The City of Des Moines put together a plan to construct a new municipal service center to consolidate and house all of its services and operations on a +/- 40 acre site. Working in collaboration with Kueny Architects, Neumann Monson Architects, Snyder Associates and the City of Des Moines, Genus prepared a master plan, with strategies for phasing and developing the proposed facility and adjacent land area. Phase one of the Master Plan construction was completed in the Fall of 2014. Phase one improvements included a new building to house its services, a parking lot with a combination of permeable paving and bioretention swales in the parking islands. A larger detention basin is on the site as well as a large gathering space with an IPE deck.
