Hillsborough County Maintenance Facility
June 12, 2022
Hurricane Season is here! Hillsborough County recently hired us to Master Plan and design a prototype hurricane-hardened Maintenance Facility for 4 separate sites that would house the County Public Works, Water Resources, and Fleet Maintenance Departments. The main elements are a hardened 41,000 SF Core Building that contains a mix of office and warehouse, a 13,000 SF Fleet Building with six service bays, a fueling station for County vehicles, and various out-buildings for operational storage; all connected to a backup emergency generator. Each site will allow the County to continue operating through a hurricane and provide critical infrastructure and utility support immediately following a major storm event. Two of these County Hardened Maintenance Facilities have already finished construction and two more are in the final stages of construction. Be prepared and be safe!
