The Big Picture

The growing Jackson, Wyoming community enlisted GE Johnson to construct a new facility for their Southern Teton Area Rapid Transit (START) Bus operation. Having outgrown their old building, they chose to engage in a multi-phase campaign to sustain and broaden their public transportation system. The first phase involves a bus storage area, wash bay, administrative offices and an interior circulation area. The project was designed and constructed to meet LEED Silver (certification was not pursued) and includes the following sustainable strategies:

Ingenuity in Action

Building Information Modeling (BIM) was used for clash detection of the MEP systems. This process identified more than 25 clashes and saved a great deal of time and money by allowing the issues to be addressed in the preconstruction phase.
