Medina Electric Cooperative recently opened its doors to their new Rio Grande City facility after a year of construction. Directors, employees, and cooperative members gathered for this opening ceremony to celebrate the new 25,000 square foot facility. Congratulations to the employees and members of Medina Electric Cooperative!

CBS built Medina’s new facility consisting of a 9,500 sq. ft. office building, a 6,000 sq. ft. warehouse, a 6,000 sq. ft. vehicle storage building, and a 2,700 sq. ft. covered parking structure. The entire structure was designed as a pre-engineered metal building, including brick and metal panel façade. The facility utilizes LED lighting throughout, rainwater collection for irrigation, and other high-efficiency design concepts. A hardened space was constructed to protect sensitive IT servers and infrastructure. The new secure site is now surrounded by an 8 foot-tall concrete fence, along with access control throughout the facility.
