RNL, along with partners Maintenance Design Group and Jorgensen Associates, LLC was retained by the Town of Jackson, Wyoming to design a new bus operations and maintenance facility for Southern Teton Area Rapid Transit (START).
The new facility will provide administrative offices, interior bus storage for the fleet of 36 fixed route buses, a nine-bay fleet maintenance facility, in-line fueling and drive-thru bus wash at the entry to the bus storage area, and seven units of employee housing. The facility is sited on the edge of beautiful Karns Meadow, home to native wildlife, which provides both an impressive setting and opportunities for integrating sustainable site design.
The project is designed to meet a LEED Silver level of sustainability. Sustainable strategies include extensive use of natural daylighting, green roof, energy-efficient building envelope and radiant floor heating.
