A new public works facility is nearing completion for the City of St. Charles, Missouri. MDG began work with a comprehensive design team led by H Design Group back in 2013 to develop a space needs program for the City's five public works divisions. The goal was to create efficiency by consolidating the divisions on a new campus with shared amenities and direct affinities to increase overall productivity.
In addition to offices and administration space for each of the divisions, the new campus includes shop and storage areas for a streets division sign shop, street lights shop, a water distribution meter shop, and a valve and hydrant shop. It also has a fleet services building with heavy and light duty repair bays featuring in-ground lifts and an overhead bridge crane, a welding/fabrication shop, tire shop, parts storage, and other support areas.
A fueling facility, truck wash, covered granular material storage bunkers, and a salt storage building are also included on the site along with parking for 150 trucks and automobiles with some covered parking and an enclosed, heated vehicle storage building for specialty vehicles and equipment.
