This LEED-Silver rated building provides storage and maintenance space for three locomotives owned and operated by Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The 5,800 SF building features two tracks, a maintenance pit and small administrative area. The facility provides an overhead bridge crane, a maintenance fluid distribution and collection system, air compressor, and work benches.
Sustainable features include recycled material content of over 30% in the building materials, annual energy-use reduction of 18% through a well-insulated envelope, translucent insulated panels for natural lighting and efficient mechanical system design and equipment selection, and annual water savings of 30% through low flow plumbing fixtures. The overall design of the facility promotes an improved environment for workers with low-VOC emitting interior products and controls for lighting, ventilation and heating of individual work areas.
