Public Services Complex Construction

The Public Services Complex construction project is well underway. Construction began in early April 2023 with site preparation work on the administration site, which is located within the limits of the existing bulk item/brush yard collection yard. Construction has progressed to the point where the interior and exterior framing has been installed along with the roof trusses and metal decking. 

Concurrently, construction is ongoing for the new water distribution building and combined fleet/facilities/sanitation (building. The water distribution building is located on the water operations parcel adjacent to the Fresh Pond. The fleet/facilities/sanitation building parallels the south property line of the main Public Services site and is situated between the water tower and the old facilities maintenance building which has since been demolished to accommodate the new facilities. The picture above was taken on September 15, 2023, detailing the progress of the combined FFS building. 

Significant progress has been made on the water distribution building with the metal framing in place and the concrete block interior and exterior walls approximately 2/3 complete.

 Additional updates will be provided as construction progresses.
