Pine County Public Works
The 30,000 sf addition was designed to provide a new image for the public works department. The existing steel building was neither “user friendly” nor welcoming for the public. The addition developed an open entry area, positing a large public conference room at the exterior. Cladding the conference room with “store front” glass provided an open public image, while the remaining office space behind was developed and an open space area with high ceilings and significant natural light to enhance the work environment and reduce dependency on artificial light.
