Lake County Forest Preserve Maintenance, Operations and Public Safety Complex. Wauconda, Illinois.
The Lake County Forest Preserve Maintenance, Operations and Public Safety Complex was located in a forest preserve in an old dairy. The new complex provides all necessary spaces for future growth requirements.
WRA was the Maintenance and Operations Planner for the design team providing conceptual and functional planning as well as equipment selection. The new facility consolidates all operations in a single facility configured to maximize efficiency of all departments. The facility includes two story administration and public safety spaces, shops, warehousing, fleet maintenance and heated vehicle storage. All shops and warehousing are directly accessible from the vehicle storage area thereby minimizing time lost to movement of vehicles and materials. The site is configured for efficient flow of vehicles, materials and personnel.
