Environmental assessments of the existing Woodstock DPW facility triggered the full rehabilitation of the site and structures. The design team executed a full feasibility study for the re-planning and configuration of the 8-acre site; 5,000-SF of additions and 3,000-SF of renovations to the existing structure; the provision of new salt & sand storage facilities; the relocation and lighting of the town-wide fueling station; and upgrades to the site infrastructure, circulation, lighting, and security.

The building designs include a new animal control facility; new handicap accessible office, meeting and locker rooms, and break area; and new drive through vehicle maintenance and wash bays. All of the new bays are sized to accommodate trucks with plows and sanders and will include radiant slab heating.

The site development included a new well and a new septic system and is highlighted by a subsurface pavement liner and storm water treatment system, protecting the earth and groundwater below from potential contamination.

A unique feature of this project is the ongoing debate between use of “all salt” versus “sand and salt” and the corresponding impact to the facility.
