Public Works Department Great Lakes provides facilities engineering and support services to the naval station commanding officer and all tenants on base. This includes planning, construction, contracting, maintenance and repair of the base’s buildings and streets, janitorial, grounds maintenance and snow removal services, and stewardship of the base’s natural and cultural resources. The PWD produces essential utilities including steam, water and electricity for the base. One of PWD Great Lakes’ most visible recent efforts is the 12-year, $770-million renovation of Recruit Training Command, completed in 2010. This complete overhaul of Navy boot camp facilities is saving energy and has improved Sailors’ basic training.
