Commuter Rail Maintenance Facility
The $65 million, Commuter Rail Maintenance Facility (CRMF) will store and maintain trains for the East, Gold, North Metro, and first segment of the Northwest rail lines in Denver, Colorado. The facility incorporated sustainability strategies that achieve LEED and reduce the fiscal impacts over the lifetime of the building.
- CMRF will achieves a modeled energy savings of 32%.
- Efficient mechanical systems such as VRF, heat recovery heating/cooling units, hot water radiant floor heating, condensing high efficiency boilers, variable speed air compressors, energy recovery process exhaust systems and indirect/direct evaporative cooling have been Services to improve energy efficiency.
- The high-bay maintenance area is heated by radiant floors which are served by an 89% efficient hot water boiler.
- Energy efficiency will be optimized through the use of large, thermally-broken aluminum windows and double pane skylights provide reduced the need for artificial lighting.
- Optimized daylighting through skylights in the high bay area.
