NREL Research Support Facility

NRELClient: Haselden Construction LLC
Golden, CO

Striving to become a model for building efficiency and net-zero energy design, the 222,000-sq.-ft NREL Research Support Facility (RSF) in Golden, Colo., identified and addressed issues of building sustainability on multiple scales.

The perimeter columns are recycled natural gas pipe harvested from fields in Louisiana. Now rather than extracting fossil fuels deep underground they are the literal pillars of strength of a building supporting the effort to minimize the impact of human life on earth through research and development. One of those developments at NREL led to the invention of the transpired solar collector, a steel panel used as part of the exterior cladding on the RSF.

Though PVS Structures has participated in the industrial market since the early 1900s, the company expanded its focus on large, complex industrial projects in the 1980s. Alaskan North Slope work, along with various coal, gas and other projects throughout North America, kept PVS Structures busy through the 80s and beyond. Activity reached new heights in the mid to late 90s with large projects in China, India and the Philippines, solidifying our status as a true global steel supplier. Our strength lies in managing sizeable, multifaceted projects, and our history in high seismic adds value as we tackle these industrial jobs.

Front 1 Front 2Track Turnouts

Closely connected to our bridge projects, our portable temporary turnout design is utilized by capital program work groups to clear mainlines regardless of existing track infrastructure.

Our temporary track turnouts:
  • Reduces the need to tie up sidings or hold the mainline overnight or during off-hours
  • Establishes nightly or off-hour tie up locations nearly anywhere
  • Minimizes on-track distances traveled
  • Reduces risk of equipment collisions
  • Increases production and decreases project duration
Installation Process

1) Install pre-plated switch ties
2) Install turnout rails
3) Install point selection leap frogs

PVS owns the perpetual, exclusive, worldwide rights and licenses under its Patents and Patents Pending to manufacture and distribute the Temporary Track Turnouts.

PVS Structures does a good job for us with the information they provide and the manner in which they provide it. This is a major reason why Kiewit Power can be more selective with whom it includes.
