Delaware Engineering provided planning, permitting, funding assistance, and construction inspection services to the Town of Windham for a new 10,000 SF highway garage. The facility replaced an undersized and aging 5,500 SF garage on the same site. Project scheduling was critical to ongoing operations as the old structure had to be demolished prior to construction of the new garage. The project was bid in May of 2014 and the new garage was substantially complete for its intended use by November 30, 2014.
The new garage provides six deep bays for truck storage and repair with an additional 20 feet of working area the full length of the building. Administrative areas include office space, breakroom/conference/kitchenette, bathrooms, work areas and parts storage. All areas are fully insulated with three separate zones of radiant floor heat. The building is designed as a Type IV Essential Structure for Emergency Operations.
