Owner’s Representation, Capital Needs Assessment
Kavod Senior Life is a Denver nonprofit that provides life-enriching experiences to older adults through a broad range of housing and support services. The organization owns and operates three connected high-rise buildings that include a total of 398 apartment homes. Marx|Okubo was initially retained by Kavod Senior Life to conduct a capital needs assessment of its three aging buildings. After the identification of over $10,000,000 in needed capital improvements, Marx|Okubo was hired as the owner’s representative to oversee the renovations.
Marx|Okubo professionals work to preserve value in aging buildings that sustain communities. We help our clients to identify capital needs and limit unforeseen risk during renovation or new construction work. Through the process, priorities such as enhancing of fire/life safety components have taken precedent and Marx|Okubo has been assisting Ownership in deciding how to enhance these areas in these aging buildings while maintaining as many of their renovation goals as initially set forth.
As a nationally recognized architecture and engineering consulting firm, Marx|Okubo’s projects are lasting testaments to the far-reaching impacts of our commitment to quality.
