 Commercial Painting in Denver: Finishing a Luxury Apartment Building

Are you looking for a commercial painter to take your project across the finish line?

Especially when you work in the HOA or property management industry, your projects often have multiple variables to consider, including trades to coordinate, timelines to manage, and the overarching budget that runs through them all.

At Shaker Painting, we put our specialized painting experience to work for our clients, smoothing the process wherever we can.

As a case in point, let’s take a closer look at a project we just finished in Denver’s eclectic River North Art District.

Painting New Construction in the River North Art District

This luxury apartment building stretches upward 7 floors, and includes diversely-sized units, amenities, and a parking garage. The location really couldn’t be better either, tucked in the heart of Denver while also being right next door to Coors Field and Lodo.

We were invited to paint and hang custom wallcoverings, adding the finishing touches to this beautiful facility. As a local company, it was such a privilege to contribute to (and transform) our beautiful Downtown Denver Skyline.

Specifically, the scope of our work included:

  • Complete interior painting throughout the lobby, fitness center, stairwells, hallways, and offices.
  • In addition to the walls/ceilings, we also painted the doors, trim, and sills.
  • We hung wallcoverings throughout the lobby, fitness center, corridors, and all common areas.
  • Outdoors, we painted the metals handrails and ADA ramp with high-performance products.

Special Product Note: Anti-Graffiti Coatings

In any urban environment, graffiti can be a real issue. We used a specialized anti-graffiti product for the lower 20 ft of this building, just as a preventative measure. Essentially, a clear-coat barrier prevents the paint from bonding/adhering to the surface, making it much easier to remove.

Painting a High-Traffic Apartment Complex

As one of the final trades present, our work continued as the apartments began to fill. In fact, the building was at 50% capacity by the time we were done.

On top of that, we had to work in the dense, downtown Denver environment. And did we mention that the Rockies’ baseball season was in full swing (literally)? Add throngs of fans during the home games to the mix.

This is where experience and project management really come into play.

  • Communication is key! We worked closely with the General Contractor, ensuring peak efficiency during every step and stage.
  • Our skilled, experienced team knows how to work in fast-paced environments, never sacrificing quality or attention to detail.
  • We held weekly Toolbox Talks and monthly Summit Safety meetings to review any safety concerns or opportunities.

Please take a moment to review the photos we’ve shared, just to get a better sense of both the scope of work and the finished product. After all, the old cliche still rings true: a picture is worth a thousand words.

Larry Healy

From the RFP to the initial walk through – from the proposal acceptance to the planning session – from the first day of work through the final day – every person at Shaker was professional, thoughtful, friendly and helpful. The project was completed well within the anticipated time frame and at a very reasonable cost. During the quality control walkthrough at the end of the project no deficiencies were noted. Every member of the community had only praise for the excellent job Shaker did. It was the best painting project I have ever been involved in as a Community Association Manager.

I highly recommend Shaker painting to all our friends and family.

I think that the best part of the project was Jason Moore who was the project manager. He was always in communication and completely handled the whole project. He was extremely professional and we enjoyed working with him.

Everything. From Jason's first bid to the final coat of paint with [the project manager’s] crew, we were very pleased with the communication, the attention to detail and the care with which they protected the house, minimized the sanding dust and cleaned up after the fact carefully. The worry that we would have a major cleaning effort after the fact. We were able to clean and put back all the furniture, pictures and furnishings in less than a day.

Facilities Manager
It is my great pleasure to provide this letter of recommendation for Shaker Painting Inc. Shaker Painting recently completed a full exterior trim replacement and paint of our five-story building, Broadway Junction, at 1165 Broadway, Denver CO. The Shaker team conducted themselves with professionalism and performed in a manner that was the least disruptive to all parties affected by the work. Closing-off parking spaces, managing staging area(s) for materials and the overall safety for pedestrians were some of the challenges presented to Shaker. Not a single complaint was issued for the duration of the work. Communication was excellent as Shaker personnel were required to access the roof and maintain the security setup at the building. As we have worked with Shaker on previous projects, we will continue to work with Brent Rumpf, Ed Gonzales, Jason Moore, and the rest of the Shaker team on future projects and I would recommend the same to any property and/or property management organization.
