This building is the largest integrated municipal fleet operation in Canada, maintaining over 4,500 vehicles. This facility was operational during construction, and required in-depth coordination and organization from the entire project team. This project involved extensive and challenging renovations to an existing 106,000 sq. ft. building, converting it from a steel fabrication shop to a bus and fleet bodywork facility with the focus on environmental efficiency. The work comprised of structural modifications, facade modifications, and concrete trench drain installation. Also included in the project was installation of significant specialized equipment such as in-slab hoists, spray booths, hose reels, air supply and pull pots. Using a design assist approach, we worked with the design team and manufacturers to ensure that all of the systems in the facility integrated properly. From hoist cassettes to oil recycling systems our approach ensured success. The original budget for this project was prepared by one of our competitors for the same scope of work. We worked with our client to reduce the budget by nearly $3 million so that the project was feasible and provided value to the taxpayers.
