Champaign County Fleet Maintenance

Champaign, IL

The facility is designed to house the County’s Engineering Department and Highway Department under one structure. It interconnects four major functions: the Engineering Department’s offices and public meeting room, the Highway Department’s crew areas - including locker rooms and a break room, the Highway Department’s enclosed vehicle storage, and a vehicle maintenance area to serve the County’s fleet. As part of the design considerations, the County had a desire to encompass green concepts by integrating energy efficiency, durability, and light into the design of the facility. This was achieved in many aspects through the use of insulated precast wall panels, a geothermal heating and cooling system, heated floor system in the vehicle storage and maintenance bays, and large punched openings occurring in the precast that contain windows in order to provide as much natural light as possible throughout the day in all areas of the building.
