THE COLORADO DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (CDOT) SELECTS THE NEENAN COMPANY AS PARTNER FOR REGION 4 HEADQUARTERS PROJECT
Design-Build firm to Oversee Completion of CDOT’s First Build-to-Suit Office Building in More Than 30 Years
FORT COLLINS, COLO. — The Neenan Company, a fully integrated design-build firm based in Colorado, is pleased to announce its selection as the design-build partner for the Colorado Department of Transportation’s first build-to-suit office building in more than 30 years – its Region 4 headquarters. The project will also include a maintenance facility located in Gilcrest.
The Region 4 headquarters, a 40,000 square-foot administrative facility located on CDOT’s existing site along Highway 34, will enhance the gateway to Greeley. The new headquarters will consolidate several CDOT Region 4 engineering offices including staff that were previously located in a facility damaged following last year’s flooding. Colorado State Patrol (CSP) will also join CDOT as a partner in the new building.
The facility will be built to LEED Certified standards to ensure sustainability and increased efficiency, allowing CDOT to recruit and retain top-level employees. Construction is expected to begin in July 2014 with an anticipated completion in 2015.
“In designing this administrative building, we worked collaboratively with CDOT and CSP to understand and facilitate how employees interact in the office so that this new building could improve the way the CDOT team works,” said Randy Myers, president of The Neenan Company. “We are honored to partner on an instrumental project that will serve the needs of our state.”
The 21,000 square-foot maintenance site will support CDOT’s specialty maintenance needs, regional storeroom and associated office space. The site’s construction will begin in May 2014 with an expected completion date of 2015.
