Mason County PUD Johns Prairie Operations Center


Johns Prairie Operations Center is a newly constructed campus on a green field site with a unique blend of public and industrial spaces. This five-building campus totals over 150,000 square feet and houses warehouse, fleet maintenance, storage, shops and a fuel/wash space—all integrated with a unique operations center and public access. PCS’s deep experience in highly efficient pre-manufactured structural systems, creative public architecture, and industrial equipment support coordination was a great fit for this project. PCS introduced a cantilevered lateral system allowing exposed concrete and continuous windows that welcome the community into the public gathering space. Exposed structure was coordinated throughout, including heavy timber, steel, concrete, and a dynamic public stair and atrium.
