Pinkard Frameworks, a division of Pinkard Construction, recently completed wood framing services for the Krisana Apartments affordable housing project at 4343 E. Arkansas Avenue in Denver. The project is being developed by Kentro Group, Lexton McDermott, Pinkard Construction, and architect Lewis Himes Associates

The Krisana Apartments project will feature 151 deed-restricted, affordable housing units located on the former Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) headquarters site. The complex will consist of 21 studio, 71 one-bedroom, and 59 two-bedroom apartments equipped with Energy Star-rated appliances, central air conditioning, laundry facilities, a fitness center, a courtyard, a social room, and a secured bike storage area, among other amenities.  

Pinkard recently launched Pinkard Frameworks, to serve as a trade partner to developers and general contractors along the Colorado front range in addition to self-performing wood framing for Pinkard projects. 

“The team’s efforts on Krisana Affordable Housing created a framing design that prevented conflicts and cascading issues that typically halt construction progress for redesigns,” said Dan Harris, Pinkard Frameworks manager. “Pinkard Frameworks is under contract to provide wood framing services for two other Pinkard projects, such as akin Tennyson in Denver and Willoughby Corner in Lafayette.”  

Harris takes a holistic approach, collaborating with truss fabricators in preconstruction to achieve framing designs that meet architectural and structural intent, ensuring constructability, seamless integration with other trades, and a budget-friendly, faster, and higher-quality project. 

The Krisana Apartments will be available for residents who earn up to 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI), with an upper limit of $49,260 in annual gross income for a single-person household or up to $70,320 for a four-person household, which are benchmarks established by the Colorado Housing Finance Authority (CHFA).

The Krisana Apartments are expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2024.
