As Seen In The Colorado Real Estate Journal – May 4-17, 2016

Accurence will occupy a build-to-suit at the Colorado Tech Center that’s scheduled to be completed in February 2017.

A software company founded in the Colorado Technology Center in Louisville will move to its own facility there next year.

Etkin Johnson Real Estate Partners will develop a 17,940-square-foot build-to-suit for Accurence, which develops inspection software for homeowner insurance claims. The building will be located on 2.38 acres at 305 S. Arthur Ave.

“We are very pleased to be developing a build-to-suit facility for this growing company,” said Ryan Good, Etkin Johnson executive vice president and partner. “We’re excited for the opportunity to deliver Accurence a modern building that meets their specific needs and seamlessly reflects their culture and brand.”

Accurence, which currently occupies space at CirclePoint Corporate Center in Westminster, will relocate when the building is completed in mid-February 2017.

“This project is a significant step for Accurence and comes at a time when the company is seeing its fastest growth,” said Accurence President Jake Labrie.

Accurence develops and maintains mobile and desktop roofing software applications for insurance carriers and roofing contractors nationwide. The new facility will serve as its sole operations center, housing 59 employees with room for growth the company anticipates in coming years.

“The new facility will have a great impact on the team and company. There is already excitement internally, and being able to define the space and incorporate company cultural elements is a great opportunity. We think this will help us attract great talent – a priority for any software company in today’s market,” Labrie said.

The building will contain an open office area, modern presentation conference room, private huddle rooms and approximately 1,500 sf of warehouse space. There will be a spacious kitchen with two glass roll-up doors that will open to one of the office’s two outdoor patios, capitalizing on views of the Flatirons.

“Accurence was founded in the Colorado Technology Center. Moving back after six years to build a facility in the business park just seems right,” said Labrie. “The early team really enjoyed the Coal Creek Trail, Old Town Louisville, Lafayette and the mountain views. The growth in the park and surrounding areas have only made the location better.”

Dean Callan & Co. Senior Associate Hunter Barto represented Accurence in the transaction.

“The high-quality, single-story flex product that Etkin Johnson had been delivering to the CTC was very appealing to Accurence,” said Barto. “This particular site was a perfect fit in terms of what it could accommodate. This will really be a signature building and a great way to mark Accurence’s return to the CTC.”

Elizabeth Cox, Etkin Johnson construction manager, is overseeing construction of the building. Ware Malcomb is the architect.
