1. Description

    This new 24-acre facility functions as a service vehicle hub and provides a modern, colorful image for this essential public service. This project was divided into four quadrants: the Crew Quarters/Administration Building and adjacent personal car parking lot in the Southwest corner; the Vehicle Maintenance Building in the Northwest region; the Storage Yard, including a Storage Yard Building in the Southeast part; and the Service Islands, where the automatic carwash building, fueling island, and truck wash bays are located in the Northeast section.

    The site has been developed to provide a green landscaped buffer along W. Commerce Street, where the retention pond and fitness trail are located.

    This project was built as a LEED Silver eligible facility and incorporates above ground water-harvesting tanks that captures rainwater from the roofs and condensate from the air conditioning systems.
