South Adams County Fire Protection District, serving Commerce City, Henderson, and parts of unincorporated Adams County, underwent an expansion, including improvements to existing fire stations and the construction of a new centralized fire administrative headquarters. 360 Engineering designed the mechanical and plumbing systems for the new building, including an energy-efficient geothermal ground-source heat pump system with a bore field.
The ground-up headquarters building design consisted of three floors totaling approximately 14,000 square feet. The basement included an archive storage space, mechanical, electrical, and water entry rooms; and an unassigned area to be utilized by the building owner for future use. Floors one and two focused primarily on offices and a board room with restrooms, break rooms and conference rooms throughout the space.
