40th-logo.jpg

Denver, CO (August 1, 2012) – Denver-based SLATERPAULL Architects this month celebrates its 40th anniversary in the Denver business community.  The firm marked the occasion with a firm-wide day of service and partnership with Denver Urban Gardens (DUG) to build the first community garden at a Jeffco Public School under the DUG program, which supports more than 100 community gardens in low-income urban neighborhoods and schools.

The 40-person SLATERPAULL staff built the sustainable community garden at Jefferson High School (alma mater of one of SLATERPAULL’s partners) as part of DUG program -- teaching students the importance of improving their neighborhood and growing organic produce right in their own backyard.  This is the first community garden built for a local high school and the first in the Jeffco Public School District under the DUG program.  The activity provided a platform to honor the firm’s anniversary and its passion for sustainability and environmental stewardship.  SLATERPAULL will provide ongoing support of the garden and work with students throughout the year on the project as an extension of their green business practices and commitment to community service. 

“Celebrating forty years in business with a service project was a perfect way to give back to the community that has embraced us for the past four decades and to live out our mission of ‘Design for a Sustainable Future,’" says Jamie Pedler, president and CFO of SLATERPAULL Architects.   “It is been and continues to be our deep commitment to serving our community and our clients by delivering high performance environments that has afforded us this milestone achievement.   We look forward to the next 40 years as we continue to grow and contribute to the community by designing inspiring, functional, and sustainable spaces.”

"We are grateful to SLATERPAULL for their support of our schools, not just in the quality of their work but with their community service efforts focused on the garden at Jefferson High School,” says Tim Reed, Director of Facility Planning, Jeffco Public School District.
