While the winter weather runs its course outside, the new Transportation Facility — now weather tight with overhead doors — is making significant progress inside:
Inside the building, all drywall installation is complete on both levels, and painting is underway. One of the two stair towers has been installed; the second stair tower will go in later this month, with the elevator assembly to follow. On the lower level, the heating plant, air recovery system and gas lines have been installed in the mechanical room, and the bus wash equipment is on track for installation later this month. On the upper level, the bus drivers’ room is nearing completion, bathrooms are being tiled, and soffits are being constructed in preparation for lockers. Throughout the building’s interior, the sprinkler and mechanical systems are being installed, and electrical, plumbing, and finish work continues.
Outside the building, roof panel installation is complete, with soffit and fascia detailing now underway. On the east and west sides of the building, the remaining exterior wall panels are going up, along with masonry sills. Exterior site work is on pause for now and will begin again in late spring as the new building nears completion.
