The Utah Department of Transportation has many maintenance facilities throughout the state built with much different construction types-except tilt-up. Our team won the design-build project for the remote site of the Milford UDOT Maintenance Complex and delivered a better value than any of their previous maintenance facilities.
The project combined previous designs of multiple outbuildings into one multifaceted building. The project included the maintenance building, salt storage building, brine storage tanks, and wash rack to create a consolidated building to add simplicity, site circulation, and significantly lower the cost of construction.
The maintenance building was designed and constructed to need little to no maintenance in the future. The facility features pull-through bays, architectural exposed concrete sandwich panels, an internal wash bay, multiple areas for long-term storage, and MagicSlab TM concrete floors throughout the shop areas, restroom and office areas.
The facilities’ design was intended for use on future UDOT sites as it is configurable for any site regardless of size, location, or budget. To reduce the size of the site, the design eliminates the need for outside storage by adding the salt storage as a bay instead of a separate building and adds a concrete storage room underneath the brine tank pedestals as part of the larger building. Even further, the design eliminates the need for evaporation ponds that were used in previous UDOT sites by processing all of the water from the conditioned wash bay instead of an outside wash rack through the local sewer district instead of draining to the ponds.
