The Grand Avenue Bus Facility

The Grand Avenue Bus Depot and Maintenance Facility is the first "green" bus facility of its kind. It adheres to Environmental Management Systems ISO14001 specifications and includes state-of-the art designs, systems, and materials. The facility was designed to maximize energy efficiency, conserve materials and resources, and reduce ozone depletion for pollution prevention, among other sustainable features. The 500,000 SF facility houses storage, fueling, washing, painting, and mechanical operations, accommodating indoor storage for approximately 200 buses and simultaneous repairs for 27. The project also includes administrative offices and employee amenities, including a roof-top employee parking lot which ensures minimal impact on the neighborhood. The project won the New York Construction Magazine Top Project Award.
