Denver Police Crime Lab Final Update

The Denver Police Crime Lab very recently cut its ribbon for opening making this the third recently completed project in the Civic Center district. We were even lucky to get an inside look of the crime lab when it was somewhat completed. Here are all the updates for this one.

Denver Police Crime Lab Update #3

Not much has changed since I did the last update in March but it is always nice seeing a project completed without any of the construction fences up and the street landscaping in place. Here are some angles of the new and shiny Denver Police Crime Lab.




On the left is the atrium at the front of the building. You can see that it is lit up and there is some decorative art hanging from the ceiling. I bet this looks really cool at night. On the right, I was able to capture the back side of the Cesar Chavez Modernization. The crane has been taken down and the facade is pretty much complete along with the parking garage.


I love seeing all these new buildings and streetscapes. Downtown Denver is becoming a great world class city.

    I really dig this seems to fit really well amongst its neighbors in the area–especially seems like it draws some elements from the hamilton building of the denver art museum, like those little rectangular windows.

    The last one is the Cesar Chavez building, correct?

    JE Dunn was honored to have been the General Contractor for the Denver Crime Laboratory. Our men and women took special pride in working with Denver’s law enforcement community to provide them with a facility that will help make our City safer for all. Special kudos are in order for Gregg LeBerge, head of the Police Department’s Crime Lab and Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey. Both poured their heart and soul into the project.

    Probably the cheapest looking, ugliest building to be build in Denver in many years.
