The new South Wing of the St. Vrain Community Hub offers a wide range of services, including health coverage, food assistance, immunizations, job training, employment assistance and more. Boulder County wanted the project to exemplify a functional, sustainable building. The 75,000-sq-ft addition uses solar power and advanced technology to conserve energy and reduce water use. It features a 91.5-kW PV system, which will result in 48% energy-use savings and 43% energy-cost savings over the county’s previous location. It is on track to receive LEED Platinum certification. Other unique features include salvaged wood from a local church, a recycling and composting program, a regional demonstration garden and comprehensive transportation options.
