Dealing with a floodplain

Work zones: Except for the main building and salt shed (4), the site is in a floodplain. Main work zone toward the rear provides flexible swing space. Northern and eastern edges remain clear so a river walk can be added later.

Screening: Building blocks the public’s view at the entrance while the garage shields the view from homes south of the site.

Circulation: (1) Visitor vehicles are separated from public works vehicles at entrance (2) Secure access enhances public safety and reduces vandalism (3) Vehicles exit storage garage in a counterclockwise manner (4) Counterclockwise movement through the work zone (5) Exit from maintenance provides direct access to the yard and counterclockwise movement to the exit.
