Weston, MA, United States, 2011/02/24 - CTA Construction Co. Inc. has completed a new $11.25 million public works facility for Weston, Mass.
Started 16 months ago, this complex project included the relocation of the existing DPW to temporary quarters, hazardous material abatement and demolition of several existing structures. Now Weston DPW has two new buildings, an operations courtyard, a fueling station, exterior material storage bins and covered storage areas.
The facility, at 190 Boston Post Road By-Pass, was completed while maintaining access to the adjacent Weston police station and the sand and salt storage areas, both of which share a common entrance off of Route 20 with the new DPW facility. CTA met the access challenge through advanced planning, scheduling and sequencing around the day-to-day operations of the police department.
At 18,400 square feet, the new garage building includes room to store vehicles and equipment, covered storage areas, and a vehicle wash bay with a wastewater collection and recycling system. Attached to the garage is a 1,100-square-foot fuel island canopy for diesel and gasoline pumps to service all town vehicles.
The new operations building is 23,500 square feet and houses administrative offices, workshops and vehicle maintenance operations. The state-of-the-art vehicle maintenance facility includes a fluid distribution system, exhaust venting, testing equipment, lifts and bridge cranes.
The buildings are constructed of concrete foundations and structural steel with masonry and metal siding. The site also includes parking and bins for the Department of Public Works to store raw materials.
Headquartered in Waltham, CTA Construction built the facility in cooperation with Weston & Sampson, a Peabody-based engineering firm, and HKT Architects of Somerville.
In the past 10 years, CTA has completed more than $300 million worth of public construction projects, including schools, libraries and public works facilities. CTA has also built public works facilities in Stoughton, Watertown and Lexington, for which it received the 2010 Public Works Project of the Year from the American Public Works Association and the 2010 Excellence in Construction Eagle Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors of Massachusetts.
CTA (ctaconstruction.com) has earned an average rating of 93 out of 100 by the Massachusetts Division of Capital Asset Management, a state agency overseeing public construction contractors.
