DENVER (PRWEB) December 01, 2017
On November 17 at this year’s ACE Awards Gala, Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) received an Associated General Contractors of Colorado (AGC) Award for Construction Excellence (ACE) honors.
During the gala, AP took home the prestigious Award for Construction Excellence for Best Building Project – General Contractor ($10 - $40 million category), which was awarded to the Block 32 Utilities Administration Building project.
The Block 32 Utilities Administration Building in Old Town Fort Collins is the first building in the state of Colorado, the third in the US, and the fourth in the world to be certified as LEED Platinum for new construction under the new U.S. Green Building Council LEED v4 standards. Designed to house the administrative functions of Fort Collins Utilities, it is the first phase of the City of Fort Collins’ plan to redevelop their municipal services complex and create a more welcoming civic center. This new 3-story, 37,500-sf municipal office building was designed to be one of the most energy efficient buildings in the state and incorporates sustainable features, such as photovoltaic panels, a prefabricated insulated panel envelope and windows, the state’s first perennial outdoor living wall, and a rain garden.
“We remain committed to producing innovative, high-functioning buildings for our community and this project is an example of how that work pays off,” said Senior Vice President Tom Horsting. “We are incredibly proud to be a part of these building endeavors in Colorado and to be recognized by this great organization.”
