Project D1 Sports and Panorama Orthopedics

Project D1 Sports and Panorama Orthopedics

National developers, The Keith Corporation and Sports Med Properties, set out to create a revolutionary space in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, that combined state-of-the-art medical facilities and world-class athletic facilities. The occupants, D1 Sports Training and Panorama Orthopedics & Spine Center, needed facilities for athletic training and physical therapy services. Working with the developers and occupants, A M King designed and built a facility which includes 4,200 square feet of physical therapy space; 11,000 square feet of combined exercise, field training and locker room space; a 6,500-square-foot basketball court; and a 12,000-square-foot medical office building. The structure, which maintains the scale of a typical medical office building, incorporates a 30-foot-tall conventional steel frame with brick veneer exterior, sectional glass doors to create an open-air training environment, a mezzanine with storefront exterior and large windows to take advantage of Rocky Mountain views.
