Aurum Golden Apartments
The Garden of the Gods, the Rocky Mountain Range, and the Denver Broncos are arguably the pride of Colorado, and not exactly in that order according to some. If you add a mix of 20 million barrels of beer per year and a handful of red rocks, you will find yourself in the city of Golden, Colorado.
The city of Golden in Colorado is home to the largest single-site brewery in the world with a production capacity of 20 million barrels of beer a year. Not only that, but it is a popular place locals choose to stay in when visiting the world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheater. The gold standard of Golden, CO applies to both these wonderful attractions.
Our featured project, Aurum Golden Apartments, is an apartment building that strives to meet this standard. Gone are the days of college dorms or entry level apartments that hardly meet health and safety requirements. This apartment building places an emphasis on its residents to “Live ExceptionallyTM.” Aurum hopes to present an innovative housing model that aims to reinvent living with community at the core. A setting where a modern generation can blur the boundaries between work and play. A place where everything is within reach; a concept called collective living via the incredible amount of amenities found within the gated community. For more information, click here.
As any wise person knows, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Aurum Golden Apartments have raised this bar and they know that their HVAC cannot be the thing that holds their residents from living exceptionally.

Gold standard this, Denver Broncos that, let’s get down to brass tacks. The valves are Lead-Free for potable water – domestic systems even though they are installed on the HVAC system. Compact design and very simple installation – the actuator can be wired remotely which saves space. The Streamline valve is the first actuated valve in the industry to use a ceramic disc to modulate the flow. Ceramic discs have been used for decades in plumbing fixtures because they are durable, very low torque, and shut off against high pressures with zero leak-by.
We reached out to our rep and they had this to say about the project:
“LONG sold 350 Qty. Griswold no-lead brass Streamline Control valves with automatic flow limiting cartridges for the Aurum Gateway Apartment project. These were used in an application with fan coil units that use domestic hot water coils to heat the space. The Streamline valves are the perfect solution for these applications because they are smaller than conventional control valves. The Streamline valves are smaller because the actuator is internal to the valve. Also, this Streamline valve configuration reduces installation time because the balance cartridge is internal to the valve also, giving the contractor less fittings that they must install. The contractor was impressed with the ease of installation and the performance of the Griswold Streamline Control Valves.”
