Ent Credit Union celebrated the Aug. 26 grand opening of its new headquarters building on the north end of Colorado Springs. The event was attended by the Colorado Springs mayor, Ent employees and members of the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce.

The building features a two-level cafeteria that faces Pikes Peak, a fitness center, eight training rooms, modern workstations, private meeting spaces and several other amenities. The campus also is home to a parking structure with 830 parking spots. Construction included significant site infrastructure improvements and a water feature with 19 separate waterfalls and 600,000 lb of rock.

GE Johnson was the general contractor for the 27-acre, five-story facility, designed by Davis Partnership Architects. The building will house about 800 of Ent’s 1,300 employees. Shea Properties is the development manager. The project started in October 2019.

JE Dunn Construction joined the University of Colorado Denver, Stantec and other members of the design-build team on Aug. 12 to celebrate delivery of the new CU Denver City Heights Residence Hall and Learning Commons project. Construction started in December 2019, and despite challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, the project was completed on time. The building was ready for first-year university students to move into on Aug. 18.  

The 181,000-sq-ft, seven-story, 270-unit housing facility includes 555 beds as well as a dining area and a learning commons facility. It is comprised of two wings with communal spaces scaled to encourage student interaction between floors. The residence hall and learning commons are connected through a sunny courtyard that joins the new building and other campus buildings such as the Lola & Rob Salazar Student Wellness Center and the Tivoli Quad.
