    The new City Services Facility supports critical fleet/equipment maintenance and administrative functions of the City of Louisville’s Public Works Department. This multi-faceted facility is comprised of a 22,000 SF maintenance building, a 6,600 SF covered storage building, and a 9,888 SF metal storage building housing fleet bays, a wash bay, a welding/painting shop, a lubrication shop, storage space, a parts shop, an operations shop, open and enclosed offices, conference rooms, training rooms, and commons spaces. A nearby fuel station further supports the city’s vehicle fleet. To increase occupant comfort and to improve building energy efficiency, an in-floor hydronic heating system was installed for maintenance shops and office spaces. Direct evaporative cooling systems (with a low-energy-use profile) was employed to deliver plenty of cooled outside air into the fleet bays and lubrication shop. Three energy recovery ventilators with variable-speed fan drives further reduce building energy consumption. A sophisticated daylighting system utilizing occupancy sensors and photo sensors introduces copious amounts of health-promoting daylight into the facility while reducing the building’s dependence on electric lighting. In addition to complementing the facility’s daylighting system, the lighting technologies were designed to meet strict energy-efficiency, lighting quality, and maintenance requirements. The RMH Group served as the project’s mechanical (HVAC), electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineer
