Mission
The mission of the Buildings Division is to manage, maintain, repair, and provide an environment in the City’s buildings that will enhance productivity and morale for the City’s employees and Lewiston residents who utilize the buildings. The division currently maintains 18 municipal buildings, with 1 million square feet of occupied building space and accompanying grounds. The City buildings include City Hall, Violations Bureau, Library, Police Department, Solid Waste Facility, five parking garages, Public Works Complex, and the Public Works Operations Center.

Tasks Performed

The division performs all planning, programming, design, and construction of capital-funded building projects ensuring that these projects are completed on time and within budget. Also, all construction and improvements are built to last, are architecturally appropriate, and are designed to support the City department's mission, as well as accommodate the building occupants' needs, activities, and goals. In addition to the existing 18 buildings, we also develop capital improvement projects involving the city's Fire and Recreation Departments.
