MBTA Silver Line - South Boston Piers Transitway Vehicle Maintenance Facility

Boston, Massachusetts


This $33M state-of-the-art fueling, repair and storage facility completed in 2005 to service the MBTA’s newest fleet of CNG and dual-mode electric/diesel buses for its recently inaugurated transit service, the Silver Line. Serving as Lead Architect to Prime consultant Stone and Webster, Inc., the design team created a massing language to establish a visual hierarchy and site presence for the otherwise functionally separated building organization dictated by the physical maneuverability of the 60-foot vehicles on this extremely compact and densely built site. Situated alongside the MBTA’s existing Police Headquarters, the new facility also serves to mark this site as a prominent MBTA location.


Charles Bradley participated in the design of this maintenance facility from Schematic Design to Construction Documents. He was also involved in the design development and detailing of the Fueling, Bus Wash and Repair buildings in the same complex.
