Citizens hired Cooperative Building Solutions to evaluate all of their facilities and to make recommendations on how to best utilize their facilities while improving efficiency, functionality, responsiveness, and customer service.
The result of this recommendation was to build three new facilities one of which was this new 52,679 sq. ft. service center located in St. Genevieve, MO. Each facility includes office, warehouse, vehicle storage, separate maintenance buildings and a pole yard component. Each of these facilities has been designed to improve functionality of the operations, incorporate low maintenance building materials and utilize energy efficiency building systems. Examples of these improvements include: installation of a ground source heat pump system to heat and cool the facilities, spray foam insulation at all exterior walls, motion sensors in rooms to control lighting, brick facades at office buildings, standing seam metal roofs and 100% generator back up capability.
