MetroLINK, Rock Island County’s Metropolitan Mass Transit bus service, needed a larger, updated space. This $22 million, 150,000 SF facility houses all MetroLINK’s administrative and maintenance offices, training areas and fitness center. Diesel & CNG fueling, paint booths, vehicle lifts, a bus wash, vehicle lubrication system,
a methane gas detection system and cranes and lifts were some of the components of this project.
The goal of this project was to create a LEED Silver Certified facility featuring a PV Solar Array System, a Solar Thermal Hot Water System, a Water Reclamation System at the bus wash, bio-swales, native grasses, management of construction waste, and the use of recycled materials.
