The Canaveral Port Authority in Florida opened a $1.5 million facilities and fleet services building in October 2017 to replace multiple shop buildings around the port, according to Brian Carroll, CAFM, fleet manager.
The building has 19,500 square feet of interior space, and the fleet services area consists of 5,525 square feet inside as well as 1,525 square feet outside, under a canopy. The fleet area has eight work bays and houses fleet management offices and a supply room.
Shop floors are coated with epoxy paint for easy clean-up. The building has a 50-hp compressor with dryer and a 600-gallon air tank as well as aluminum air lines and hose reels throughout the building for easy access. Large 12-foot ceiling fans facilitate air circulation.
The building also house facilities management offices, a welding room, metalworking and woodworking shops, an automation shop, electrical and HVAC areas, and an employee break/training room.
Four fleet employees and 53 facilities employees work at the building. The fleet consists of 171 on- and off-road vehicle and equipment assets as well as 140 small engine assets.
