Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado Uses Warehouse Skylights to Provide Daylighting.

Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado finished construction and opened a state-of-the-art warehouse in Colorado Springs in January of 2009. With more than 40,000 square feet of warehouse space for food, it more than doubled their former capacity.

The new warehouse is LEED* Silver certified. This rating is based on construction techniques in five key areas:

  • Sustainable site development.
  • Water savings.
  • Energy efficiency.
  • Materials selection.
  • Indoor environmental quality.

The warehouse skylights reduce the need for electric lighting (increasing energy efficiency) and help to provide employees with a healthy workplace (indoor environmental quality).

What We Did:

  • We installed the skylights during construction on time and under schedule

Product Used:

  • (2) 6′ x 38′ Versa-Ridge Fiberglass Translucent Skylights by Naturalite.


  • Good quality translucent light.
  • Design spreads light out throughout the warehouse.
  • Well insulated product


  • Correct the daylighting and solar heat levels required for the space.
  • Reduced dependence on electric lighting—increased energy savings.
  • The Food Bank loves the energy savings provided by the new warehouse skylights.
  • Increase the facility’s property value.
  • Healthy, natural daylight in the space with soft translucent light .
  • In work environments, increased daylighting has been shown to increase productivity.
