Most efficient building methods to construct a new truck maintenance facility.

Located in northeastern Colorado, this privately owned surface mining operation has been exploiting its significant reserves of bituminous coal for local electrical production since 1977. The site has received positive recognition from environmentalists for its successful and progressive reclamation programs, which have seen the reintroduction of various flora and fauna. This progressive attitude also came into play as Trapper Mining looked into the most efficient building methods to construct a new truck maintenance facility.
