The Action Center’s phase I expansion is the renovation of the Cottonwood Plaza I office building to create The Action Center’s new Program Services Building. Scope of work on the 12,600 sf two-story brick structure includes a first floor gut and build-out into a food and clothing distribution facility, and a second floor gut and build-out to create new office space, kitchen/break room and conference room. 
The project also included installation of a stairway, elevator and loading dock/receiving area; new roof top mechanical units and associated ductwork; and new plumbing systems, electrical service and distribution system. 
The Action Center’s new Program Services Building is located at 8745 West 14th avenue in Lakewood, adjacent to The Action Center’s current facility. 
The Action Center is a human-service non-profit organization that offers the single-most comprehensive range of services to struggling residents of Jefferson County and the homeless. The Action Center works to meet the immediate needs of clients, treating them with respect and dignity; then, providing clients with the resources needed to develop pathways to self-sufficiency, breaking the cycle of poverty.
