The City of Goshen hired Jones Petrie Rafinski (JPR) through a competitive selection process to conduct a detailed programming schematic design study of a proposed reuse of an existing 20,000 SF building. The City vehicle maintenance facility had completely outgrown their space in the former City water works building.
The City needed an efficient, well-planned facility designed to serve all of the vehicles owned by the City including police and fire vehicles, plow trucks, loaders, and even lawn care equipment.
The planning phase included many planning sessions with City staff and a careful approach to accommodating all expected needs. The plan led to a decision to remodel the building and double its size to accommodate growth and expansion of the fleet and services. Following the planning phase, detailed designs and contracts prepared by JPR led to a successful bidding and procurement of a very qualified local contractor.
