Denver, Colo. (September 11, 2015) – The City of Loveland’s Service Center has won a PCI Design Award as the top project in the Best Warehouse/Storage/Distributions Center category. The PCI Awards Program recognizes design excellence and construction quality using precast concrete. All award winners will be showcased in the PCI Design Award Winners summary article published PCI’s Fall 2015 Ascent magazine.
The City of Loveland’s Service Center project features four buildings with a special precast concrete architectural color scheme highlighting the use of a unique form liner to create a showpiece facade. High-performance insulated precast concrete wall panels were chosen to add durability and energy efficiency to the project. This is the City’s second LEED certified building project, recognizing building strategies and practices for high-performance green buildings. Use of local materials and recycled steel in the precast panes contributed to LEED points.
A collaborative design-build team including Golden Triangle, RNL, Monroe & Newell, and Stresscon Corporation participated in creation of the four buildings consisting of 45,274 square feet of work space. The buildings house the public works’ solid wastes, storm water, and street departments. The new addition doubles capacity for the Public Works department.
Stresscon provided 221 precast pieces, including architectural solid wall panels, insulated walls, double tees, and Dynaspan. The precast panels feature an architectural gray and white acid-etch design with multiple colors and simple detailing to blend the new buildings with existing campus color schemes. With edge to edge insulation, the wall panels achieve an R-value well in excess of the ASHRAE 90.1 requirements for all wall systems.
Loveland Service Center has been serving the City of Loveland since 1986. The $15 million expansion project allowed for the consolidation of many of the City Public Works divisions from six locations into two locations. The expansion also adds significant changes to the storm water draining system, and the realignment of the storage yard used by the City departments.
