 Global Design Firm Sasaki Opens New Denver Office to Expand Western U.S. Reach
 Building upon a decades-long legacy of successful project collaborations in the region, global interdisciplinary design firm Sasaki announced the opening of a dedicated office
in Denver to better serve clients throughout the Western United States and Canada. Located at 3120 Blake St., the new office will be led by directors Anna Cawrse, ASLA, PLA and Joshua Brooks, ASLA, PLA.
“Sasaki has had the privilege of working on some of the most impactful projects in Colorado in recent years – from the Strategic Development Plan for the Denver International Airport to work with the River North Art District, the public realm
design for the future Denargo Market riverfront district, and a master plan for CU Boulder,” Brooks said.
Brooks is a landscape architect, urban designer and planner with a master’s degree in city design and development from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His previous work in Colorado includes Festival Park in Castle Rock, I-70 cap park and urban
design framework, as well as the 1144 Fifteenth Street Plaza.
A graduate of Colorado State University and Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, Cawrse is internationally recognized for her ability to transition master planning of the public realm into realized space. She also currently champions the firm’s research into the impact of climate change on parks in the Intermountain West, in collaboration with the National Recreation and Park Association. This research, entitled Climate.Park. Change, will result in a toolkit for park agencies to begin adapting and building parks for a changing environment.
Her experience in Denver includes projects in the River North Art District, Sun Valley Eco District, Federal Boulevard, and the Denver Game Plan.

Howell Construction completed the new Ent Credit Union service center located at Park Central in Highlands Ranch. Established in 1957, Ent has expanded to 14 counties along Colorado’s Front Range and has more than 380,000 members. Howell is honored to be Ent’s building partner for multiple new sites in the Denver Metro area.
The new 5,300 square-foot steel framed facility is on a 1.23-acre lot and incorporates state-of the-art technology to provide members with added conveniences. In addition to in-lobby and drive-up service, this full-service location also offers Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs) in the drive-up lanes. Howell developed the new branch site as part of the Shea Properties Central Park Retail Center project.

We have thoroughly enjoyed working with our new designer- friends at Keys + Lauer Architects, and have established a very positive relationship with them and our mutual client. This has been a fun group to work with!” said Jeremy Kellogg, Project Manager for Howell Construction.
