Blowing Rock Opens Revamped Public Works Facility
McGill Associates recently assisted with the Town of Blowing Rock’s new Public Works Building. The facility includes a 5,000-square-foot addition to the old building, featuring three entrance bays in the front and three in the rear, office and storage space, and a vehicle washing area, among other amenities.
The Town of Blowing Rock celebrated the completion of its new Public Works Building with a ribbon cutting ceremony on June 6, only a year after construction began.
“This new building is part of a celebration of change for Blowing Rock,” said Town Manager Scott Fogleman in a recent interview with the Watauga Democrat. “It is dedicated to the people who work here and the important work that they do.”
The $1.7 million facility will be used to store and maintain the Town’s fleet of cars, pickup trucks, snowplows and garbage trucks, as well as supply salt for removing ice and snow from city streets.
McGill Associates served as the project engineer, providing site design for the maintenance building addition and the new storage building. The firm also provided construction phase services, water and sewer line relocation, curbing, paving, fencing, and landscaping.
