The Neenan Co. was selected as the design-build partner for the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Region 2 office and maintenance campus.
CDOT Region 2 plans to build a unified campus in the Pueblo area for its office, maintenance and traffic facilities that serve Southern Colorado. The Neenan Co. was awarded the project through a competitive selection process.
The Neenan Co. also recently designed and built CDOT’ s new Region 4 headquarters, its first build-to-suit office building in more than 30 years, as well as a new maintenance facility, which were both completed in 2015.
“We are honored to partner with CDOT again,” said Bob Meserve, senior project manager at The Neenan Co. “We are proud to produce a campus that will enhance the transportation system in our state.”
Design for the CDOT Region 2 campus has started and sites for the project are currently being
analyzed. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2016 with an anticipated completion in 2017. The administration building will be built to LEED-certified standards to ensure increased sustainability
The Neenan Co. also recently celebrated the company’s 50th year in business with its headquarters moving to a 40,000-square-foot office building in Fort Collins – a building the firm originally designed as an industrial facility in 1995.
The space features modem, streamlined details combined with Colorado beetle kill wood and other outdoor-inspired design elements. A combination of both open and closed workspaces as well as upgraded natural light and LED technology contributes to the ambience of the office, the firm noted. A glass garage door in the break area and windows that open to the exterior enhance the connection to the outdoors.
The Neenan Co. also incorporated elongated conference rooms to promote conversation as well as streamlined teleconferencing capabilities to ensure seamless communication to job sites around the country. The office includes a layout and design that facilitates impromptu discussions and team productivity, according to the firm. Additionally, the company “embraced” appropriate acoustics within the space, which features a balance of open desk areas and high ceilings with acoustic capabilities.
