The Saline Area Schools Operations Center is a Design/Build project to construct a new 26,000 SF facility on a seven-acre parcel near the existing school campus. The building will support the needs of the transportation, grounds, and building maintenance departments. It will include administrative offices and a place for bus drivers to land between routes. The project scope also includes a bus wash, a covered 40-bus parking lot, and outdoor grounds equipment storage.
The maintenance area will be a pre-engineered metal building (PEMB). This versatile space includes bus repair and maintenance, grounds equipment repair, maintenance, storage, building maintenance, lockers, and a lounge area for employees. Additionally, the large mezzanine optimizes space utilization and organization. The infrastructure also includes provision for future electric bus charging stations and solar panels.
The Saline Area Schools Operations Center is an exceptional project that seamlessly blends functionality, sustainability, and innovation, poised to serve the school district.
