A robust expansion of the regional transit bus system in San Joaquin County led to need for a modern, efficient bus maintenance facility. San Joaquin RTD modeled their needs after an existing facility in Southern California, only to find that the full program would exceed their budget significantly. We teamed with McCarthy Construction to develop a right-sized facility through design innovations and value-engineering.
We consolidated facilities from three separate buildings into two, reducing site acreage by 40 percent. We redesigned vehicle flow to increase bus parking capacity by 30+ percent. The new maintenance facility will house all repair services for a fleet of 100 vehicles. The new buildings will also house staff and driver’s facilities and administrative support.
This facility won a CMAA Project Achievement Award in 2017.
