The Public Works building is the County’s main vehicle maintenance, shops, equipment storage, public works administration and training facility. The main building is a combination of wood frame administrative offices and precast concrete shops including a large enclosed and heated wash bay. A heated storage building is adjacent across the parking lot. Building orientation and roof design take advantage of natural snow and ice melting, natural lighting and snow shedding. The site is a fully-mitigated former uranium mill tailings site that now functions as an industrial park.
