The City of Golden in Colorado sought to build new offices in order to relieve staff from overcrowding and outdated work spaces. Instead, rand* helped them to repurpose a 33-year old, 6,000 square foot utility shop steel building into new offices for the Public Works Department. The remodeled building has an energy-efficient wall panel system, LED and fluorescent lighting, low-use water fixtures, and utilizes other environmentally-friendly materials.  rand* also helped with the conversion of a previously 100 percent impervious surface to one that is now 62 percent native grasses and trees (and only 38 percent impervious). The building also boasts a new bicycle rack for employees and visitors, as well as an employee shower room to encourage green commuting.


This is Golden’s first LEED certified facility. rand* had to coordinate between city agencies, as well as with our design partner, McMenamin Design Associates, in order to complete this project.
