Project Description:

Ziegler Cooper Architects did not skimp on luxury features when it came to the new 32-story Parq on Speer retail and residential community. Encompassing the holistic and smart building approach of the building owner, Greystar, Ziegler Cooper Architects were able to create a high-performance and efficient structure. In the Denver, Colorado area, where flashy new apartment buildings seem to consistently pop up, Ziegler Cooper Architects were able to create a desirable community which appeals to a variety of potential renters. Incorporating high-end finishes and amenities, Parq on Speer offers engineered hardwood floors and quartz countertops in all units, as well as “smart home” technological features, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled lighting, thermostats, and entry.

“I think this project will reset people’s expectations when it comes to amenities just given the scale of what we’re offering.” – Bo Chapman, Greystar’s Senior Director of Development

The property features a total of 50,000 square feet of luxuries including a pool deck as well as a covered dog park complete with an irrigation system. Aiding in the overall high-performance of the building, architects also utilized the SMARTci 1 in 1 continuous insulation system to provide state-of-the-art thermal efficiency for residents. In today’s world, energy efficiency is at the forefront when it comes to large commercial buildings, particularly in an area that has a varying climate. Finding a best practice continuous insulation system was critical for thermal efficiency in the Parq on Speer. Improving overall thermal performance of the structure, will ultimately reduce not only energy use and costs for residents, but extend the life of the building as well.

The SMARTci 1 in 1 continuous insulation system offered Ziegler Cooper Architects a best practice solution in thermal efficiency for the Parq on Speer building. The GreenGirt CMH z-girt sub-framing material eliminates the need for through-metal fasteners. Accomplished with a fastener retention system, this provides a thermal break and prevents thermal energy to travel from exterior cladding to the building studs. This can significantly decrease energy lost as well as energy costs. GreenGirt takes away vulnerability of cold spots caused by through-metal fasteners. Along with eliminating thermal bridging and increasing thermal efficiency, GreenGirt sub-framing also prevents possible moisture damage within the structural walls.

Along with its thermal efficiency properties, GreenGirt sub-framing has the versatility to support a variety of insulation materials while also offering universal cladding attachment solutions. When combined with insulation material, GreenGirt sub-framing component becomes a SMARTci 1 in 1 continuous insulation system. Along with energy efficiency, our SMARTci 1 in 1 System can speed up installation time with its ease of installation process, reducing labor costs, as well as the building timeline.
