Palos Hills Public Works Facility
Henry Bros. Co. completed a new 39,000 square foot public works building for the City of Palos Hills. The partial two-story facility features indoor parking for 33 vehicles, three maintenance bays with two truck lifts, a truck wash bay, brine storage, a workshop, ample indoor storage for equipment and tools as well as administrative offices, and locker rooms with showers and restrooms for staff. The 7.5-acre site also includes outdoor parking, a vehicle fueling station, and material and salt storage. This facility and its staff provide service to more than 17,000 residents in Palos Hills.
The structure required an h-pile foundation with grade beams and a structural slab to reinforce substandard soil conditions.
