DaVita World Headquarters
Size: 450,000 sf
A Fortune 500 kidney care service provider, the DaVita World Headquarters and training facility is the heart of DaVita for its 41,000 “teammates” who work in over 1,900 dialysis clinics across the country.
Designed to accommodate 950 “teammates” locally, the facility supports a unique culture and provides a workplace environment where the CEO is the Mayor of the DaVita “village”, teammates work in “neighborhoods”, and where thousands of teammates annually come for training and support at “DaVita University”. Three two-story interior atriums dispersed on several levels provide an important visual, physical and emotional community connection between neighborhoods (floors) and across the building core.
A sustainable and healthy workplace is provided (pursuing LEED Gold Certification) whereby daylight, views and fresh air are provided for all community functions. DaVita University, serving the training and learning needs of thousands of teammates annually, is located on the 7th floor to allow daylight, views and walk-out access to an exterior landscaped and furnished terrace. The top level, typically non-accessible in most buildings, is home for the large “DaVita Marketplace”, a multipurpose space for community “Town Hall” meetings and daily cafeteria service. This unique space provides soaring expanses of glass and a large walk-out landscaped and furnished rooftop terrace to refresh and inspire teammates and visitors alike with the 300 days of sunshine and Rocky Mountain views Denver has to offer.
