BACKGROUND:

Boulder County Parks and Open Space (BCPOS) is seeking bids from qualified and experienced Contractors for the Wencel barn stabilization, located on the Braly Open Space property, 12191 N. 61st Street, Longmont, CO 80503. This project is funded in part by a grant from History Colorado – State Historical Fund (SHF).

These services are required in order to complete critical structural stabilization work identified by BCPOS’s consulting structural engineer and architect. The selected Contractor will complete all aspects of the project within 180 calendar days from the date of Notice to Proceed. If weather delays are encountered, BCPOS will work with the Contractor to adjust the project schedule.

The circa 1903 Wencel barn is an irregular plan, two-story building that measures 54′ x 31′. The barn features a combination of wood frame and pole construction, with unpainted vertical wood siding and a historic corrugated metal roof over the original wood shingles. Corrugated metal panels were added at an unknown date over portions of the vertical wood siding. The barn’s interior is a patchwork of stables and passageways. A large open hay loft extends across the entire second floor. The barn is currently not in use. The barn is located in the 100 year flood plain.

The barn’s south elevation is dominated by two (2) side-by-side silos and the northwest elevation features an attached one-story, 20′ x 32′ shed roof dairy milking parlor addition. Both the silos and dairy milking parlor addition are not included in this project’s scope of work due to budget constraints.

The barn is individually listed as a Boulder County historic landmark for its contributions to the development of early 20th century agriculture, and named after its builder, Mathias Wencel. The barn served as the center piece of the Wencel’s farm operation and is significant as one of the last remaining large hay barns in the area. This project embodies Boulder County’s long-standing vision to preserve the rural character and cultural heritage of unincorporated Boulder County.
