- 7 boreholes completed to a depth of 300 feet on each borehole
- Denver facility has wind, solar, and geothermal incorporated into design
Greenscape Capital Group Inc. is pleased to announce that the geothermal boreholes have been completed at the Denver Greenpark LLC (“GP”) green parking facility.
The geothermal system at GP will be used to heat and cool the portion of the parking facility that is indoor and climate controlled. The indoor experience that customers can expect at GP is weather-protected, climate controlled and hospitality-oriented.
Seven boreholes were drilled onsite, each to a depth of approximately 300 feet. The boreholes were drilled with a 4.75″ bit, and loaded with 1″ diameter high density polyethylene geo loop, and then grouted with thermal enhanced grout. During the heating season, the circulated fluid temperature will drop and during the cooling season, the loop field temperature will be increased. Typical temperatures of the loop field will range between 40 – 75 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on weather. The work was completed by Rogers & Sons Inc., based out of Denver, Colorado.
In addition to the geothermal heating and cooling system, other green features at GP include a solar power array and wind turbines for power generation, LED lighting and electric vehicle charging stations.
Greenscape and its operating partner, Propark, are working with a number of green product suppliers to build GP as the world’s greenest parking facility.
