RIDOT Portsmouth Maintenance Facility

RGB began the planning and design process for this project through work on initial bridging documents with the civil engineer. The Portsmouth Maintenance Facility is a much-needed improvement for personnel and equipment tasked with taking care of state roads throughout most of Bristol and Newport counties. The new 22,500-square foot building on Boyd’s Lane is five times larger than its predecessor. The old building, just a short distance away on Anthony Road, was so small that RIDOT could not park its fleet of trucks indoors. Exposure to a harsh marine climate led to corrosion far more quickly than other trucks in RIDOT’s maintenance fleet. The $7.4 million facility has a number of energy-saving features such as special insulated panels covering the entire structure. The old building had cramped quarters, failing roofing and siding, and lacked storage areas and insulation. Instead of a lift to safely work under vehicles, the old garage had a pit in the floor. A picnic table served as the only conference table. The project was completed on time and $500,000 under budget.
