Environmental Ops Building Rendering - webEnvironmental Ops Building Aerial Rendering - webBuilding resilient communities includes attention to the physical infrastructure that enables Largo to function effectively and efficiently. On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, the City of Largo Environmental Services broke ground on a new operations building to support this and the Largo Strategic Plan focus on investing in quality public infrastructure and ensuring public health and safety.

The new 13,187 square foot wastewater treatment operations building has a construction cost of $8,022,671 and will take approximately 18-months to construct. It will be the City's first category five rated building to withstand hurricane winds, and will be elevated 23.5-feet above sea level to protect from storm surge.

Building with Sustainable Design

Largo Environmental Services worked alongside design and construction teams to ensure both resiliency and sustainability were, quite literally, built into the new building plans. In addition to a state-of-the-art lab and new offices, the building will feature a solar-ready roof and an electric vehicle (EV) charging station. 

Design and engineering plans and specifications for the new operations building were developed by McKim and Creed. Construction for this project is being provided by locally-based Biltmore Construction Company, Inc.
