Comprehensive Evaluation, Planning, Design & Construction for New Bourne DPW Facility

Weston & Sampson was selected to provide comprehensive evaluation, planning, design, and construction administration services for a new Public Works facility for the Town of Bourne, a medium-sized community of approximately 18,700 residents located on 40 square miles of land at the gateway to Cape Cod. The new facility was constructed to relocate the existing facility from the town-owned landfill to make room for the landfill expansion.

The Bourne Public Works Facility includes the construction of a new 40,000 square foot facility that will consolidate the public works operations into a single site. The facility includes offices, employee facilities, workshops, vehicle maintenance, wash bay, and vehicle and equipment storage. The project also includes the construction of a new fueling facility, salt storage structure, and bulk material storage area.

The facility was designed to incorporate many sustainable features, including:

  • Super-insulated factory fabricated wall panels
  • Simple Saver R-40 roof insulation
  • Occupancy sensors to control artificial lighting
  • Low water usage plumbing fixtures
  • Interior and exterior low-energy usage lighting (e.g., LED)
  • Day-lighting into shops and vehicle/equipment storage areas via translucent wall panels
  • Roof structure designed for future photovoltaic panel installation
  • Waste oil burner in vehicle/equipment storage areas
  • High-efficiency boilers
  • Heat-recovery equipment in heating/ventilation systems
