Due to significant increase in use, Hennepin County needed to evaluate and expand recycling facilities in Bloomington and Brooklyn Park. TKDA worked with County to plan, design and deliver the necessary expansion for these facilities to meet the needs of growing populations.
At the Bloomington Recycling Center TKDA conducted planning, design, permitting and construction administration for a 5,000 SF expansion that addressed future storage needs. The expansion included the addition of a truck dock and a new area to improve the bulking and packing of materials collected by the county. TKDA evaluated the Brooklyn Park Transfer Station facility’s operation and developed recommendations to meet the needs of varied operations within the county’s budget. TKDA implemented the design and construction of the expansion, including re-roofing and improvements to the facility air handling system and traffic flow.
