The Denver 911 Communication Center is a 43,000 SF major renovation of an existing building, which hosts the city’s 911 communication center and features an operations floor, data center, administrative spaces, and training areas.
Group14 provided LEED services, energy modeling, Xcel Energy Design Assistance (EDA) consulting, fundamental & enhanced commissioning, and measurement & verification services for the communication center.
The project team worked with the City’s Building Department to develop a cost-effective strategy that included maintaining critical elements of the relevant NFPA codes, while also excluding costly proportions that had little benefit to the project.
Sustainable strategies for the project included access to public transit, electric vehicle charging stations, and materials manufactured using recycled content.
This LEED Gold Commercial Interiors project reduced potable water use by over 35% annually. Through occupancy sensors and ENERGY STAR appliances & equipment, the project achieved a 57% lighting power density reduction. Moreover, Denver 911 has purchased a renewable energy contract to supply 100% of the building’s electricity from renewable sources for a minimum of two years.
