Proj Overview


In a market starving for condos, POP Denver offers attainably priced housing that was made possible in part by precast concrete construction. The five-story building is located at the corner of 6th Avenue and Santa Fe Boulevard in Denver’s Santa Fe Art District, a neighborhood enlivened by art studios, galleries, murals, international cuisine, and First Friday Art Walks.

Precast concrete offers benefits such as quality, speed of construction, and long-term durability. The knowledge of our designers, the craftsmanship of the manufacturing staff, and the talented team assembled to plan and safely erect the total–precast structure are all considerations that made precast the best choice.

Key Project Attributes

  • Erection team utilized a unique tool, a luffing tower crane, to accommodate large holding capacity in narrow movements on the constrained site, placing heavy precast members throughout the structure.
  • Proportions, orientations, composition, rhythm, and door and window openings all had to work together with the precast concrete structure.

Project/Precast Scope

  • Mid-rise five-story building with 123 units and a two-level parking structure with 104 spaces.
  • 1,323 precast concrete pieces including beams, wall panels, double tees, columns, and spandrels. The floor system consists mainly of 10-in.-rib slabs, but 18-in. and 24-in. double tees were used in areas with heavy loads.
  • Precast concrete producer Wells overcame material supply-chain issues to keep construction delays to a minimum.
