Progressive Edge Technologies staff worked with the General Contractor DPR to ensure all Fire Life Safety systems were installed per design and code requirements and tested and finalized with the Golden Ranch Fire District.

The new site is a previously underdeveloped property in the Rancho Vistoso neighborhood of Oro Valley, Arizona, with spectacular mountain views. The project achieved a LEED®-NC Gold certification by utilizing sustainable design elements and construction techniques, as well as having an emphasis on recycled construction materials. There are two levels above ground, along with a below-grade basement containing mechanical and support elements.
