In February of 2007 we were contacted by Mr. Andy Thompson of the Birnie Bus Company, a School and Charter Bus company based in Rome NY, about building a new maintenance facility and offices for lease to their primary bus dealer, Leonard Bus Sales based in Deposit, NY, on a site in the Griffiss Technology Park.
The original intent was to construct the building in 2007, but several environmental and legal issues delayed the land purchase. The owner eventually resolved the issues and we were able to break ground in July of 2008.
The 22,500 sf Butler building features (10) service bays with (2) bus lifts, high-efficiency lighting, a vehicle exhaust system, a pre-cast concrete Parts Mezzanine bearing on architectural concrete masonry and 4,600 sf Offices and Shop Support System.
