The new 13,000 square foot headquarters is located adjacent to the Commerce City Civic Center and functions as offices for the District’s administration and includes community rooms, as well as an exhibit to showcase the District’s antique fire truck and historical artifacts. The lobby was designed to serve as a welcoming, transparent lantern to draw people in from the outside and then once inside allow for visitors to appreciate the building’s character. The primary building materials used included; glass, stone, masonry, and steel. An energy efficient geothermal system with 14 wells was installed for heating and cooling needs.
“The new South Adams County Fire Department Headquarters project is the result of a great team working to identify risks and develop mitigations to keep the project on schedule and under budget. As the result of a proactive cost control strategy, the Owner was able to incorporate a number of alternates and added scope items, at strategic times throughout the construction, to ensure maximum value.”
