Northglenn City Hall in Colorado will be the State’s First Municipal Core Green Building
Cumming Group, an international project management and cost consultancy firm, is hosting a groundbreaking event for the highly anticipated Northglenn City Hall. The groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Monday, June 5 at 5:30 p.m. at the future site of the new City Hall, the corner of Community Center Drive and Memorial Parkway. Members of the community, local leaders, and stakeholders are invited to attend.
The current facility, nearly 40 years old, has minimal resources, inadequate safety infrastructure, and lacks the proper space to provide services to the community efficiently. The groundbreaking ceremony for the new facility will mark the beginning of an exciting chapter in Northglenn’s civic development.
Design for the new Northglenn City Hall was headed up by Denver-based Anderson Mason Dale Architects with FCI Constructors to serve as the general contractor. Cumming Group will provide project and cost management services and its team will manage the project from construction kick-off through final completion, ensuring full project transparency for the local community.
The new Northglenn City Hall aims to be an inspiring civic resource for residents, a vibrant gathering place, and a proud anchor of the Civic Center. It will foster a sense of pride, camaraderie, and community among Northglenn’s residents and employees.
“The new Northglenn City Hall represents our commitment to providing exceptional services to our community while embracing sustainability and innovation,” shared Mayor Meredith Leighty. “We are thrilled to break ground and begin this transformative project.”
Key Features of the New City Hall Include:
- Expanded Space: The new City Hall will offer 32,600 square feet of space, accommodating all existing divisions, departments, and services, including the City Council Chambers.
- Net Zero Energy: Embracing sustainability, the facility will be Net Zero, generating as much energy as it uses. This commitment to green practices aligns with Northglenn’s dedication to environmental stewardship.
- CORE Green Building Rating: Northglenn City Hall will be the first municipal building in Colorado to achieve the prestigious CORE Green Building Rating certification. This distinction highlights the project’s adherence to the highest standards of sustainable design and construction.
- Welcoming Public Spaces: The new City Hall will feature two large public lobbies, creating inviting environments for community members to engage and access city services. Additionally, two community rooms will provide versatile spaces for public events and meetings.
- Rooftop Solar: To further reduce its carbon footprint, the new City Hall will incorporate rooftop solar panels, harnessing renewable energy and contributing to a more sustainable future.
“Our team is excited to continue the relationship with the City of Northglenn, bringing insights learned from previous projects into the development of this City Hall Building,” said Nate Richards, senior project manager at Cumming Group. “Commitment to this project is critical to understand the needs of both the community and the City staff who will be utilizing the facility every day for decades to come.”
Scheduled for completion in the Fall of 2024, the funding for the new City Hall, estimated at $33.78 million, has already been fully secured without imposing new taxes on Northglenn residents. The city has allocated funds generated by the ½% sales tax and the 4% Special Marijuana Tax, both dedicated exclusively to capital projects.
