The geometry of the processing plant area also illustrates the economy of design of many of the facilities, which were constructed with form very much supporting function, in many cases using the gravity of multi-stories and the hillside itself to minimize the power required to move the intermediate stages of the briquette products around. The heights now mainly provide a vantage point for the occasional pigeon or raven.
