WMATA Metrobus-Bladensburg CNG Station

Washington, DC

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority retained RGB to provide construction documents, survey damage, and make recommendations to repair and convert two buildings at its Metrobus-Bladensburg Division to house a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station capable of refueling a new 100-bus fleet of gas-powered urban transit buses.

The modifications and upgrades totaled $12 million and involved gas protection, fire proofing, life safety code compliance, electrical, mechanical, HVAC, some plumbing and roofing, and considerable gas/fire protection equipment. The intent was to convert the facilities to house CNG-powered vehicles.
