This project consisted of the design of a new facility for the City of West Melbourne to house the following departments:
The existing Public Works/Water Building was constructed in the mid-seventies and the entire project was demolished. The purpose of this project was to design and construct a new building (or buildings) that provide for typical public work areas. Those areas included:
The building(s) also included storage for janitorial supplies, office supplies, supplies such as bagged concrete mix, and water system supplies; including meters, meter boxes, hydrants, and the like.
The vehicle maintenance area in the building consists of 2 open, drive-through bays and 2 lift bays, one of which includes a pit and each with sufficient depth to hold 2 trucks.
GLE designed the entire electrical system for both buildings, this included coordinating with the client for on-site power for the main power to each building, coordinating with the civil engineer for site lighting, coordinating with the mechanical engineer for the hvac systems in each building. Produced photometric calculations and drawings, calculated the voltage drop and load on each panelboard, including fault current for each panelboard.
This project consisted of construction of a new vehicle maintenance and storage building, while the existing maintenance building was kept functional until the new building was completed. Once the new building was occupied, the existing maintenance building was demolished entirely and a new office building was erected at the same location.
Air Conditioning system for the single story 2,200 SF office building consists of one, 10-ton split direct expansion (DX) air conditioning unit and air handler with electric heat. Air distribution is through a constant volume ductwork with microprocessor based temperature controls.
The design included all the sanitary plumbing fixtures, lavatories and domestic water systems for hot and cold water and electric water coolers.
The vehicle maintenance building has maintenance bays and a maintenance pit for the City’s vehicle fleet. It has storage rooms for the treatment plant and other departments of the Public Works function. The building is heated and ventilated. A single office is conditioned in this building.
The new maintenance building has compressed air service drops to the bays as well as water service. An oil interceptor was provided for the drainage from the bays to contain the flow and separate the oils from the drain water to discharge into the sanitary sewer system.
