Friday October 24th marked a glorious afternoon to celebrate the groundbreaking of the newest addition to the TAXI campus, Freight Residences.Continue
This $11 million development will cater to young parents and their children. Once completed, it will house 49 units and feature a 10,000 sq. ft. shared front lawn, where children can play in view of their parents’ windows.
This particular groundbreaking was unlike many others, as the laughter of children could be heard while they were playing festive fall games, and adults enjoyed a lovely spread of hors d’oeuvres from Fuel Cafe coupled with signature cocktails from Garnish—everyone involved was very merry indeed.
After a couple of hours of indulging and mingling, project developer Kyle Zeppelin stepped up to the microphone to say a few words about Freight Residences and thanked the community for their effort to make this dream a reality.
Shortly after Kyle’s speech, his 5 year old daughter Lulu (dressed as a construction worker, mind you) hopped into an excavator and began to break ground. The sight was adorable to say the least.
The party drifted on until sunset, and those who attended were happy to be a part of this wonderful gathering. Freight Residences is scheduled for completion in 2015, with units becoming available in Spring 2015. Monthly rents will range from $1,200 for one-bedroom units to $2,400 for two and three-bedroom apartments. We hope we might see you around the TAXI campus as one of its newest residents!

The BRS office, teamed with Alan Ford Architects, was pleased to participate in this year’s Canstruction Denver event.Continue
Every year, cities across the globe participate in this great charity event that solicits from both students and professionals in the field of architecture, engineering, construction and the like to construct “cansculptures” to raise awareness (and money) for world hunger. Using canned food of the teams’ choice, they must construct a design without manipulating or damaging any of the cans and labels.
This year’s Denver event was held at the History Colorado Museum, which had sculptures on display for the public to see for nearly 2 weeks. Viewers were encouraged to donate either $1 or a can of food in order to cast a vote for their favorite design. Given a 10 ft. x 10 ft. x 10 ft. space the BRS/Alan Ford team, “Cans-N-Plans”, used over 1,200 cans of beans and 200 cans of tuna to construct their design. After 4 hours of stacking, turning and reinforcing, the team completed their Wile-E Coyote-inspired design, entitled “I Think I Can”. With most of our design consisting of a double-wythe, running bond of canned beans, we used our knowledge of horizontal reinforcement to get the job done. Once the public display was over, the teams decanstructed their designs and boxed them up to be shipped to the local food bank.
The Canstruction event is a great opportunity that offers a unique design challenge for a wonderful cause. This was not BRS’s first rodeo at Canstruction and it sure won’t be the last!Hide Full Post
