The King County Department of Transportation needed new bus operations and vehicle maintenance buildings for their South Interim Base in Tukwila, WA. This complex project included three operations buildings, two maintenance buildings, and a small hostler shack that totaled 12,970 square feet. The facilities needed to support all office staff, maintenance staff, and bus drivers included locker rooms, an exercise room, a classroom, a drivers’ lounge, a TV room, kitchen areas, and a dispatch area.
Despite site issues and delays from the pandemic, Modern was able to meet the original project deadlines. Buildings were installed at a fraction of the time compared to stick built. Specifications from the City of Seattle, King County, and the Transportation Department placed strict parameters on the new facility, all of which had to be met within an equally strict budget.
