Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge Administration Building
This is the premier urban National Wildlife Reserve in the nation and has been a work in progress as the site has transitioned from an Army facility associated with weapons manufacturing during WWII through decommissioning to its current use as a wildlife refuge. The site had 250,000 visitors in 2015 and is expecting 1 million annual visitors in the future. Otak, as a subconsultant, provided architecture, landscape architecture, and structural design services for a new headquarters building and meeting facility for the USFWS administrative staff, separate from visitor facilities. The project consists of a 4,200 sf headquarters building, a 1,000 sf meeting annex building, a 56-space parking lot, realignment of entrance driveways and gateway features, expansion of the existing parking lot and associated hardscape, landscape, and utility systems.
