Napa Valley Transportation Authority breaks ground on new operations and maintenance facility

The Stantec-designed 31,500-square-foot facility allows for fleet expansion, electric buses

02/24/2022 NAPA, CA TSX,NYSE:STN

The Napa Valley Transportation Authority (NVTA) recently broke ground on a new bus operations and maintenance facility outside the City of Napa. Global design firm Stantec is working with NVTA and Kimley-Horn on the $30 million project that supports fleet expansion, including the future implementation of electric buses.

The 31,500-square-foot, three-building purpose-built facility will house NVTA’s operations and maintenance efforts. The new facility includes an operations building with space for 100-plus operators, a 6-bay maintenance building, and a vehicle wash building. It is designed to accommodate an expanded fleet of more than 80 transit vehicles, while also providing much-needed meeting and collaboration space.

The facility was designed for employee comfort, with an emphasis on optimization for daylight. Clerestory windows allow daylight to flow deep into the buildings, and natural ventilation was incorporated in the maintenance building to support employee health and well-being.

The architectural design of the facility allows the buildings to stand out as civic buildings that are part of the community. The sloped-roof design and sculpted forms for the buildings take cues from the surrounding hills and valleys while also optimizing the structures for roof top solar systems.

“It’s exciting to see construction start on this much-needed facility for the Napa Valley Transportation Authority,” said Will Todd, Stantec’s project architect. “Our vision is for a resilient and highly functional building designed to serve the client and community for decades. The built-in support for an expanding electric bus fleet is also critical as the NVTA continues to transition to a zero-emissions fleet.”

Construction is expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2023. Stantec provided programming, master planning, architecture and interior design on the project.
