Dubbed the Mile High City and situated just an hour east of the famous Rocky Mountains, Denver is Colorado’s capital and most populous city. Given its dual characteristics as a major metropolitan area and its proximity to the ski slopes and hiking trails of the mountains, Denver is a go-to tourist destination for millions of people every year. To meet the high demand of visitors wanting to experience all the city has to offer, Denver cultivated a robust tourism and hospitality industry that will soon welcome the luxury hotel chain Thompson Hotels into its fold.
Beginning construction in 2019, the Thompson Hotel project is an exciting collaboration of T2 Development, architects DLR Group, Layton Construction, and Denver commercial concrete contractors, The Conco Companies. The hotel will be on the 16th Street Mall, a booming commercial district in the heart of the city with restaurants, bars, retail shops, businesses, and arts and entertainment complexes. The upscale hotel will take the place of a surface parking lot and will loft to a height of 13 stories with over 200 rooms. Its high-end amenities will include an outdoor sky patio and fireplace, a full-service restaurant and bar on the street level, a rooftop bar with private event rooms, and meeting and event spaces situated throughout the hotel.
While the hotel itself will fit right into the dynamic 16th Street Mall, its location will pose some challenges for its construction. Primarily, the close proximity to the many other businesses and ongoing activities of the area will constrain access to the construction site and require strategic use of large equipment. For this reason, the Conco Companies is an ideal partner in the project, as they have decades of experience in tackling logistically challenging projects. After lending their expertise in the preconstruction and planning stages of development, Conco is slated to commence construction in August 2019. For their part of the Thompson Hotel project, Conco will be providing Denver concrete pumping and placing, formwork, concrete reinforcement, concrete finishing, and shotcrete services as well as construction trucking. The scope of work includes drilled pier foundations, pier caps and grade beams, mat foundations, slab on grade, shotcrete foundation walls, elevator core walls in two locations, and elevated post-tensioned structural slabs. Once completed, the Thompson Denver promises to be one of the premier hotels in the city.
