Weston & Sampson prepared a feasibility study, site selection analysis, final design, and bid documents for a new public works facility with sustainably designed mechanical/electrical/plumbing.
Work included preparing a space needs assessment for the DPW operations and conducting a comprehensive site selection analysis to identify a preferred site for a new Public Works facility. Based on the results of the study and site selection analysis, the town selected and purchased a preferred site to support the new facility.
Weston & Sampson assisted the town with obtaining approval from the town to fund the new facility. Based on the approval from the town meeting, Weston & Sampson prepared final design and bid documents for the new facility. The facility includes office / office support space, employee facilities (locker/shower/toilet/break and training), trade shops, vehicle maintenance, vehicle wash, and vehicle and equipment storage areas. The project also included ancillary support structures including a new salt shed, town-wide fueling facility, and bulk material storage area.
The facility MEP systems included sustainable design elements including natural daylighting, heat recovery ventilation, high-efficiency condensing boilers, radiant floor heating, occupancy sensor HVAC control, smart lighting controls, and a solar-ready roof.
