Description: 

The Parks, Recreation and Libraries (PRL) Department is expanding the England Park Greenhouse Center in Westminster, CO. Improvements include building a second greenhouse (6,000 square feet), a small office building for staff (1,800 square feet) and site enhancements. The project will also help to integrate the operations facility into the neighborhood by adding decorative metal fencing, landscaping and sidewalks along the perimeter. A plaza and demonstration gardens are included in the plans and will be open to the public, likely during standard business hours. 

Wells Concrete produced and erected architectural insulated wall panel, hollowcore and IT beams for this project. This small, but very important project allowed Wells Concrete to implement a very significant innovation in the precast industry. Wells used new micro etching technology, this process enables acid etch finishes of exposed concrete surfaces with only the use of standard water washing. This advancement in technology may result in the removal of harmful chemicals in processing of concrete panels. Highly intricate form liner was also detailed for the project. Standard, non-pigmented concrete was also selected to provide an additional level of value to the project.
