Transit Operations Center

Location: Montgomery County, MD

Michael Baker provided architecture and engineering design and public involvement for a new, 481,400 square foot equipment maintenance and transit operations center for the county’s Transit, Fleet, and Highway Departments. The project consists of two complexes on adjoining sites; the 339,800 square foot Transit and Fleet Services complex, which accommodates maintenance and operations facilities for 300 buses, 3,000 heavy vehicles, and 600 employees; and the 141,600 square foot Highway Services complex, which includes offices, a bunk room, kitchen facilities, a warehouse, salt barns, and parking for round-the-clock emergency operations. The center was designed for a LEED® Silver rating, although LEED® Gold is anticipated to be achieved.
