Shakopee Public Utilities
The 69,000 sf building includes administration offices, operations and shops, warehouse, vehicle garage and maintenance. The structural bay was designed for logical growth and adaptability of space as expansion occurs. The fixed elements of the facility, such as plant services, utility entrances and loading dock were positioned for both immediate use and the long-term expansion plan. As a facility providing services to customers during emergency situations, the core operations were clustered within a secure Emergency Operation Center designed to withstand severe weather conditions and remain structurally and functionally intact.
