Elder Construction helped the City of Fort Collins construct an addition and remodel to Nix Farms Garage & Shop. This project will expand the City of Fort Collins’ Natural area’s facilities including 10,000 square feet of sitework in order to construct a 5,000 square foot pre-engineered metal building addition for their new garage facility; a 1,300 square foot metal building addition to their existing maintenance shop facility; and a 3,500 square foot remodel to their existing maintenance facility. Nix Farm is the Natural Areas Department headquarters for the City of Fort Collins and was purchased by the city from Tom and Patsy Nix in 1996. The farm also serves as a foster home for as many as 15 young men at a time, and has a rich history with a mission to “conserve and enhance lands with natural resource, agricultural, and scenic values, while providing meaningful education opportunities.”
