The exterior of the housing building is clad with 8,000 square-feet (743 m2) of Pura® NFC PU02 Classic Oak. “Each of the surrounding buildings has its own colour palette, so we wanted to have something that would fit in softly, but not look like any of the others,” Cunniffe explains. “Some of the buildings have soft green or greyish siding. The Classic Oak looks good with the Aspen Police Department’s brick and with the wood siding utilized on the adjacent housing complex.”

“There is usually lots of sun, periods of dry, and sometimes wildfires so we have to consider all of those things when we design. We chose Pura® NFC for sustainability, durability and weather resistance.”

Although located on the same property, the police station and the housing units each have their own look. “The police station is in the process of receiving its LEED Gold designation as well as a WELL Building certification,” says Cunniffe. “It has extensive glazing, high windows, ample natural light, and features brick and stone. When choosing siding material for the employee housing units, we looked at a variety of options.” An important consideration were the high altitude and demanding climate. Thanks to their advanced technology, Pura® NFC siding solutions are built to withstand harsh climatic and environmental conditions for many years. Sun, rain and snow have no significant effect on the surface. “There is usually lots of sun, periods of dry, and sometimes wildfires so we have to consider all of those things when we design. We chose Pura® NFC for sustainability, durability and weather resistance.”
