New Flatiron Headquarters Building Completed by Turner Construction

November 16, 2010

Turner has completed construction of the headquarters for Flatiron Construction Corp., one of the nation's largest transportation and infrastructure contractors, in Firestone, Colo. The 41,660 square foot building is part of Flatiron’s corporate office campus that includes six structures on 30 acres. The campus accommodates approximately 250 employees.

The building is anticipated to receive a LEED Silver rating from the U.S. Green Building Council. Compared to a similar-sized traditional office building, Flatiron’s headquarters is 24 percent more energy efficient and 42 percent more water efficient. Some of its sustainable features include the following:

  • High efficiency, low-flow plumbing fixtures
  • Lighting fixtures equipped with occupancy sensors designed to turn off when there is no movement or noise for an extended period of time
  • Twenty three Solatube skylights on the second floor
  • 30 percent of all building materials used on the project are from recycled materials
  • Low-VOC adhesives, sealants, paints, flooring systems and composite wood products to improve air quality

“I am extremely proud that the project is anticipated to receive a LEED Silver rating,” said Tom Rademacher, Flatiron president and CEO. “Not only can we be proud of the state-of-the-art training space and conference technology now available to us, but Turner recycled 92 percent (more than 401 tons) of the construction waste generated during the construction process.”

Turner Construction Company partnered with Ware Malcomb Architects under a design-build contract with Flatiron. Flatiron and Turner are both subsidiaries of HOCHTIEF, one of the largest construction services providers in the world.
