One of several landmark office buildings built by Bryan Construction at the Patriot Park development, this 104,000-square-foot, three-floor structure is a testament to our communications skills and commitment to sustainable construction.
We worked closely with the architect in developing an efficient hybrid building core, consisting of architectural-grade exterior precast panels, interior elevator and stairwell cores, and structural-steel column beam joist and deck floor systems. Ribbon windows and radiused curtain-wall components created a distinctive, technical exterior appearance. Value-engineering budgets were provided on a continuous basis as the design evolved, ensuring that the developer’s projected costs were adhered to once construction began.
We also worked very closely with the design team in targeting LEED Gold certification for sustainable construction. And we got it: This was the first LEED Gold certified building in Colorado Springs.
Near the completion of the core structure, defense contractor ITT (now Exelis) leased the building. Bryan Construction performed the entire build-out in three months, to include specialized computer and server rooms, a voice-over-data communication network, CRAC unit cooling systems, high-end office and lobby finishes, a physical-fitness area and classified-document storage.
