Denver Broncos' UCHealth Training Center was designed with metal roof, soffit and wall panels in multiple colors, patterns and textures to complement the team logo and communicate the organization's brand of excellence. It was designed to allow practice during inclement weather.

The roofing system is a combination of structural steel deck, which allows for long spans between purlins; the roof acts as a large structural diaphragm. A steel structural system creates the long-span spaces for the structure, completed in December 2014. Metal wall panels span large distances between columns without intermediate framing.

Heath Steel installed a metal roof supplied by Chief Buildings, a division of Chief Industries Inc., and formed metal soffit panels from Morin Corp., a Kingspan Group company. Additionally, Heath Steel installed corrugated insulated metal wall panels supplied by Kingspan Insulated Panels Inc.

The Denver Bronco Football Club's $26 million, 118,474-square-foot training facility houses a full-size practice field, sports medicine facilities and locker rooms. The practice and training center features hospitality space, retail space, media and studio space, restrooms and seating areas.
