Inside 1800 Larimer, smart design and state-of-the-art building technologies create more productive and healthy workspaces by taking advantage of the outside environment—natural light and fresh air:
- Floor-to-ceiling windows (9 ½ feet high) bring natural light deep into workspaces while interior lighting systems can adjust automatically to changing daylight.
- Under floor air systems use principles of convection to remove stale, stuffy air, and allow employees to individually control airflow and temperature in each workspace.
- Raised floor environments enable reconfiguring space for ever-changing business needs. Movable wall options, and WIP wiring options for computers and telecom can be modified quickly with little disruption and at relatively minimal cost.
- A centered four-interior column configuration enables the most efficient use of space in any building design. Results from a recent study show that 1800 Larimer’s space is 9-18% more efficient than five comparable office buildings.
Compelling new evidence shows that employee productivity increases of 6-16%1 can be achieved through better air quality, individual thermal controls, and better lighting range – all a part of the 1800 Larimer environment.
