MCE provided structural design for a new 30,000 square foot concrete tilt-up and structural steel bus maintenance facility. The facility includes a multiple-bay garage for servicing the district’s fleet of school buses, administrative offices, a driver’s lounge and dispatch area, and maintenance shop.
The architectural design called for concrete tilt-up walls, structural steel framing, light-gage steel framing, and masonry walls throughout the structure. Tying these different building materials together required custom detailing, with ease of constructability in mind.
- Two large shop areas with 20 ft ceilings for bus and vehicle maintenance
- Slab-on-grade foundation with thickened footings below bearing walls and isolated footings below steel columns
Long open spans at storefront framing allow for ample light at entryway and offices
