The Leon A. Wurl Service Center is a maintenance, shops and office facility for the Town of Erie Public Works Department and Parks Department. It features a 9,560 sf Class "B" office building that connects with a 16,728 sf maintenance building on approximately 7.5 developed acres.
Sustainable features on the maintenance building include:
White TPO roof
Photovoltaic panels with a power purchase agreement
Full heat recovery
Instant-hot water units
The Center also includes a 250,000 sf service yard with a 3,000 gallon fueling station, magnesium chloride/salt storage facility and truck wash pad.
An intensive preconstruction planning phase kept design-related changes to .6%, or 75% below the industry average. The final contract was $202,000 below the original contract.
Pinkard completed this fast-tracked project 56 days ahead of schedule, allowing the Town of Erie to completely relocate its maintenance operations well ahead of the winter season.
"I want to express my gratitude for your work in Erie. Not only did the building exceed all expectations in quality and execution we appreciate the efforts the Pinkard team went to making the process as professional and cooperative as possible. You took no shortcuts in fulfilling the Client's and Designer's needs and vision as a prime measure of success. Thank you for making our work easy."
