Ayres Associates provided site and structural design for the new Polk County Highway Garage. The project included designing a new 60,000-square-foot highway garage and renovating an existing 45,000-square-foot metal building. The new garage includes vehicle parking, repair bays, parts storage, crew quarters, and administrative offices. Yard facilities include a salt and brine shed, truck scale, fueling station, security fencing, parking lot, and paved circulation areas. The project design was completed in only four weeks to allow for foundation construction before winter. Ayres Associates teamed with Barrientos Design on the project.
Ayres’ services included site design for grading, paving, utilities, stormwater, the salt shed, the truck scale, and the fueling station, as well as structural design of the new highway garage and renovations to an existing building.
