group Executive Scott Boal stated, “Bryan Construction is proud to partner with forward-thinking companies like All Copy Products. Brad Knepper values teamwork in all of his business units which made this a great fit for our BCI team-driven culture.”
The All Copy Products headquarters is one of the first buildings in Denver to use electrochromic glazing. Electrochromic glass removes the need for interior window coverings by tinting the window based on the time of day and sun exposure. To tie the “smart glass” system into the computer for accurate tint levels, Bryan Construction’s team performed the more challenging task of running cables through the wall, tracking proper placement of the cables, and ensuring precautions were made to maintain the highest quality of work.
The on-site Bryan Construction team at the project also enjoyed using the building as a learning opportunity for the Civil Engineering Technology students from Metro State University’s nearby Auraria Campus. The team toured with the students and taught them about the post-tension cabling being used in the parking structure and the importance of proper installation.
The newly constructed building accommodates the entire Denver All Copy team and equipment warehouse. “I am grateful for all of the hard work and effort that Bryan Construction put into our new ACP corporate headquarters. Thanks to their hard work and dedication, we now have a space that can accommodate our growth and enjoy for many years to come,” said Mr. Knepper.
Space within the building will also be leased to several tenants, including R&R Engineering. As a dedicated partner of All Copy, Bryan Construction helped secure the future tenant. As the All Copy headquarters project comes to completion, Bryan Construction looks forward to building more office and commercial buildings in the Denver area and along the Front Range.
