Project Info

The design is for a new 25,465 SF two-story facility.  The exterior of this building will use a combination of split-face block (to look like limestone), prefinished Hardie panels, Hardie trim, and metal standing-seam roofing.  All materials are very durable and long-lasting.  The use of split-face block is intended to mimic the limestone of City Hall.  Likewise, blue-tinted windows will mimic the windows used at City Hall.

The interior of this building will include ample office space for all the Public Works departments, which are


located in relationship to one another to maximize good communication and flow in the facility.  Also included are locker rooms, a kitchen, conference rooms, storage, a Police Substation with a garage, and a Fire Department training room.

This building has been designed to provide plenty of space for the current and future needs of Harrisonburg City Public Works.

We are pleased to be continuing to provide design solutions for the City of Harrisonburg.
