PA Turnpike Commission Trevose Maintenance Facility, Trevose, PA

Mega-Mobility

Relocation of the Trevose Maintenance Facility was part of the first phase of the $650 million mega project to link the NJ Turnpike (I-95), northeast of Philadelphia, to the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-276) with an interchange. Construction of the new, $17 million maintenance complex, next to the existing one, makes room for the planned, widened interchange and resulting fluid route through the Northeast.  

 

Why this facility?

With unused property and a location central to several districts, Trevose Maintenance Facility was an ideal site to upgrade. 

 

Striving to LEED

Urban provided construction management for the six new buildings that compose the facility. These buildings were designed and constructed to meet LEED Silver Certification standards:

  • Maintenance buliding - 23,360 SF with offices, a vehicle service and repair garage, and an automated vehicle wash system
  • Equipment and vehicle storage building - 21,540 SF 
  • Salt storage shed - 11,650 SF with reinforced concrete walls and wood truss roof framing
  • Electrical building - 2,410 SF housing the main switch gear, emergency generator, and transfer switch
  • Pre-fabricated building for communication tower equipment
  • Canopy over new fueling station and underground storage tanks - 755 SF

 

Moving, Yet Maintaining

Substantial planning was required for the temporary relocations of communications equipment, fueling facilities, and maintenance activities that allowed the Pennsylvania Turnpike to maintain full operations during construction. Work occurred in four phases, including concurrent construction of several buildings; demolition of the existing maintenance building, salt shed, and fueling station; removal and disposal of underground storage tanks, hazardous waste, and contaminated soil; and installation of upgraded utilities, paving, fencing, and landscaping. 

 

Highlights:

  • Constructability reviews
  • Specification review
  • Preliminary schedule development
  • Agency coordination
  • Construction management 
  • LEED-Certified Construction  (pending)
