Redesign plan for central vehicle maintenance facility

Supervisors liked a design concept plan for a future central vehicle maintenance facility on the east side of US 301 (James Madison Parkway), about a half-mile south of the intersection with Route 3 (Kings Hwy).


The plan is for use of the building by the county and School Board for vehicle maintenance and storage.
 
The presentation was provided on Dec. 4 by Corey Clayborne and Adam McPherson from the engineering and design firm of Wiley/Wilson.

It included background information on the project, a master site plan and building schematic design, along with a preliminary project budget.

The site containing 48.24 acres was approved for purchase by the board two years ago, in December 2010 for $1,250,000. The site contains several parcels with an access road.  

About half of the site is cleared and contains three existing structures.

The largest is a 130-foot x70-foot metal building, which is in good condition though in need of roof work and other repairs. The building has four 14-foot high bays and has been used in the past as a vehicle maintenance facility.

The recommendation from Wiley/Wilson included a schematic design for the metal building that would strip out some of the existing walls and add some other interior partitions to create more useable spaces for the county’s purposes. It would also provide construction of a new building envelope.

The next task of the design contract is to provide construction plans to renovate the metal building and update the bays. The building has a mezzanine, largely used for storage that will also undergo some renovation.

Improvements are needed for the parking areas and to the entrance to accommodate buses. Better site lighting and security fencing is also needed. The property also contains a guard shack and two former residential structures, which are recommended for demolition.  

The site master plan provides for a future expansion of the metal building, and a potential for a future wash bay and future fueling depot.

Estimated construction costs come to $925,106. That would include $550,322 for roof and wall envelope replacement, along with interior support space and maintenance bay renovations.

It would also include an estimated $220,600 for fencing, lighting, well and septic, demolition and removal of a couple of small existing buildings and pavement repair. An additional $154,184 is estimated for contractor costs.

Additional costs estimated at $71,000 would include furnishings, equipment, and an exterior tire storage facility. Adding in testing, fees and contingency would bring it to an estimated total of $1,289,217.

The next step is for construction documents to be finalized, with the project anticipated to go to bid in Spring 2013.
