The Spokane Central Service Center has been awarded a National Award of Merit in the Design-Build Institute of America’s (DBIA) Design-Build Award Competition.
A team including OAC Services, Inc. (OAC), Garco Construction, Bernado Wills Architects, and Coffman Engineers worked with the City of Spokane to build a consolidated Fleet Maintenance and Solid Waste operations center for the City.
The two-story, 57,500-square-foot Spokane Central Service Center is a $16.5 million facility located on the south side of a 32-acre, site in the Chief Garry Park Neighborhood that’s west of Nelson and north of Broadway. The Center:

  • Consolidated repair and maintenance of the City’s large vehicle fleet in one location.
  • Consolidated Solid Waste and Street operations with Fleet operations, including fueling stations, vehicle washing, and repair facilities, resulting in reduced travel time and fuel costs.
  • Replaced aging facilities that were exceedingly inefficient with new safe, and secure facilities for employees and improved operations.
  • Allowed for a conversion to compressed natural gas for the City’s fleet of solid waste collection trucks.

“The City selected a design-build approach to this project to speed construction time and maintain better control over costs,” says Ken Gimpel, the City’s manager on the project and Assistant Public Works Director. “We were very pleased with our design-build team and our results.”
The DBIA Design-Build Project awards showcase projects who have successfully implemented design-build best practices through excellence in design, process, and teaming while achieving budget and schedule goals and exceeding owner expectations. The Spokane Service Center project is among several other award-winning projects throughout the country that are being honored. The project was recognized in the state, county, municipal category in the prestigious competition.
