Osprey Packs, Inc., an independent pack company located in the high desert and mountains of Southwestern Colorado, reports the completion of their headquarters expansion project.

Osprey is proud to have incorporated elements of LEED and sustainable building standards into the project. Sustainable choices included: Non-VOC paints, insulation comprised of recycled blue jeans, solar-tracking skylights that allow for a 75-percent reduction in electricity use, recycled carpet padding, recycled ceiling tiles, and waterless urinals. Additionally, cabinet backings were pre-finished to prevent off-gassing and the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system was upgraded with improved air filters.

Expansion to the Osprey Worldwide headquarters in Cortez, Colo. was necessary to accommodate unparalleled recent growth and the required staffing increases to meet growing demand. The project converted an underutilized storage area into a 3,200-square-foot office space and conference room with views of the La Plata Mountains and Mesa Verde National Park.

The Cortez headquarters house Osprey's U.S. Distribution Center and Sales, Marketing, Product Development, Customer Service, Warranty/Repairs and Operations.
