The Operation and Maintenance Building was designed at the public entrance to the plant with the intent of creating the “image” for the project. The 9,000 square foot building houses the plant administrative spaces, the plant control room, communications, a small laboratory, and equipment maintenance operations. The O&M Building is constructed of integral colored masonry units, metal roof structures, and translucent wall panel systems. The intent was to provide a facility constructed with low maintenance materials that could also be used throughout the plant.
