Fleet Maintenance Facility
The 42,000 square foot complex replaced a 40-year-old facility that was declared economically irreparable and failed to meet code requirements for alternative-power vehicles. The facility was designed and constructed to be environmentally friendly and features skylighting to reduce energy costs and a storm water run-off filtering system to eliminate any potential contamination of storm water. Fleet services uses environmentally-conscious re-refined and recycled products and provides maintenance to light fleet hybrid and low-emission vehicles and a heavy fleet consisting of liquefied natural gas and propane vehicles.
