Lexington Public Works Facility – Multi-Disciplinary Engineering Services

Weston & Sampson, in association with HKT Architects, Inc., was selected to program and design a new consolidated public works facility for the Town of Lexington Department of Public Works (DPW). The project includes DPW facility programming, design, bid assistance, and construction administration services for this new facility.

This project was designed to earn a Silver certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ for design and construction.

The facility includes the consolidation of all DPW operations on one site including DPW administration, engineering, operations, employee facilities, fleet maintenance, division workshops, central stores, interior vehicle and equipment storage, vehicle wash, vehicle fueling system, cold storage, and sand/salt storage. The facility will also house other town activities, including the school maintenance division and an emergency operations center.

Weston & Sampson provided programming assistance, alternatives analysis input, environmental sampling, subsurface investigation and recommendations, traffic engineering, industrial engineering, conceptual cost estimating, and technical review services for this 85,000 square foot, $30 million project.

Industrial engineering services include programming, design, and construction administration services for all specialty vehicle maintenance, fueling, and wash equipment. Equipment includes heavy duty vehicle lifts, light duty lifts, bridge cranes, fluid distribution systems, tailpipe exhaust removal systems, telescoping welding extraction systems, tire repair equipment, small shop equipment (drill presses, grinders, saws, etc.), and a fully automated gantry vehicle wash system with water reclamation components. This project also includes the design of a complete vehicle fueling system including underground storage tanks, fuel island canopy, dispensers, and a fuel management system. Our team met with the client during the early phases of the project to review equipment options in order to identify the appropriate equipment and systems for the client’s specific operations.
