The Facilities Management Department is replacing the existing landscape shed, which is too
small and in subpar condition. A space assessment indicated a dramatic need
for more square footage overall and, in particular, better word shop space.
Performed in a design build format, the project includes design of the
building and pad in conjunction with the University, then fabrication and installation
of a steel structure of approximately 10,000 gsf, including a 2nd level or loft space
as needed to accommodate program needs.
The building will be located at the west end of the FM yard, adjacent to the FM/SEAS building.
In preparation for the project,. a salt shed and storage warehouse was removed from the project site.
The building will contain offices, meeting and lounge areas, workshops including a
welding shop, engine repair areas, storage areas for tools and spare parts,
restrooms and locker areas. The exterior will be insulated metal wall
panels; the window frames, garage doors and roof will all be metal.
the foundation will consist of concrete slab on grade with spread footings.
