Design-build is all about teamwork, collaboration, and innovation. The importance of these three key elements was ever present in the successful completion of the renovation and addition of the Sie Glass Rotunda to the iconic Denver Art Museum. While not technically a design-build project, the team of Denver Art Museum (Owner), Fentress (Architect), and Saunders (General Contractor) came together to forge a mutually respectful partnership enabling unique and complex problem-solving. Many challenges faced the team as they renovated the original Gio Ponti-designed Lanny & Sharon Martin Building (formerly the North Building initially constructed in 1971) and added on the new Anna & John J. Sie Welcome Center.
This project had everything one hoped for when first entering our people-centric industry: An ownership team made up of the right people, behind-the-scenes team bonding between the architect and contractor, and a “project first” approach from everyone throughout the entire process. The tools and skills each team member brought from previous Design-Build projects allowed each of them to show up every day, from early design through to construction completion, to create a truly integrated team.
Join us Tuesday, October 11th for an in-depth presentation, project tour, and reception to learn more about the project-specific challenges and how teamwork, collaboration, and innovation lead to successful outcomes.
