Project Description

W. M. Schlosser was awarded a contract for the renovation of the Northwest Transfer Station, which is Baltimore’s only municipal-operated recycle transfer station. Originally constructed in 1977, the city’s recycling collection trucks bring recyclable materials to the transfer station 6 days a week. Work on this contract included a complete replacement of the pre-engineered metal building skin, including a standing seem floating metal roof system, translucent panels and skylights, metal wall panels, and insulated metal wall panels. Structural repairs were performed to the building’s existing steel frame and aluminum entrance gates. The interior spaces of the building were reconfigured to relocate the men’s and women’s bathrooms, install a new break room, a new sprinkler room, and new office space and file storage rooms. New plumbing, mechanical, electrical, lighting, fire alarm, and fire suppression systems were installed. New interior walls were installed using both masonry construction and drywall on light gage metal framing. Site improvements included installation of a new wheel wash for street sweeper trucks, and a dewatering trench drain tied into the sanitary sewer. Work outside the building included the installation of a new prefabricated equipment storage building that houses new pressure washer equipment to clean trucks, as well as the installation of a new prefabricated attendant booth, and installation of an outdoor concrete and metal deck.
