$6M Public Works Facility Built for ‘Green’ Standards

New Public Works building opened on NW 99 Avenue.

Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez along with City of Doral Council and the Department of Public Works marked the opening of the new Doral Public Works facility at a Nov. 1 ribbon- cutting ceremony.

The new two-story, building located at 6100 N.W. 99th Ave. was built to withstand a Category 5 hurricane.

The 35,000 square-foot structures includes six bays for fleet maintenance, a 5000 square-foot warehouse, unleaded gas and diesel storage and dispensing equipment, car wash facility, and hurricane impact windows among other features.

The new building is on target to receive a LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (U.S.G.B.C). The City will also use the facility as its Emergency Operations Center or E.O.C. during any type of emergency.
