DOWNTOWN DENVER’S LARGEST PROJECT
Goodbye hole in the ground, hello rising core! Downtown Denver’s largest project is officially out of the ground.
Watching a project like 1144 Fifteenth Street is quite the journey. From the ground-breaking ceremony to watching giant foundation piers go down over 100 feet and needing aerial coverage for peeking in the hole, we can finally see this 40-story, 603-foot tall tower rise from the street.

EFCO’S HELPING MIDAMERICAN REACH HIGHER ALTITUDE
MidAmerican Energy says it’s building the tallest land-based wind turbine in the nation in southern Iowa. The Des Moines-based power company will get the added height by building the wind turbine tower from concrete instead of steel, a first for the company. The extra 100-plus feet enables the turbine to capture more wind energy, the utility said.
PACREP LLC, a private Owner/Operator/Developer headquartered in California will be opening a luxury hotel and condominium tower in the heart of Waikiki. The Ritz-Carlton Residences is a 37-story highrise scheduled to open in early 2016. PACREP LLC’s development team included General Contractor Albert C. Kobayashi, Inc. of Waipahu, Hawaii, who once again chose EFCO as their partner to supply a complete forming package for the concrete on the 37-story tower and lower podium shops.
