Our Solution

An important aspect of this project was maintaining access to and use of the existing fire station during construction. The construction was staged to ensure the fire department was not hampered in their service to the community. The building utilizes phased lighting and geothermal heat pumps are used for heating and cooling the new addition; landscaping controls and cleans stormwater runoff. The building’s energy-efficient design utilizes MidAmerican Energy’s CustomPlus program.
