Cochlear Americas USA HQ
Denver, CO (May 29, 2020) – Howell Construction recently completed the Cochlear Americas headquarters project located in Lone Tree, Colorado. This unique DLR Group designed project has a bit of everything in this 161,218 square-foot renovation. Notably themed by unique colors on every floor, levels 5, 4 and 3 are a balance of open office workspace, conference and training rooms, huddle areas and two micro-kitchens per floor. The LVT flooring and Rulon ceilings flow through the corridors and main walkways as linear light fixtures pass through ceiling clouds suspended over the workstations. Nearly all conference and huddle rooms have Allsteel glass fronts that keep the space feeling open and bright, while the custom millwork pieces in the micro-kitchens provide employees an area to gather for coffee and lunch. The core restrooms were renovated on all floors to receive new tile, restroom fixtures and partitions, and back-lit mirrors.
The first floor at Cochlear boasts a high-end board room with switchable glass film, walls covered in floor-to-ceiling millwork and an executive dining area. The brand new servery includes a raised platform with built-in planters and seating as well as a custom coffee bar with a tile face and waterfall edges. The entire space can expand and serve as a gathering area with garage doors opening to the refreshed outdoor area with a new deck, fire pit and landscaping. The first thing you’ll notice when you enter the building is the reception desk with intricate detail and radius edges to match the Cochlear branding. Moving through the freshly tiled lobby you’ll arrive at the brand-new fitness area which includes the yoga studio and new locker rooms. Several existing conference rooms on the first floor were refreshed and received operable partitions, window treatments and a new AV package.
“I speak for the entire Howell team when I say it was a lot of fun to bring this creative design to fruition. I’m very excited for Cochlear to occupy and enjoy their new space as they continue their mission of serving our community.” said Chad Lincoln, Project Manager for Howell Construction.
