Design-Build Team Summary

Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed

As a new developer to the U.S. investing in a thriving Denver market, First Gulf selected The Beck Group’s integrated design-build delivery model for speed to market and to better manage risk. The ownership group had no previous experience with general contractors in the U.S. and therefore did not have a strong opinion or understanding of the construction market. The Beck Group in partnership with First Gulf was able to meet this incredible challenge by delivering the project on time and at the targeted GMP that was established at the end of Schematic Design.


A thoughtful, collaborative and integrated design-build process resulted in a contemporary and elegant glass facade that provides an intriguing juxtaposition between modern and historic architecture. Designed and constructed by The Beck Group, 1401 Lawrence is a 22-story Class AA office, totaling 478,000 square feet with premium office and retail space. The high rise elevates office product in Denver while offering a timeless architectural style that fits comfortably within its location and the surrounding urban context.
