Welcome to the Marin County Department of Public Works (DPW) Building Maintenance information page!
The County of Marin maintenance department is responsible for over 1,000,000 sq. ft. spread across approximately 52 properties which span from Sausalito, to the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore, to as far away as Tomales. While the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Civic Center Civic Center is its crown jewel, it is but a myriad of facilities maintained 24/7/365 by an eclectic and prideful team.
Engineers, electricians, carpenters, plumbers, painters and compliance specialists comprise a first rate staff which also includes our Shipping and Receiving Department and Custodial staff that are without peer. The group in its entirety works in unison with a conservancy that maintains and preserves Mr. Wright’s strong vision at the nationally recognized historical landmark Civic Center.
The department constantly embraces and implements cutting edge technologies, whether it is Leed certified green building practices, ADA compliancy, solar panel energy conservation, reclaimed water or safety related hazardous material training and compliance.
The complexity of maintaining the vast array of unique facilities such as the County Jail, Juvenile Hall, Airport, Libraries, Fire Departments, Health and Human Services buildings or Flood Control pump-stations, offer up stiff challenges on a daily basis.
As county workers our team is also trained in Disaster and Emergency response. To that end, and in an effort to foster and maintain continuity, the group works closely with other county agencies such as the Sheriff’s Department, County Fire, MERA (Marin Emergency Radio Authority), Flood control and the Roads division.
Our departmental strength is in its synergistic approach, in recognizing the whole really is greater than the sum of its parts.
We are available to help with any facilities problem and can be reached at (415) 473-6576 or by visiting Room #404 Civic Center Drive San Rafael Ca.
