The Wells Fargo Demise was a complex project involving three interconnected buildings at two different levels, totaling over 60,000 SF. The main goal of the project was to “demise” a portion of the floorplate and vacate it in order to save on leasing fees. This was no simple task as it involved the relocation of a large technical department, the consolidation of a processing group, the creation of a new office tenant suite, and the reorganization and revitalization of the main banking conference center - plus common area upgrades. Not only was it programmatically challenging due to a large equipment inventory & high security requirements, but it was also a code challenge due to the interconnected buildings not being on the same parcel. Creative team thinking solved a critical circulation necessity by creating Denver’s shortest “pedestrian tunnel”. Careful listening (to the project manager, to the end users, and to the city) was by far our most important job because all of the small details were so vital to the project’s success within a very tight timeline.
