Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez along with City of Doral Council and the Department of Public Works marked the opening of the new Doral Public Works facility at a Nov. 1 ribbon- cutting ceremony.
The new two-story, building located at 6100 N.W. 99th Ave. was built to withstand a Category 5 hurricane.
The 35,000 square-foot structures includes six bays for fleet maintenance, a 5000 square-foot warehouse, unleaded gas and diesel storage and dispensing equipment, car wash facility, and hurricane impact windows among other features.
The new building is on target to receive a LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (U.S.G.B.C). The City will also use the facility as its Emergency Operations Center or E.O.C. during any type of emergency.
