Waterbury Bus Storage and Maintenance Facility
AI is providing construction management and inspection services for the construction of the new 376,000-sf Waterbury Bus Maintenance Facility. The facility meets CT High Performance Building regulations and is being constructed on a former drive-in theater site located on the banks of the Naugatuck River. The project involves limited remediation of the site as well as raising the elevation of the site.
The new multi-level facility has lower level covered employee parking, a main level that will provide inside storage and maintenance for approximately 100 to 150 buses and transit vehicles of various types, and a second level that will provide offices and work areas for the administrative staff. The project consisted of many different construction elements including concrete footings, columns foundation walls, and retaining walls; slab on grade/slab on deck construction; two-way post-tensioned slab with trench drains and topping slab; the use of low density foam concrete; high bay steel truss construction; concrete sidewalks and curb; new HMA pavement; an infiltration basin; and site plantings.
The scope also includes a vast array of interior/building work, which includes high- efficiency LED lighting, custom HVAC systems, fire suppression systems, a two-lane bus wash, a chassis wash, vehicle service bays, five rotary bus lifts, a paint booth and tire shop, terrazzo flooring, storefront and aluminum curtain wall windows, and horizontal and vertical metal wall panels.
The project also included new water and sewer connections extended to the existing services on Frost Bridge and Echo Lake Roads, approximately 1½ miles from the facility. The existing conditions require above and below grade rock removals along the route. Traffic controls and alternating traffic is required. Road surface replacement is required once the installation is complete. This work includes approximately 6,300 lf of 12-in.-diameter water line and 7,100 lf of 6-in.-diameter sanitary sewer force main as well as, as needed, excavation, installation, backfilling, jacking, boring, chlorination, pressure testing and disinfection, and placing into service the waterline/sewerline and related appurtenances.
