Wellington Municipal Complex

LEED CertifiedWellington's growth over its first 20 years as a community resulted in a need to consolidate their administrative, operations, building department/permitting, finance, payment services, IT and commissioner/public meetings spaces into a state-of-the-art facility. The facility's centralization of departments significantly increased worker performance as commuting between the multiple facilities throughout Wellington was eliminated, resulting in lower cost to the overall operating and maintenance budgets. Residents of Wellington also benefited from centralization of departments, as well as availability to attend public meetings with a Council Chamber designed for more than 5 times the occupancy of the previous facility.
