Federal building to get new look inside
The 92-year-old Wayne N. Aspinall Federal Building in downtown Grand Junction will be rebuilt from within to meet new energy-efficiency standards.
The General Services Administration awarded a $12.3 million contract to the Beck Group to replace the interior systems of the building to save energy and money.
The agency said it hopes the work will make the Aspinall building a “net zero” building, meaning that it would produce as much energy as it consumes over the course of a year. If that goal can be attained the Aspinall building would be the first “net zero” building on the National Register of Historic Places, the General Service Agency said.
Work is to be completed by January 2013.
