This 75,000-sf addition to the Boulder County Health and Human Services building features an open design and is extremely energy efficient, generating much of its own power using solar energy and advanced technology to conserve energy and water use.

The new facility is composed of structural steel, composite metal panels and masonry that connect to an existing County services building. The building resulted in 48% energy use savings and 43% energy cost savings over the County’s previous location. Other unique features include salvaged wood from a local church, a recycling/composting program, a regional demonstration garden and a comprehensive transportation program that includes a bike maintenance area and electric vehicle charging stations.

The building is targeting LEED platinum. It was dubbed Colorado’s Greenest Building of 2015 by the USGBC and received a merit award in the Green Building Category in the 2016 ENR Mountain States Best Project Awards.
