Are you passionate about helping others achieve safe building designs, or promoting the adaptive reuse of Denver’s existing building stock?

As a complement to Denver’s proposed Safe Occupancy Program, Denver Arts & Venues is looking for 10 skilled architects, engineers, or contractors to volunteer their expertise toward preserving the city’s creative spaces. In the search for affordable, functional space amid today’s high-priced real estate, many older buildings have been turned into functional new space, but often without the help of a skilled professional to ensure the structure is safe and updated in compliance with city codes.

In an effort to improve building safety, we hope to connect the tenants of these spaces with individuals (or firms) who are willing to offer pro bono consultations or discounted rates, and who have a working knowledge of the International Existing Building Code (IEBC).
