This project for the Reading Public Works Department of the City of Reading consists of several buildings located on the site of a former railroad station. The 34,000 square foot headquarters building houses the administrative functions for the Public Works as well as the workspaces for the Traffic, Property Management, Parks, Sewers, and Streets Departments.
The complex also contains a nine-bay, 22,000 square foot garage building for the maintenance of the city’s fleet of vehicles. In addition, the project also provides a vehicle storage facility and a salt storage facility.
The buildings, surrounded by railroad tracks on three sides, were designed to echo the architecture of the former railroad building at this site. The project was completed in 2004.
