Design

    This production shop consolidates currently-scattered facilities onto one site. Located adjacent to existing MassDOT facilities, the site design accommodates pre-existing traffic flows and large vehicles. The structure’s open floor plan allows flexible arrangements of shop equipment as well as forklift access to high storage racks. Scoop skylights provide full-spectrum daylighting and minimize energy costs. The exterior features a metal rainscreen in terracotta color to match the existing MassDOT facilities on site. This project is designed to achieve LEED Silver certification.
