Project Description

The work involves demolition of the existing Kirk Bus Facility Building and site at 2300 Kirk Avenue followed by construction of the new Bus Storage Facility on the former Kirk Bus Division Site. The new Bus Storage Facility will consist of parking for approximately 145 buses, fueling, vaulting, and bus wash services for the buses. Additionally, the bus transportation functions will be housed in this facility to include dispatch, locker rooms, assembly rooms, and administrative spaces. Fuel storage tanks, emergency generator, and facilities maintenance will be located in adjacent structures. Exterior to the building, the site will include limited parking and delivery access for the fuel storage tanks.

Community Involvement

On this project, there was a requirement for community involvement and relations, which Schlosser fulfilled by collaborating with the Cecil Kirk Community Center, performing community outreach for the children’s services. This included donations of uniforms, a turkey dinner of every family at the center, donations of winter coats for every child, and the donation of an ice cream truck to the local school. Schlosser obtained large donations through subcontractors, suppliers, and employees, of a pool table, piano, computer games, and athletic equipment. Schlosser has a continuing holiday drive that provides general holiday donations such as toys, board games, and funds for an annual holiday party. Schlosser also donated a delivery of healthy snacks to the center every other month and participated in a Thanksgiving food drive, a coat drive, and donated to the block party for the Kingdom Restorers International Church and Cecil Community.
