Charter Communications Fiddlers Green 1 Renovations

178,000 SF

Charter Communications, also known as Charter Spectrum, provides cable television, internet, phone, and wireless services to consumers. Cator, Ruma & Associates was selected to provide the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and technology design for the tenant finish/renovations of the “Fiddlers Green” Denver Tech location. MEP/T modifications of approximately 178,000 square feet of the building included accommodation of new rooms and workstation layouts. Additionally, we provided set permit drawings for the first floor lobby, mailroom, and exercise facility.

  • Large tenant finish
  • Expanded DDC controls system



Mechanical services included a new supply of air ductwork upstream of the air terminal units, fan-powered box installation at perimeter locations with large glass walls, an addition of 14 terminal boxes to accommodate the preliminary floor plan, and transfer air boots at rooms where the walls extend to a ceiling or the roof deck. 

The Direct Digital Controls (DDC) system was also expanded to accommodate new equipment. The controls are compatible with the current DDC system communications protocol.

Plumbing design included domestic cold-water piping above ceilings and in partition spaces within the building. Domestic cold and hot piping was insulated with fiberglass pipe insulation with a vapor barrier. The breakroom plumbing systems were also upgraded. 

Electrical services for this tenant-finish project included secondary distribution, interior lighting and outlet layout, generator design, short circuit analysis, and fire alarm design. Electrical connections were also provided for the new mechanical equipment. The fire sprinkler system was also modified to meet building needs. 

Technology system design included pathways, cabling, and devices for voice/data cabling, television distribution, access control, digital signage, and audio/visual services in training rooms, conference rooms, and sound masking. 

During construction, the CRA team provided start-up assistance including onsite observations and punch list creation.
