Victor Valley Transit
The Victor Valley Transit Authority (VVTA) was looking for a Transit Campus design that was thought provoking and an icon for the California High Desert. The answer was a four building campus that invokes movement and sustainability generated through dynamic architectural forms. The campus includes a 26,000 square foot Administrative and Operations building, 36,000 square foot Maintenance Facility, a Fuel/Fare/Wash facility, a Public CNG fueling facility, as well as covered and uncovered storage for 254 buses. Relationships between all of the buildings were created through the use of color, form, and materials – keeping all the buildings strongly connected. LEED Gold certification will be realized through the use of many different sustainable design elements such as day lighting, building orientation, the use of optimized overhangs and louvers, a Photovoltaic bus canopy for on site renewable energy, a transpired solar collection wall, innovative wastewater technologies including water efficient landscaping, recycled and regional materials and several other sustainable strategies.
