Stanley Marketplace Wins USGBC’s Mountain West Leadership Award
CENTENNIAL, CO – Stanley Marketplace has been awarded the 2018 U.S. Green Building Council Mountain West Leadership Award for Outdoor Environments. The honor is awarded to a project that demonstrates innovative use of integrating landscape design into their space, and utilizes environmentally responsible landscaping techniques.
The Stanley team, led by Mark Shaker of Flightline Ventures, consisted of Workshop8 (architects), Ware Malcomb (civil engineers), Consilium Design (land planners/landscape architects), and White Construction, displayed unparalleled creativity, innovation and teamwork to create this incredible community marketplace.
“We are so proud to have worked on such an amazing project with this group of very talented professionals” said Craig Karn, principal at Consilium Design. “We wanted Stanley to set a standard for adaptive reuse, water quality strategies, urban heat island reduction and overall sustainable landscape design practices for the industry.”
According to Marcel van Garderen, vice president at Workshop 8, the architectural vision was to save as much as possible from the existing structure and to celebrate the authentic midcentury character and industrial expression of the building in its revisioning.
“We knew we couldn’t bring this historical building to life without also enhancing the spaces around it. Our patios and greenways and other outdoor spaces play a key role in establishing Stanley as a community gathering place,” said Mark Shakers, Flightline Ventures.
The 2018 USGBC Mountain West Awards will be presented at the Rocky Mountain Green conference, May. 3 and 4, at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center during the 4 p.m. Keynote address.
