Holliston, MA – Colantonio Inc., a construction management and general contracting firm, recently completed the New Public Works Facility in Medway, MA. It’s the company’s first zero energy building.
The facility’s expansive photovoltaic array system was designed to provide one hundred percent of the building’s energy needs on a net annual basis.
The new facility includes a 32,500 square-foot pre-engineered building that accommodates administrative offices, vehicle repair and storage bays, a truck wash, shops and storage, along with a 4,100 square-foot vehicle canopy and a new salt shed.
Colantonio installed solar panels that cover the entire roof of the main building and the vehicle canopy.
The project, designed by HELENE KARL Architects, will seek zero energy certification by the International Living Future Institute next year based on actual 12-month performance data.
