Williams County Highway Complex

Williston, North Dakota

The Williams County Highway Complex is an 80,000 SF facility being built for the collaboration of multiple departments for Williams County. The project allows the Highway Department, Weed Control, and Vector control to all be in one cohesive building and site with the ability to share common spaces. This complex consists of office space, a training room and large meeting hall, conference rooms, crew rooms, lockers, labs, storage space and large shop and maintenance space for these departments.

The building is organized with a primary south orientation to maximize views, solar heat gain in the winter, and comfortable entrances. The facility is organized with a central ‘hub’ with a majority of offices and meeting spaces and the shop bays branch off of the main core. The design aesthetics focused on the longevity of materials, combining the industrial nature of the shops with an agricultural yet modern appeal that fit with the context and history of the site.
