Ill. City's Consolidated Garage Helps Save $1.3M

December 23, 2013

The City of Springfield, Ill., has awarded a $370,000 contract to convert a former concrete wall factory into a joint maintenance facility for city fleet vehicles from various departments.

Once R.L. Vollintine Construction begins work in early January, the facility should be completed in 90 days. The contract includes upgrades for drainage, electrical and exhaust systems, and a sprinkler system to the 28,000-square-foot former Super Walls factory at Capitol Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive.

The garage will be used by police, fire, public works, and City Water, Light and Power.

The city opted to consolidate four separate maintenance garages following a study by a CST Fleet Services in 2012 that recommended the move among $1.3 million in cost saving initiatives. The report called the separate garages wasteful, reports the State Journal-Register.
