Meeker County Public Works

Meeker County

Shared by both Meeker County and the State of Minnesota, the Public Works Facility provides much needed vehicle and mechanical repair space to support county and MnDOT needs. The design also lends itself to future expansion of both vehicles and staff. The facility boasts 24,000 SF for vehicle storage and maintenance (including warm vehicle storage), 4,000 SF of mechanics space with three bays, locker rooms, staff break room, mezzanine storage, parts supply, and sign shop. The modern industrial design of the facility with its warm precast wall panels and metal panels blends into the industrial/retail setting and sets the standard for future buildings in this area. Sustainable approaches incorporated in the design include:

  • Passive daylighting and heating
  • Shading devices
  • CO2 monitoring
  • Geothermal heating and cooling
