Polystrand® develops a thermoplastic composite that can reportedly eliminate waste, be recycled and is environmentally friendly. The company is enjoying success and is expanding their Montrose facility to the Denver metro area. We provided full mechanical, electrical and plumbing design for the three-phase construction of this new plastics manufacturing facility located in the Compark development just south of Centennial Airport.

We designed a 2-story 16,000 square foot office area. We planned both open and closed office space to include conference rooms, a cafeteria, a training room, and computer rooms with 24/7 cooling and group restrooms.

The final phase of design services included a chilled water system and chilled water distribution to the manufacturing equipment and specific cooling systems for the 85,000 square foot manufacturing area. We designed the manufacturing area and 19,000 square foot warehouse space was to include: storage, a maintenance shop, receiving and delivery area, docks with overhead doors and snowmelt system, and electric and propane storage. The facility required a large electrical service at 12,000 Amps, 480Volts to support planned manufacturing processes.

Total construction cost: $14 million.
