Denver Union Station in Colorado is undergoing a massive transformation and Structurflex’s US team has played an instrumental role in shaping the new transport hub.

The transformation of 42 acres of former rail yards into a sustainable, urban mixed-use development is scheduled for completion mid 2014. The US$500 million redevelopment is one of the most comprehensive transit-oriented projects currently under construction in the United States. The site was underutilized for decades. In the mid-1980s the city began looking for ways to make the land more valuable and turn it into a new economic lifeline for the Denver region and the state of Colorado.

As it nears completion the Denver Union Station Neighbourhood Transformation project has picked up an American Institute of Architects Honor Award for Regional and Urban Design. This award recognizes distinguished achievements that involve the expanding role of the architect in urban design, regional and city planning, and community development.
