The Division 13 Bus Maintenance and Operations facility will serve as bus maintenance, operations, and service facility located in downtown Los Angeles. The project will be constructed on existing MTA properties, located at the northeast corner of East Cesar Chavez Av. and Vignes St. The project delivery method is Design-Bid-Build.
Division 13 will set the example for sustainable design (LEED [Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design] Gold goal) and the responsible use of natural resources. Many of the materials specified in the construction of this project are regionally sourced and/or have a high recycled content. Attention has been paid to the use of potable water with an exemplary system of storm water reclamation and reuse for bus operations and washing, and low maintenance native vegetation. Storm water run-off and the urban heat island effect are also addressed by a demonstration green roof on the transportation building.
