This building repositioning project transformed a 300,000-square-foot former commercial office space into a new county Human Services Center. The new facility, located in the Park 12 Hundred office complex in Westminster, consolidated an estimated 750 employees from the county’s Human Services Department, Child and Family Center, Head Start and Workforce & Business Center into a single facility. This full facility makeover included a much-needed injection of daylight and rejuvenation.
The transformation included a complete redevelopment of the building’s three levels of offices complimented by a new 4,000-square-foot addition adding a new central entryway and lobby. The interior and exterior rehabilitation efforts allow more daylight to penetrate deeper into workspaces and create an improved thermal envelope. To accomplish this, some of the existing precast panels and masonry walls were removed and a glass curtainwall and aluminum storefronts were added. These improvements are enhanced by a new central plant mechanical system, new electrical throughout, and complete low voltage systems for communications, audio/visual and security.
