ARCHITECTURE & FACILITIES
Weston & Sampson maintains a staff of experienced architects who are committed to designing highly-functional, cost-efficient and safe workplace structures. Our architects can survey existing facilities to evaluate the purposefulness of a design and develop a plan for renovation or new construction that will yield the maximum value for your budget requirements.
Weston & Sampson’s staff is experienced in leading public and private sector site and building development projects, and we have the technical expertise to take a project from conceptual design to final construction. Our staff’s project experience includes public facilities, corporate office buildings, commercial and industrial subdivisions, recreational facilities, municipal housing, fleet operations facilities and municipal maintenance facilities.

The project includes a 39,000 square foot facility for DPW Administration, Highway, Vehicle Maintenance, and Buildings and Grounds. The facilities were designed with office space, employee facilities, trade shops, vehicle maintenance, vehicle wash, and vehicle and equipment storage areas. The facility also incorporates several sustainable design elements.
