National architecture, engineering and planning firm Bergmann will design Greece Central School District's new transportation and support services facility. The project will involve design and construction oversight for a 65,000-square-foot building that will house a number of departments for the district, including Transportation, Buildings & Grounds, Central Stores, Technology, Professional Learning, Facilities, Planning & Operations and the Print Shop.
The new facility will be located at the intersection of Latta Road and Mt. Read Blvd. where the existing transportation buildings are located. To make room for the new facility, the project includes the demolition of two buildings, the relocation of the district pole barn, the demolition of the existing vehicle fueling island and a new four-acre lot purchased by the district. A unique feature of the structure will be the rooftop solar array which can supply a portion of the building’s electrical energy requirements.
“The school district selected Bergmann for our experience designing transportation facilities and our reputation in the local community,” said Andrew Hart, practice leader, Northeast Buildings Division. “This is truly a big win for Bergmann’s Northeast Buildings Group and will start a new market segment for us in K–12 education.”
Bergmann will provide architecture, mechanical/electrical/plumbing, structural engineering, interior design, landscape architecture, environmental and survey services on the project. Bergmann is also partnering with a K–12 architecture firm, Young and Wright. Young and Wright will assist with State Education Department approvals, as well as the programming and schematic design.
Bergmann’s experience with civic projects is extensive, including the redesign of the Irondequoit Department of Public Works facility which burned down in 2016 and is now nearing completion. Bergmann also recently completed a design project with the Renaissance Academy Charter School in Rochester.
