Belfast Public Works Facility


Ledgewood was hired by the City of Belfast to construct the new Public Works Facility using the Design/Build delivery method. The $6M project includes construction of the new Public Works complex on a 33-acre piece of land, to replace the department’s aging Congress Street garage. The centerpiece of the new facility will be a single story, steel framed 27,000 s.f. garage to store all of the trucks and equipment.

The building will include heated and cold storage space, truck washing area, lift/ bay for serving trucks as well as lavatory and shower facilities for employees.

A separate 10,500 s.f. Sand/Salt Shed was also constructed.

The project included 4 acres of solar panels installed by ReVision Energy. With 2,500 panels, and 660 kilowatts it is the largest of three solar farms owned by the City. The purpose of these panels is to offset electric costs for Belfast’s municipal buildings.
