Operations & Maintenance Facility
When the City of Greensboro determined that their bus maintenance facility was obsolete and too small for current operations, Wendel was hired to design and plan a new facility for maintenance, operations and administration. The chosen site offered many challenges to the design team, who maximized the usable space despite the surrounding wetlands. To accommodate the sloping nature of the site, bus storage and service lanes are located underneath the second floor administration and operation areas, which is at ground level. The finished facility earned a LEED Silver certification and boasts a green roof along with an efficient, state-of-the-art garage that can service up to 140 full size buses and 50 paratransit vehicles.
