The Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company (PESCO) facility is the first vertical construction project to be built at Peña Station NEXT, Denver's "Smart City" development located at the 61st Avenue and Pena Boulevard rail stop on RTD's new University of Colorado A-Line. Mortenson delivered this 112,500-square-foot facility for Westfield Company. The project is part of Fulenwider's larger 400-acre Peña Station NEXT development, where Mortenson is also providing solar and battery storage services. Designed by Farnsworth Group, the building allows PESCO to attain best-in-class facility performance and minimizes waste and environmental impacts. The primary building systems are investment-grade, tilt-up concrete panels and structural steel with extensive glazing in the office areas. Specialty electrical systems were constructed to service the testing and development needs of the ECO lab inside the warehouse and the roof-mounted solar panels. The project is pursuing LEED Gold certification. The facility accommodates 100+ PESCO engineers, scientists and management personnel of the Energy Solutions Group and Sensory Solutions Group of PESCO, as well as Panasonic CityNOW, which is Panasonic's smart city initiative in North America. This facility also includes a 24/7 network operations center that monitors a nationwide network of large-scale solar photovoltaic installations. Mortenson is also part of the team installing the patented dual incline canopies from Solaire on the carport, currently under construction, and owned by Denver International Airport. Mortenson is also building its first battery storage project at the site, as part of the Panasonic and Xcel Energy team bringing the Peña Station NEXT microgrid to life.
