Ninnescah Rural Electric Cooperative built a 28,920 SF facility on 10 acres of land that the Coop purchased a mile north of the city of Pratt, KS. The facility combines a conventional steel frame office structure with a Pre-Engineered Metal Building (PEMB). The PEMB houses a Warehouse, Vehicle Storage, and offices for the operations functions.
The Office building is 7,720 SF and is clad with a mixture of brick and native Kansas limestone. The roof is light gauge metal trusses and standing seam metal roofing. The PEMB has 6,080 SF of Warehouse space, 12,100 SF of truck storage, and 3,520 SF of offices for Operations and Linemen.
We designed the facility to include a variety of energy efficient features. These features include the use of ground-source geothermal energy for heating and cooling, radiant floor slabs, and LED lighting.
