This project represents the beginning of the City of Fort Collins’ plan to redevelop their municipal services complex and create a more welcoming civic center.

“We are proud to be part of such a collaborative team to build this state-of-the-art facility that represents the first of its kind in the nation,” said A&P Senior Vice President Tom Horsting at the event.

A light rain failed to dampen the spirits of the crowd gathered to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Block 32 project in Old Town Fort Collins. This project represents the beginning of the City of Fort Collins’ plan to redevelop their municipal services complex and create a more welcoming civic center. Adolfson & Peterson Construction’s (A&P’s) work on Phase I includes the erection of a new 3-story, 37,500-sf City of Fort Collins Utilities Administration Building.

This new municipal office building was designed by RNL Design to be one of the “most energy efficient buildings in the state” according to Richard Shiffer, Principal with RNL, and will incorporate sustainable features, such as solar panels, utilization of batteries, Direct Current power and insulated enclosure and windows. The reliance on Direct Current power, as opposed to traditional Alternating Current, will make this building truly unique in the state and country.

“We are proud to be part of such a collaborative team to build this state-of-the-art facility that represents the first of its kind in the nation,” said A&P Senior Vice President Tom Horsting at the event.

The site, located at the NE corner of Laporte Avenue and N Howes Street, will also include the restored landmark Butterfly Building – part of the Poudre Valley Creamery facilities that used to occupy the site – which was moved 100 feet to the east to make room for the new construction.

Construction on the new administration building is scheduled to wrap-up in the fall of 2016.
“This is a proud day for Fort Collins,” said Doug Johnson, Vice President for A&P. “The City has an exciting vision for this project. Now we have to execute.”
