TONIGHT: DEN Trains to the Concourses to Undergo Scheduled Overnight Shutdown. Bridge Security will be the 24-hour Checkpoint starting at 8 p.m.

DEN trains to the concourses will be shut down overnight for six hours for scheduled testing of the train’s electrical power system. Employees and passengers will need use Bridge Security, which will be the 24-hour checkpoint starting at 8 p.m. Starting at 9:15 p.m., those who need to reach the B and C concourses will be guided via signage and/or airport personnel to a bus that will take them to the concourses. These changes will be in effect from 9:15 p.m. Feb. 20, to 3 a.m., Feb. 21. It is recommended that passengers who need to get to the B and C Concourses during these hours should arrive to security at least 30 minutes earlier than they would have otherwise to ensure they have enough time to move through the airport.

About LEED

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification.

LEED Certification has four levels: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Executive Order No. 123 mandates all new City buildings and major renovations will be certified to LEED Gold Certification. Read the DEN LEED Campus Case Study to learn more about LEED Certification and what DEN is doing to integrate energy efficiency, conservation and sustainability into our facilities and systems.

Concourse C West, Five-Gate Expansion – LEED Gold

The Concourse C West Expansion project provides five new mainline gates and reconfigures four other gates to provide DEN and its major tenant an efficient and state of the art facility.

The Gold Level means this project has achieved 20+ more points (72 out of a possible 110) above the minimum level for certification. Working within the constraints of a major existing International Airport and using many of the exiting 20+ year old systems, this level of achievement was difficult for the airport team to achieve. Innovative concepts used to obtain LEED certification included:

  • LED lighting throughout the new expansion.
  • 16% less energy compared with the baseline building.
  • 100% of the energy cost offset with renewable energy sources for the first three years.
  • Diverting over 92% of the onsite generated construction waste from landfills.
  • 20% less water compared with the baseline building.

Westin Denver International Airport Hotel and Transit Center – LEED Platinum

Fire Station 35 – LEED Gold

Denver Fire Department Station #35 is the first station built on DEN property which is not an ARFF (airfield) facility.

The intent of this station is to serve the needs of DEN’s Airport City future public/private development along Pena Boulevard, as well as the new Westin Hotel and Transit Center. The 18,000 SF, two-story facility contains four Apparatus Bays, 10 dorm rooms, a work out room, kitchen and living spaces along with offices for the 24/7 station needs. The second story will contain the offices for the entire DFD DEN Division. The design of the facility follows the new ‘modern west’ aesthetic required by new development while integrating several sustainable and green systems in the building. Innovative concepts used to obtain LEED certification included:

  • Designated preferred parking for users of low-emitting or fuel efficient vehicles. 8% of total parking is designated for LEV/FEV vehicles
  • Exceeding local zoning requirements for green-space by 50% for a total of 27,452 square feet of vegetated open space
  • Targeting a savings of 40% of total indoor potable water usage
  • The project encourages environmentally responsible forest management by using a minimum of 50% Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood based on cost
  • LED lighting throughout the building

DEN Data Center – LEED Silver

Initiated in 2012, the DEN Data Center is the first true Design-Build Project at DEN.

The data center is designed to be concurrently maintainable meeting the Uptime Institute Tier III standards. The Tier III topology targets a demonstrated 99.98% of uptime reliability and reduces unplanned failures to a 4-hour event every 2.5 years or 1.6 hours on an annual basis. The DEN Data Center is designed and constructed for a minimum of N+1 for mechanical, electrical and other systems and components.
The DEN Data Center achieved LEED Silver with 53 points featuring the following:

  • Modular building design fully shop-fabricated in a controlled environment to maximize construction efficiency, reduce construction waste, and maximize the indoor environmental quality
  • The building performs 38% better compared with the baseline building performance
  • The building uses more than 40% less water compared with the baseline building water usage and uses no potable water for landscaping
