Proj Overview


The City and County of Broomfield, Colo., needed to replace its aging recreation and senior center with a centralized facility that would connect the city’s diverse population. The overarching goal was to create a landmark that would not only connect the physical building and lush open space to the existing city campus, but also be inclusive of all generations. The structure would also provide shelter and a safe, conditioned space during severe weather.

A complex, multiphase demolition and full rebuild of the existing facility was required, and precast concrete was selected as the best way to meet an accelerated construction schedule and deliver a modern, striking community facility.
