Army to Consolidate Operations into Headquarters Building

rma9may.pngIn mid-May, the U.S. Army will begin construction around Building 129, which is located northeast of the Visitor Center near Rattlesnake Hill in the Army administrative area (see map).

The purpose of the project is to consolidate all Army staff and contractors from two buildings into Building 129, which is the Army headquarters building at the site. This change will enable the Army to reduce its footprint at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, improve worker and traffic safety, and increase energy and operational efficiencies.

The project will include:

  • Renovating the interior of Building 129 to accommodate all Army staff and contractors
  • Demolishing the existing roads, parking areas, and sidewalks around Building 129
  • Grading the site to improve drainage
  • Constructing new roads, parking areas and sidewalks to improve visitor wayfinding and complement a new entry to Building 129
  • Building a secured laydown area for equipment needed for ongoing site operations and maintenance

Refuge visitors are asked to obey safety signs and avoid the construction area.

All fieldwork should be completed in January 2025. If you have additional questions, please call 303-289-0200.
