With the need for expansion, Denver’s Office of the Medical Examiner was relocated from 14,000 sf of space to a city-owned warehouse completely repurposed into a state-of-the-art forensic pathology and death investigation facility. Spanning 29,000 square feet, the new facility features enhanced technologies to ensure high-quality medical examination and investigation services for the City and County of Denver well into the future.

The facility was carefully designed with workflow processes, safety, security and ergonomics at the forefront of the criteria and boasts sophisticated equipment and technological amenities. Features such as adjustable-height autopsy stations, bariatric lifts, automatic/touchless entry doors, odor control and directional air flow systems with daylighting maintain workflow efficiency and mitigate workplace fatigue.
