Department of Transportation - Public Works
Reclamation Project - Fabric Covered Buildings
The King County Coordinated Reduction of
Waste (CROW) program is a comprehensive construction waste
recycling facility. Road waste such as asphalt,
cement, glass, brush, and street sweepings are collected and
recycled with the goal of re-use.
This practice diverts debris from landfills
and helps to preserve the environment. The four fabric
covered, steel truss buildings that are in use help the CROW
Program redirect storm water run-off from debris piles and
protects surface and groundwater from pollutants that would
otherwise enter the system.
Milestones Building & Design helped King
County develop a creative fabric building application that
would let the CROW program function easily and efficiently.
The natural light inside the fabric structures reduces the
need for added lighting and provides equipment operators
enough light to view the areas they are trying to work in.
