This structure is a 4-Level garage serving the RTD passengers at Wadsworth Blvd and 13th Avenue, the primary RTD station for the City of Lakewood. The precast concrete spandrels and column covers greatly enhance the appearance of the garage by providing two colors- tan and dark gray. As designed by Gensler Architects, the two colors are used in such a way that the tan panels form a large multi-bay and multi-story “picture frame” effect surrounding the gray elements. This color-defined frame effect is emphasized by a 3 in. projecting gray bullnose that is cast into the tan panels.

In addition to the frame and bullnose concept, many of the gray spandrels were cast on a horizontal ribbed form liner. The resultant ribs, in combination with shadow lines created by the steps in the face of concrete, adds a significant amount of architectural interest to the building.

There are a total of 187 pieces of architectural precast concrete, all cast on a fiberglass form. Most of these pieces contain either the tan or the gray color as a single mix in a given element. However, many of the tan elements contain the gray bullnose. This casting of two colors in the same piece required a great deal of care and workmanship to keep the colors properly separated. All of the elements are given an acid-etch finish that simulates the look of natural stone, but at a significant savings in cost.

The spandrels are tall enough to provide for the Code required 42 in. of personal fall protection. And at 8 in. thick, both the spandrels and column covers also resist accidental vehicular impact.
