Twin Valley Electric Cooperative serves over 3,200 electric meters in parts of four counties in Southeast Kansas and is headquartered in Altamont, Kansas. Cooperative Building Solutions worked with the Twin Valley Electric Cooperative board and staff to plan, design, and construct a new facility located on the edge of Altamont. The new 28,000 square foot facility provides for a modern, efficient environment for members and employees to conduct their business. Twin Valley Electric Cooperative’s old facility had become very inefficient and lacked the functionality necessary to respond effectively to its member’s needs.
The new facility will provide improved accessibility for both the members and the public. Safety and security of the cooperative’s members, employees, and equipment were primary goals for the new facility. Provisions have been made to protect the assets of the cooperative, and assure their employees and crews are able to respond quickly in emergencies. Line equipment and vehicles will be stored inside, and hardened construction will protect employees and critical equipment during storms.
Construction was completed in July and the staff was able to move into the new facility in early fall of 2014.
