The 26,500-sq-ft Southeast Wyoming Welcome Center just north of the Wyoming-Colorado border is a model of energy efficiency and highly sustainable design.
The mechanical and electrical systems were designed to limit energy demand while maximizing the use of onsite resources. Extensive daylighting strategies reduce electrical demand, and renewable-energy power sources such as wind turbines, rooftop solar panels and building-integrated photovoltaic glazing generate building power. A ground-source heat pump system heats and cools the building using the constant temperature of the earth.
