Founded in 1995, TruStile is an industry leader and innovator in interior doors. The company’s new 310,000 square foot headquarters is comprised of approximately 50,000 square feet of office space and 260,000 square feet of manufacturing/production space with a large outdoor amenity deck. Every door throughout the facility showcases a different model designed and manufactured by TruStile, creating a walking showroom of the brand.
Like the company’s products, the overall design blends modern technology with old world craftsmanship. Utilizing a modern mountain aesthetic, the space includes an expansive reception and lounge area with a steam fireplace, client-facing conference and training rooms, open office areas, private offices, collaborative areas and huddle rooms, a fitness center, and a large café with an exterior patio. To reflect the company’s target residential market, the space incorporates furniture, lamps, and accessories such as books and houseplants to give it a more residential feel.
The project also required multiple creative civil engineering solutions due to being located within the 100-year floodplain with tight site constraints not allowing space for traditional detention. The site required a floodplain development permit/LOMR-F and a very large underground detention system. The restrictions involved with construction near the onsite overhead transmission line and the desire to limit the export from the site pushed the project to use an underground detention solution that was the first of its kind in Colorado.
