St. Louis County Public Works Facility
Project Type: Maintenance Garage
Client: St. Louis County
St. Louis County selected LHB to design their new county-owned, $23 million community and public works facility in Cook, Minnesota. This facility houses operations for multiple public agencies. LHB’s scope of work included all architectural and engineering services for design and construction of the facility.
This project had two defined phases: 1) Predesign, including project cost estimation and 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 was 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 new construction and remodeling of an existing office space retrofitted into public health, social services, private office and meeting space for St. Louis County.
