B. Thayer Associates is providing structural engineering support services for the Queens Village Bus Depot, a 189,000-square foot transportation facility. To provide the facility with adequate service resources to maintain and prolong the useful life of the bus fleet, the Department of Buses (DOB) has requested the replacement of the existing HVAC systems.
The project scope of work includes the replacement of existing ceiling mounted H&V units and exhaust fans with new, more efficient equipment, while also identifying areas where ventilation rates can be reduced to meet the requirements of the Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State (ECCCNYS). The proposed new HVAC equipment will be roof-mounted for improved maintenance access. B. Thayer Associates will be assessing the structural capacity for the existing roof for the new equipment and will determine whether the existing structural framing configuration will have to be modified to accommodate the new equipment.
