Colorado Office Update 23

It’s a wrap
Steakhouse at Monarch Casino, Black Hawk
Part of the casino’s expansion to draw non-gamblers with fine dining, KHS&S completed the interior Venetian plaster to set the tone for the sophisticated steakhouse. The multi-tone, three-dimensional plaster has the look of genuine polished natural stone. To meet the accelerated schedule, the specialty finish was achieved with the assistance of artisans from the Las Vegas Office.

Something to celebrate
The Meow Wolf Denver project continued to receive industry accolades as the recipient of the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry (AWCI) Excellence Award for interior plaster. Five texture techniques including gun texture, molding cloth, paint on drywall, direct apply plaster and 3D plaster were required to create the massive psychedelic non-traditional art exhibit.

What’s next
14th and Court, Denver
KHS&S was brought on during the Design Assist phase for this architecturally stunning hotel to achieve the desired look and budget prior to construction. The 13-story tower’s shape is inspired by the growth pattern seen on the iconic aspen trees of Colorado, whose branches produce ‘eyes’ on the trunks’ surface. Bringing together their depth of knowledge, resources from Preconstruction, Computational Design, Architectural Solutions and other Regional Offices contributed their expertise to bring value to the project for this first-time client. The KHS&S construction scope set to begin in January 2023 includes exterior metal studs, sheathing, insulation and GFRC skin.

Standout project
One River North, Denver
More than 18 months was dedicated on the front end collaborating with the architect, project engineer, owner, general contractor and the KHS&S Design Assist and Computational Design teams shaping this eye-catching architectural wonder. With a canyon vertically tunneling through the 16-story residential tower, the exterior and interior becomes a work of art. The carved-out, 4-story core resembles a slot canyon, comprised of more than 13,000 square feet of water elements and landscaping. Construction has started with prefabricated framed wall panels featuring an EIFS plaster finish, some as large as 40 x 15 feet, being flown into place. At a nearby warehouse, 6 x 7-foot rebar panels with lathe are being prefabricated to create the canyon shape. The 33,500 square feet of chip system is targeted for installation in early 2023.
