Facility Consolidation Project

At the September 18th meeting of the Board of Commissioners, General Manager Larry Dunbar presented the PUD’s proposed $4 million facility consolidation construction plan for 2019. The plan calls for the remodel and expansion of the 310 Four Corners Road operations and customer service center to be able to house all PUD employees, who are currently spread between multiple buildings across the county. Construction is proposed to begin in spring of 2019, and finish in 2020. TCF Architects designed the project. They also designed the Jefferson Transit Center. The plan is part of the 2019 budget which will be presented to the board on Oct. 1st in a Public Budget Hearing.

 

Challenges with Current Facilities

Hadlock Admin Building. To be sold fall 2018
Hadlock Annex Office. 10 employees. Billing and Finance dept.
Main Operations and Customer Service building. 40 years old. 35 employees.

Lack of Space, Crowded

  • Insufficient number of workspaces for current employees
  • Four Corners Facility Over Capacity
  • Hadlock Admin Facility up for sale
  • Hadlock Annex at Capacity
  • Water Treatment Plant is not designed for employee offices
  • Impacts recruitment and retention

Inefficient & Out of Date

  • Employees spread between multiple sites across county
  • Employees being moved frequently
  • 4 Corners Facility was at the end of its normal lifespan when PUD took over in 2013
  • Lacks a number of safety and security features
  • Crowded, poorly designed customer service center
  • Admin facility was falling apart, and was not worth the cost of repairing

Facility Consolidation Project Goals

House all Employees on One Campus

Update and Improve Existing Four Corners Campus

Add Onsite Meting and Conference Rooms
