Nakoosa Trail Fleet Fire Radio Shop Facility
MODERN UPDATED FACILITY WITH GREEN FEATURES
C. D. Smith Construction served as general contractor on the City of Madison Fleet/Fire/Radio Shop Facility. Four facilities were consolidated, representing the first facility update since 1954.
The new 110,000 SF facility provides light, medium and heavy vehicle service and repair in one location for the City of Madison’s fleet. Police, ambulances, fire apparatus, service automobiles, plow trucks, vans, garbage trucks, construction equipment and much more will utilize this high-tech, state-of-the-art garage, streamlining services and consolidating efforts and resources.
It was a goal to be future-forward on sustainable features as well as achieve LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Thoughtfully placed skylights and office windows along with dimming daylighting controls optimize natural light throughout the building. Foam insulation in the outside walls reduces heating and air-conditioning costs. LED lighting systems with motion sensors provide modern building efficiencies. Hot water piping in the floors was placed for efficient radiant building heat. Rooftop solar units provide hot water and building power. A sun wall incoming air tempering system was installed to preheat incoming cold air using less energy. Kaleidoscopic sun catchers amplify natural sunlight and convert it to energy to power the two charging stations in the yard that service City, employee and public vehicles.
