SDMC- Matzke Transportation and Maintenance Facility Complex

This project was a nearly total rebuild of the SDMC – Matzke Complex.  The facility serves the Manatee County School Board and includes the Transportation offices, Vehicle Maintenance, Facilities Operation and Maintenance, and Storage Facilities as well as the School Board’s Purchasing Warehouse, Records and Purchasing, and Construction Services.

The work included construction of new buildings for critical functions on site, renovations of certain existing buildings, and a major reconfiguration of the site.

The new construction included 103,142 SF of new buildings to house the facilities maintenance and operations, transportation personnel management, vehicle maintenance (buses, large maintenance vehicles, fleet vehicles), bus driver’s lounge, vehicle wash facility, and two new fuel islands. This construction was completed in Phase One while the existing facilities remained operational.

The second phase consisted of demolition of existing buildings, construction of a storage area, and completion of the extensive site work and utilities.
