Mother Clara Hale Bus Depot 

Originally a trolley barn, Manhattan’s 146th Street and Lenox Avenue has been home to a bus depot since 1939. After two modifications, the aging depot was replaced to support the city’s transition to ultra-low emission buses. STV served as architect- and engineer-of-record as part of a design-build team for the 390,000-square-foot Mother Clara Hale Bus Depot. The New York City Transit project, which features low-emission boilers, solar air heating, heat-recovery air handling units, natural lighting, rainwater recycling and a green roof, was awarded LEED® Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

STV used Building Information Modeling (BIM) software to facilitate an integrated design and superior contract documents, reducing conflicts that might otherwise delay construction and increase costs. The firm provided architectural design, as well as mechanical, electrical, plumbing, industrial, structural, communications and geotechnical engineering design services.
