The one-story steel and concrete 9,275-square-foot building is going up at 5610 Flatiron Parkway south of the Boulder County Sherriff Department’s headquarters.
The project cost is $3.9 million and construction is expected to be completed in nine to 12 months.
The project incorporates several sustainability features including energy-management controls, low-wattage LED and T8 lighting, R-30 roof insulation, low-flow plumbing fixtures, recycled pain, native drought-tolerant landscaping, and light timers and occupancy sensors.
Coroner Emma Hall said the new building will be one of the cornerstones for her vision of a progressive, forward-looking department.
“This building will serve many generations of Boulder County residents,” she said.
