At 111,600 square feet, the size of the new Elmhurst Public Works Facility is designed to have all divisions in one central location. 77,000 square feet of the building is a covered parking area for 130 vehicles. Offices, shops, and storage areas wrap around the parking area, which is maintained at a 50 degree temperature. The facility is in a mixed-use neighborhood with single family residences, a school, and businesses. Therefore, the wrapping of the high mass with the lower masses brought the building down in scale and made it less intimidating than a typical building of this size.
