LAKEWOOD, COLORADO - Pinkard Construction Company has begun construction of the new, $1.5 million Urban Scouting Adventure Center for the Boy Scouts of America Denver Area Council.
Working with Venture Architecture of Denver, Pinkard Construction is converting 20,000 of unoccupied space into an indoor climbing facility; air rifle and archery ranges; educational kitchen space; multipurpose/performance areas; classrooms and office spaces. Enhanced outdoor facilities will include an urban camping environment and campfire meeting areas.
Mechanical/electrical retrofits include the removal and replacement of electrical equipment and distribution system; and a revised mechanical distribution system to accommodate the new space.
