Twin Falls City Hall
The new Twin Falls City Hall is designed to coincide with a downtown revitalization for a community of around 50,000 residents. The 3-story, 50,000 SF building will accommodate the relocation and centralization of many city services and departments. Prior to the renovation, a majority of city services were dispersed among three different locations. In this adaptive reuse project, Utility Billing, Engineering, Planning and Zoning, Administrative offices, Human Resources, Finance, Information Systems and City Council Chambers will all be housed in the new downtown location.
Hummel performed an existing building analysis and determined that the only value in the former furniture building was its structure. The building was then stripped of its finishes, systems, and hazardous materials. Efficient use of daylighting, energy-efficient mechanical systems, as well as LED lighting were all implemented into the facility’s design. The City of Twin Falls is pursuing LEED Certification. The architectural characteristics of the existing downtown structures influenced the materials selected for the new City Hall.
