Consolidating operations and administration for efficiency.

The City of Tukwila Public Works Department previously operated out of three disparate facilities, each small, outdated, and operationally inefficient. SHKS worked with the city to plan a new public works facility at a 13-acre site located along the Duwamish River. Developed prior to city ownership, the site includes several existing buildings strategically utilized in the master plan’s phased design option. Programmed through the year 2045, the two options are consistent with program requirements but distinguished in the utilization of existing buildings and site operations. Consolidating all public works operations as well as several administrative personnel, the program is grouped according to shared functions for efficiency of space and to avoid unnecessary duplication. Overall, the interior program combines office administration functions, employee resources, public works operations space, vehicle maintenance operations and parking. Implementation of the first phase is completed with the renovation of a former auto-body shop.
