The new public services facility provides operations, maintenance, vehicle repair, engineering, and construction services for West Des Moines’ public infrastructures. Prior to their second location, it was a challenge to meet the city’s growing needs from the current facility. The design for West Public Services Center follows FEH Design and Kueny Architects’ master plan for the 60-acre site, while allowing space for future services. Phase one of the site includes the public services building, vehicle fueling station, cold storage building, salt storage, brine mixing building, and a covered outdoor storage structure. The public services building houses administration and office spaces, in addition to a 23-bay vehicle facility containing maintenance and repair shop areas, wash bays, and 98 storage stalls.
