The project is the design-build of a new 72,115 sf bus storage and service facility in Hamilton to provide indoor storage for 40 GO Transit double-decker buses with provisions for a future expansion.
The facility includes a quick service lane consisting of an automated hybrid bus wash and an indoor fueling service bay, an inspection pit bay with pit jack, a flat service bay, and associated storage and support spaces. The administration portion of the facility consists of a bus dispatch centre, safety and training office, meeting room, drivers’ lounge, lunch room, fitness room, and wash room / change rooms with a locker area. The site accommodates exterior bus circulation, outdoor employee and service vehicle parking, a salt storage enclosure and a radio tower within an enclosed compound.
