This new, state-of-the-art pre-engineered metal building will house both the City's Public Works (PW) and Parks & Recreation (PR) departments. Creating efficiencies, protecting assets and safeguarding staff were three of the drivers behind the City's decision to build a new public works complex. The existing facility was located in a flood zone and experiencing more frequent water intrusions, making relocation a necessity. The new campus includes the PW/PR main building, a cold storage facility, salt and sand storage building and an indoor and outdoor apparatus wash stations.
Inside, the main building includes:
Bays for up to 30 large apparatus and multiple smaller equipment
Park & Rec portion includes small equipment storage, office space and a maintenance bay
ADCI and the client toured several newer public works facilities to see and hear firsthand the features that offered the best return on investment and improved operational efficiencies and worker safety. Some of the unique features resulting from that effort include an on-site brine mixing facility, rail and jib cranes to handle large equipment more safely, high-performance wash bay that will extend the life of equipment by up to double, infloor heating for optimum energy efficiency and translucent daylight panels throughout the building for increased natural lighting. Additionally, the City is exploring the long-term energy savings potential of adding solar power generation using rooftop and site-mounted solar tracking systems.
