Project Scope

This project will provide new HVAC systems throughout the facility which will address zoning, pressurization and ventilation issues in the facility. Budget is $6.575 M.

Work includes phasing to allow for continuous owner occupancy and 24-hour operations. While the HVAC portion of this project is significant, other components such as electrical, steel and roofing are substantial. The improvement work includes, but is not limited to, selective demolition and reconnection of MEPFP in areas requiring inserted structural bar joist under roof top mechanical units, relocation of fuel and compressed air lines, replacement of air handling equipment, replacement of air distribution, installation of new hydronic unit heaters, installation of new hydronic piping, HVAC controls and associated electrical connections and roof patching. A significant portion of the work includes new structural bar joists, a new steel mezzanine and new electrical distribution for the HVAC and future electrical upgrades.

This is the second phase of a 4-phase construction project (totaling $30M+). Over the next 3 years the capital improvement plan for this facility is to design and bid a project each year in the $6-9M range:

  • 2019 Construction: Metro Transit Phase 1 Service Bay Addition was the addition of a new service lane addition, totaling ~$6.5M

  • 2020 Construction: Phase 2 is replacement of HVAC, totaling ~$6.5M  (This project will be advertising for bids starting January 9, 2020)
  • 2021 Construction: Phase 3A is remodeling of maintenance bays, including lift replacements, totaling ~$8.5M (design starting early 2020)
  • 2022 Construction: Phase 3B is remodeling of Admin/Dispatch areas, including new electrical service, totaling ~$8.0M (design starting early 2021)
  • 2023 and beyond – a potential Phase 5 (3C) and Phase 6 project to complete remodeling of bus storage areas and exterior improvements not currently in the 2020 Capital Budge.
