Bloom Companies was the primary Architect/Engineer for a new solid waste transfer facility complex for the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio. Bloom provided architecture, structural, and civil engineering services, along with the management of MEP consultants. This project included the design and construction of 3 new facilities on the current transfer station site including: a new state-of-the-art 29,700 sq. ft. solid waste transfer station, 18,400 sq. ft. vehicle maintenance facility, and a new 38,800 sq. ft. heated vehicle storage facility. The new facilities were designed and constructed on the current site of a solid waste shredding/transfer station and vehicle maintenance complex. The project required phased demolition of the existing facilities to allow continuous concurrent owner operations on the site while the new facilities were constructed. The site design efficiently integrates the SWACO transfer station operations and the City fleet vehicle operations. It incorporated joint use facilities for fueling and administrative support. The new fleet vehicle maintenance facility provides four maintenance bays, parts and supply storage, office, dispatch and administrative facilities. The new heated vehicle storage facility provides storage for 75 haul vehicles and brings the site in compliance with current EPA and Ohio EPA storm water discharge requirements. The project was planned for LEED Certification and all aspects of design and construction utilized sustainable design concepts.
