Construction manager/general contractor Pinkard Construction Co., Lakewood, has completed the town of Erie’s Leon A. Wurl Service Centerunder budget and 56 days ahead of schedule.

An intensive preconstruction planning phase kept design-related changes on the project to .6%, or 75%, below the industry average. The final contract was $202,000 below the original contract, allowing Erie to apply the savings to other projects and uses. The locally funded project was fast-tracked to allow the town to completely relocate its maintenance operations well ahead of the winter season.

The Leon A. Wurl Service Centerhouses maintenance operations, shops and offices for the town of Erie Public Works and Parks departments. It features a 9,560-sq-ft, Class B office building that connects with a 16,728-sq-ft maintenance building on approximately 7.5 developed acres.

Sustainable features on the maintenance building include a white TPO roof, photovoltaic panels with a power purchase agreement and full heat recovery.

The center also includes a 250,000-sq-ft service yard with a 3,000-gal. fueling station, magnesium chloride/salt storage facility and truck wash pad.

OZ Architecture and CH2M Hill, both of Denver, provided design services.
