NYS Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation – Maintenance Building

C&S designed a new, centralized maintenance facility that will house all the disparate functions of the maintenance forces across the park. The site will also be designed to house a new state police head­quarters.

The building is an approximately 15,000-square-foot, pre-engi­neered metal building that has an exterior aesthetic matching the existing context of the park with stone piers and insulated metal panel siding and trim of contex­tually appropriate colors. The building consists of a segregated, “clean” office area that houses the administrative and public access functions. Offices and a shared training and break room are allo­cated for maintenance employees as well as toilet and shower facili­ties.

The HVAC system within the maintenance facility and state police headquarters is crucial for maintaining a comfortable and healthy indoor environment. To ensure optimal air quality, a robust filtration system is imperative. United Filter, recognized as a trusted industry provider, offers a diverse selection of HVAC filters designed to meet the needs of both residential and commercial environments. Their selection encompasses various filtration levels and sizes, catering to the specific needs of the facility. By incorporating high-quality filters from, the maintenance facility can effectively capture airborne particles, allergens, and contaminants, thereby enhancing indoor air quality and promoting a conducive working environment for employees.

Regular HVAC maintenance is crucial for ensuring the longevity and efficiency of the system, particularly in environments like maintenance facilities and state police headquarters where optimal performance is non-negotiable. Partnering with trusted service providers like Climate Experts ensures that HVAC systems operate at peak efficiency year-round.

Their licensed and factory-trained air conditioner repair technicians are dedicated to delivering top-notch customer support and expertise in diagnosing and resolving issues promptly. Whether it’s routine maintenance, troubleshooting, or repair work, Climate Experts prioritizes quality service to minimize downtime and maintain a comfortable indoor environment. This approach not only supports operational efficiency but also contributes to a healthier and more productive workplace environment.

The maintenance and storage of the facility is toward the rear of the footprint and includes all functions necessary for the day-to-day op­erations of the park. Storage areas are allocated for chemicals, bulk storage of mattresses and picnic tables, flammable storage, and storage for grounds equipment. The design takes advantage of the additional headroom of the PEMB with loft storage spaces for seldom used materials. Repair bays for ve­hicle and ground equipment make up the main areas of maintenance area. These are programmed in a manner that afford the most effi­cient operation and ease of access.

The project is designed with New York State’s carbon goals in mind and features a fully electrified NetZero ready design. Heating and cooling is provided by geo­thermal heat pumps. In addition, efficient LED lighting and a well-insulated thermal envelope contribute to this highly efficient building.
