St. Louis County Public Works Facility
Project Type: Maintenance Garage
Client: St. Louis County
LHB was selected by St. Louis County, who is the local government sponsor for a new county-owned, $23 million community and public works facility in Cook, Minnesota which will house operations for multiple public agencies. LHB’s Scope of work includes all architectural and engineering services for design and construction of the facility.
This project has two defined phases: 1) Predesign, including project cost estimation. 2) Schematic design, Design development, Construction Documents, and coordination with local jurisdictions. This project involved coordination with a construction-manager-at-risk starting in the design development stage.
The project is designed to include high performance and energy efficient building envelope and mechanical systems. The team targeted low maintenance and long life cycle design solutions with efficient space planning incorporating both new construction and potential remodeling of the existing facilities.
