Sandy Public Works

After Sandy City’s old Public Works facility was damaged by fire more than two years ago, a new facility is now complete. Working with city staff and administration, JRCA helped the city in preparing a facility space needs assessment addressing current requirements and allowance for projected growth. Additionally, we developed a facility master plan to replace the old public works building.

Within a few months of the Sandy Public Works fire, we made what was to be our most important and best decision. We selected the renowned architecture firm JRCA, led by Jim Child to help us rebuild. Jim gave us his best Architects, Scott Holmes, assisted by Jonathon Faull, to design a completely new facility, and what a job this team has done. From the 50-year design life to the clean lines, functionality, and room to change and grow, Sandy City now has a state of the art Public Works Administration Building. We are very happy.
