Gold Hard Hat Award

The Enhanced Hazardous Waste Landfill – Phase 1
Submitted by ClearWater Construction

This seven-building firefighting training center campus was built for North Metro Fire Rescue District, a multicounty fire rescue district that serves portions of the north Metro Denver. The campus was constructed in the style of a small community to allow NMFRD to conduct real-life fire emergency simulations for first-time and ongoing training.

The 15-acre ground-up campus includes a four-bay fire station, a four-bay fleet maintenance building, classroom/office building, warehouse, infield area for outdoor- related rescue, and a three-building fire-training center.

The campus also features an outdoor training area for fire emergencies other than those found within buildings.

Silver Hard Hat Award

Windsor-Severance Library Addition
Submitted by Thorp Associates

The Windsor-Severance Library project created a seamless, 5,000-sq-ft addition to the existing 12,000-sq-ft library, including interior design and remodeling of the entire facility. Located on a tight property with little available space for expansion, the library’s project program further complicated design by effectively requiring additional space on three sides of the existing building while enlarging the number of parking spaces.
