The Mendocino Transit Authority (MTA) services a population of 90,000 across a 2,800-mile swath of northern California. Its vehicle fleet logs more than 881,000 miles annually. With numbers like that, it’s imperative to have a state-of-the-art shop to keep buses running in top shape. In August 2012, the Mendocino County agency dedicated its new bus maintenance facility in the county seat of Ukiah. The 17,196-square-foot structure features maintenance bays along with fueling and vehicle wash areas, plus storage space.
It was built with KingZip standing seam insulated metal roof panel and Optimo insulated wall panels. These panels consist of a simple yet smart design made from an insulated foam core material sandwiched between two metal skins.
