National Grid Maintenance Facility

 

After deciding to consolidate their fleet maintenance, materials depot, and transformer storage buildings into one, National Grid recruited RGB Architects and DiPrete Engineering to evaluate potential locations for a new facility. Once the site was determined, DiPrete Engineering assisted with the development of a 25,000 sf fleet maintenance facility. This included four drive-through truck bays, storage bays, wash bays, and an open-air truck canopy with loading docks to accommodate four full-size tractor-trailers. Connecting the two truck service areas is the office and employee support services. In addition to access roads, parking areas, utility services, and stormwater management, the site includes a transformer storage pad/containment area. This provides storage for approximately 16 mobile transformers and an additional 30 pad-mounted transformers.
