Project Profile: Davita World Headquarters

Davita World Headquarters

Located in Denver, Colorado off the 16th Street Mall and adjacent to the Millennium Bridge, the 14-story Davita building doesn’t just provide life-saving kidney dialysis services, they provide a sanctuary for employees to enjoy. This 500,000 square foot office building and parking garage houses 950 “teammates” (as referred to by Davita leadership) and serves to act as a “home away from home.” To further enhance the sense of community and promote fresh air access for employees, Davita features multiple rooftop terraces including a 6,000 square-foot terrace that features trees, outdoor dining, a fire pit, spaces for employees to plant herbs for the kitchen and comfortable seating for 335 people. Davita encourages use of these rooftop spaces for meetings, lunches, or a simple escape from the office setting to enjoy sunshine, fresh air and unobstructed mountain views of Pikes Peak and Long’s Peak.

Douglass Colony performed a variety of scopes to bring this roof to life including:

  • Performed horizontal waterproofing on a variety of decks
  • Plaza pavers and non-skid wood pavers
  • Fully-adhered white PVC membrane roofing
  • Sheet metal flashing and trim
  • Custom rigidized steel cap on the 14th level terrace
  • Snow guards
  • Vapor barriers
  • Planters

Douglass Colony is focused on providing “green” options for the Denver community and this project really stands out in terms of capabilities performed to provide eco-friendly options to enhance employee health. As a result of Douglass Colony’s work and other measures taken, Davita World Headquarters was awarded a LEED Gold certification and is a marque project for sky rises nationwide.
