Helping to design a state-of-the-art facility that aligns perfectly with our goal to serve and design for communities
To accommodate Sound Transit and the City of Bellevue’s expanding light rail vehicle (LRV) fleet, this new facility will provide space to maintain, store, and deploy up to 96 LRV’s. The facility will also include a 14-bay vehicle maintenance shop and space to support 250 employees.
Our job? Leading the design and providing design management, LEED facilitation, electrical/mechanical engineering, and environmental permitting. Our design work included lighting, IT/communications, security, signals, SCADA, acoustics, and track integration.
The project is targeting LEED® Silver certification and will be constructed to achieve a variety of sustainable goals to reduce environmental impact and optimize performance. Sustainable features include 50% reduction of outdoor water use, 35% reduction of indoor water use, installation of a 50-kilowatt photovoltaic system, use of low-emitting materials to reduce concentrations of chemical compounds, and a planned diversion of 75% of construction and demolition waste from the landfill.
We’re optimizing the needs of the facility’s program while creating unencumbered, marketable development opportunities that will allow for a future transit-oriented development. The design also included capacity for future additional power requirements and storage and maintenance capacity to accommodate additional fleets.
