The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 8 Headquarters building, comprised of 305,000 square feet, is located in the Lower Downtown Historic District in downtown Denver adjacent to Union Station. Its brick architecture blends into the Historic District area. A sunlight-filled glass atrium rises through its entire nine-stories. Building amenities include 226 interior parking spaces and retail.

The building is designed to use one-third less energy and water than a building of similar size and received a Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating. Some of the outstanding examples of sustainable design include:

  • Green roof
  • Wind turbines
  • Natural light in 85% of floor space
  • Daylighting, dimmers and occupancy sensors
  • High efficiency and waterless plumbing fixtures
  • Extensive recycling program and green housekeeping measures
  • Forty-eight solar panels mounted to building exterior
  • Heating and cooling system (HVAC) designed for energy and ventilation efficiency
  • Floor plan design that addresses solar orientation and local wind patterns to optimize energy efficiency
  • Recycled and environmentally friendly materials were used in the building frame, interior surfaces, and workspaces
