The exterior design of the facility utilizes a variety of durable, low-maintenance materials and colors to provide visual interest at an economical price. Exterior walls consist of economical concrete and glazed masonry block with a sloped wood truss roof. The interior includes durable materials such as concrete floors and vinyl composition tile, with energy-efficient lighting. Radiant heating, a trench drain system with oil separation, and an exhaust ventilation system.

Intended to resemble the prototype developed in Nebraska City, the exterior materials of the building are similar, utilizing durable, low maintenance masonry block construction, with metal siding and a standing seam metal roof in lieu of asphalt shingles.
Interior finishes include durable materials such as concrete floors and vinyl composition tile, and energy-efficient lighting. Radiant heating, a trench drain system with oil separation, and an exhaust ventilation system are also utilized. The overall appearance of the building achieves a distinctive design style at an economical price.
The first of three projects included a new sloped, wood truss roof in place of the membrane, flat roof on the existing portion of the building. Several roof problems were eliminated while resulting in a dramatic improvement to the aesthetics of the building.
