The City of Albuquerque has moved forward with its Solid Waste Vehicle Maintenance Facility, selecting HB as the general contractor for the project. The new building, which will be located at the existing Solid Waste campus, will streamline repair, maintenance, and administration of Solid Waste collection trucks.
HB Construction will work alongside CABQ, JRMA Architects, and local design firm Wilson & Company to deliver phase one of the improvements. The 55,000 sq ft facility will include 13 repair bays, welding bays, a tire shop, steam bay, and a wash bay. The North side of the building will house locker rooms, training space, and office/conference space.
“Part of the program is making sure we’re much more efficient about how we operate and how we move our municipal waste in a safe and efficient manner,” said Lawrence Rael, COO for CABQ.
Solid Waste revenues are being utilized to support this much needed improvement.
“This is an exciting project because it represents a client that we have worked with for over 25 years and have had many successful partnerships with. We have put together a strong team and are looking forward to getting started,” said Jason Harrington, CEO for HB Construction.
