Transit Operations Center
City of Harrisonburg
Shenandoah Valley Goes Green
The City of Harrisonburg planned to develop a transit operations center for its growing bus fleet. This design-build proposal was located and conceived to reduce operational travel miles and increase the efficiency of the cleaning, fueling and maintenance regimes. The site plan was arranged to incorporate and extend a planned city bike trail and to restore a degraded stream and wildlife corridor along the site’s eastern edge.
The project consisted of four buildings arrayed around the primary bus parking lot. The office building is situated in a native-planted meadow-scape that would promote on-site biodiversity and provide visual continuity with the agrarian Shenandoah Valley landscape.
