The new 122,000-square-foot facility will house all maintenance operations for the Rochester area, including the Rochester Truck Station, and become the maintenance support headquarters for Dodge, Fillmore, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Wabasha and Winona counties.
The additional space will provide a safer, more cost-effective work environment with larger maintenance bays for larger snowplows, increased operation efficiencies with adequately equipped shop areas and office spaces and more indoor storage for weather-sensitive equipment, which prolongs the life of the equipment.
The new building also will allow for enhanced response time for customers because all the equipment is ready and accessible. Design consists of steel bar joists and girders, precast panels and planks, light gage, CMU bearing walls, and spread footings
PAI performed engineering calculations and developed certified construction drawings. PAI also provided shop drawing review and engineering inspections during construction. We also provided rebar and weld inspections which included the grade beams, caissons, structural steel at the mezzanine and the roof and the weld inspections for the precast setting.
