Website visually summarizes “greening” of Colorado historic landmark
The Alliance for Sustainable Colorado has established a central resource for building trade professionals, including contractors, engineers, architects, and designers, to increase available tools and education that advance energy-efficient design and construction. Their building , a 38,000 sq. ft warehouse built in 1908 and located in Denver’s Lower Downtown Historic District, was renovated in 2005 with green materials and collaborative design features.
As a “Multi-Tenant Nonprofit Center”, the Alliance Center offers affordable office space to almost 30 non-profit organizations whose missions address sustainability. The building is a tool that provides a base for tenants and like-minded organizations around the state to jointly develop programs that advocate for policies and practices of sustainability. The Alliance Center is also a model of sustainability in an older building.
The Alliance website features an easy to follow guide to the materials and features of the rehabilitated landmark, with links to vendors and suppliers. See the Alliance site>>
