HIGH-TECH FACILITY FOR TRANSPORTATION MAINTENANCE
This advanced transportation facility places the district’s transportation offices and maintenance operations under one roof, allowing sharing of resources and personnel. The two areas are separated by various program spaces and a large floor-to-ceiling cinderblock firewall. This project was completed in two phases. Phase 1 was the transportation facility; phase 2 was much of the site work, including the fueling station and paving.
The design promotes a clean and safe work environment. Since the utilities are under the concrete, all electrical components come up through the floor, giving the facility a neat appearance. Each technician’s bay has a work station, wireless lift, and remote-controlled garage door. A 10-foot center aisle enables equipment transport and provides flexibility for future modifications if needed, and a 10-foot roof overhang shelters technicians as they perform light maintenance outdoors. An exhaust system allows engines to run while the doors are closed in the winter. Technology is seamlessly incorporated, with Wi-Fi and networking ports installed throughout the building. The command center has three large flat screens with television and computer connections, plus generator backup. The facility was featured in a national magazine, School Transportation News.
