North Saint Paul Public Works Facility

Owner: City of North Saint Paul

Location: North Saint Paul, MN

Description: Construction of a 72,000 square foot facility that supports the city’s water & sewer department, street maintenance department, parks department and the electric utility department. The project was constructed on the site of the previous facility and includes a wind generator that serves the facility. In addition to the prominently visible wind generator, the project also used a number of green building techniques; vegetation was promoted to group on lattice work to naturally shade the wall surface, soft landscape around the buildings allows rainwater to re-fill natural aquifers.
