The VIA Paratransit Operations and Maintenance Facility in San Antonio, Texas, was designed to consolidate VIA’s transit operations into one central location by renovating a 90,000 square-foot building on an 11.5-acre campus. Previously housing a large nightclub, this challenging adaptive reuse project included an extensive site overhaul to transform the facility into administrative offices, vehicle maintenance facilities, and driver support hub/lounge areas. For this Design-Build project, headed up by Nunnelly General Contractor and designed by RVK Architecture, MEP provided both design and construction administration engineering and full MEP systems commissioning services. The project’s commissioning scope included testing and verification of several rooftop air handling units (RTUs), fan-powered variable air volume boxes (VAVs), dedicated computer room air-conditioning units (CRACs), a 650 KW diesel generator, and natural gas radiant heaters and DX make-up air units supporting the expansive vehicle maintenance areas. Commissioning services for this project were completed in Spring 2023.
