HRSD PPEA Project
Henderson, Inc. provided full design-build services to include, architectural and engineering services for the programming, design, and contract administration of a new 50,000 SF administration and vehicle dispatch/maintenance/storage facility for the Hampton Roads Sanitation District's (HRSD's) new North Shore Maintenance Center. This was a Design-Build project for HRSD under the Public Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act (PPEA). In addition to the design and construction, the project included demolition of an abandoned sewage treatment plant and composting facility.
The facility is comprised of three functional areas. The first area is a two-level administrative wing with a two-story glass atrium serving as the main entrance and focal point for the façade. The second area contains high vehicular maintenance bays, fabrication areas, parts storage, tool storage, and vehicle storage. The use of insulated translucent panels fills this area with diffused natural daylight. The third area contains functions that support the first two areas, i.e. dispatch, meeting/training facilities, toilets, lockers, showers and the lunchroom. A portion of the building was designed as an emergency "Hurricane Ride-Out" compound capable of sustaining Class II hurricane conditions.
The site was divided into two functional areas. One, readily accessible to the street, includes the main entrance to the building and provides public and employee parking. The second, secured by gated fencing, provides a fueling island, staging area, and an extensive outdoor storage and laydown area for the vast amount of materials and supplies that HRSD must maintain for quick repair and maintenance of the system.
The site, which is adjacent to the Newport News Airport, had to conform to FAA height and setback restrictions. The building is designed and constructed to mitigate the noise generated at the adjacent runways. The building is also designed to LEED® V 3.0 Silver standards.
The Henderson, Inc. design-build team included Guernsey Tingle Architects and Kimley Horn and Associates, Inc.
