The site houses the Summit Stage, CDOT, Search and Rescue, and County Vehicle Maintenance Operations. The new design incorporated sustainable site and building design strategies to increase operational efficiency and reduce long term operating costs.
Site improvements include on-site storm detention, 10kW photovoltaic array, native vegetation and one-way counterclockwise traffic flow to improve safety and operational efficiency. A new storm sewer collects snow melt and directs runoff to the detention area.
The building design incorporates green technology strategies for an energy efficient building and a healthy work environment for employees and visitors. Big picture strategies include daylighting, super insulated thermal envelope, a radiant slab heating in maintenance and snow melt building apron, and a south facing passive solar preheat wall panel system. The new buildings are state of the art maintenance and operations facilities for all Summit Stage and County Fleet vehicles.
