Work has been completed on the 5,287 square foot new Nederland Public Works Facility. The over $2 million project, constructed on a 5-acre site in the Arapahoe National Forest included clearing portions of the densely-vegetated lot, and extensive earthwork to bring the building site to final grade.
To the Town of Nederland’s delight, MWGC was able to construct this facility as a net-zero energy building. Photo voltaic solar panels installed on the roof, and storm water retention areas contribute to reducing this building’s carbon footprint. The Nederland Public Works facility will more than likely generate more electricity than it consumes, on a weekly basis.
Included in the facility are administrative offices, drive-through vehicle maintenance bays with a two-post vehicle lift, shop space, overhead chain hoist, bunk rooms, and a conference room. Adding to the comfort of the building, is in-floor radiant heat. As the Public Works Department is responsible for water treatment, wastewater treatment, and parks and trail maintenance just to name a few. MWGC knew it was imperative to give the town of Nederland, and its employees a state of the art work space.
