Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center Golden, Colorado

Envisioned as a 3,800 sf Net Zero building, the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center includes spaces for exhibits, conference and training rooms, and offices. The design allows the facility to act as a hub for visitor activities, including refuge tours, and interpretive and environmental programs. The Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge is 16 miles northwest of Denver on the grounds of a former nuclear defense facility. The site is generally undisturbed and provides habitat for a number of threatened and endangered species. Otak is providing architecture, landscape architecture, and structural engineering services for this visitor center.
