Derby Public Works

About the Project

The City of Derby needed a new facility for the administration and equipment shop functions of the Public Works Department.

The WDM design includes:

  • A clerestory vaulted entrance
  • Employee training room with A/V
  • Multiple conference rooms
  • A “strengthened structure” storm shelter
  • Suspended mezzanines
  • Equipment wash bays
  • Clerestory natural lighting is featured in the shop area

The site also contains various utility structures for equipment and bulk materials storage. The admin/shop is comprised of site-cast tilt-up concrete panels with metal panel accents.
