Construction of a new pre-engineered metal building garage to house Life Flight & State Medical Assistant Team (SMAT) emergency vehicles of varying sizes. The pre-engineered design accommodates 12 automated overhead doors from 14’x14’ to 18’x14’ as well as extensive exhaust capability to support removal of fumes from the running vehicles. Each vehicle is equipped with rechargeable equipment which needs to be fully charged at the onset of any emergency call. Each bay of the garage is equipped with quick-connect cord reels specially designed to connect to the charging ports located on the exterior of each emergency vehicle. Each bay door is automated specifically to the emergency unit housed in that particular bay. These emergency response vehicles have a 24/7 required readiness and this facility is adaptable to 24/7 emergency power.
