Transforming a Terminal into a Modern Office in RiNo

Brinkman was the chosen contractor on this office construction project due to the Owner’s confidence in our ability to meet the stringent construction schedule which was critical for their federal grant funding and LEED-Certification.

Drive 2 is the second building located on the TAXI mixed-use development, the repurposed 20-acre former Yellow Cab terminal on the Platte River in RiNo. The exterior skin is composed primarily of black corrugated steel positioned in horizontal and vertical orientations, in addition to sections of CMU with exposed masonry joints and glass blocks scattered throughout. The transparency theme is carried into the building interior, where skylights and glass floors spanning from top to bottom allow natural light to penetrate the building’s core. The unconventional placement of large garage doors on all four levels opens the buildings to the urban skyline and stunning mountain views.
