The City of Steamboat Springs and Routt County have partnered together to create a Green Building Program with the help of a grant from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA). City and County Staff have used this grant as well as additional funds from the city to hire a consulting team. We are pleased to announce that we have selected Architectural Energy Corporation and What's Working Inc. to assist us in developing this program. These companies have a tremendous amount of experience developing and implementing green building program here in Colorado and across the country.
