Reliable Government Fleet – Must Have for Government Projects

At Summit Fleet we understand that local, county, state and federal governments back more major construction projects that any single entity in the nation. Most of the time, a reliable government fleet is needed. It takes a lot to service a town and the one you live in is no different. The well-being and safety of citizens is based on the amenities available in a town. It’s hard to imagine your town without a local hospital, school, fire station or post office. Without these services, it would make everyday life very different.

Here are a few government construction projects currently in the works in our country:

Martin Army Community Hospital in Fort Benning, GA

  • The 745,000 square foot hospital doubles the size of the original facility.
  • This will include two wings, an outpatient clinic and a 70-bed inpatient facility.
  • The design is a mixture of precast concrete, glass and natural stone. It also includes a vegetative roof and an energy lighting system.

Harris County 911 Call Center in Houston, TX

  • When finished this center will be a two-story, 25,000 square foot facility. It’s being designed to withstand a category five hurricane. This will help employment around the area and the team will be able to assist more people in emergency situations who call the number.

USPS Morgan Post Office in New York, NY 

Upgrades to the north and south buildings include:

  • Replacing all 1,700 windows in the north building.
  • Installing a 100,000 square foot green roof.
  • Updating electrical service between the north and south buildings consisting of 14,000 feet.
  • Updating the loading dock.
  • Repairing to the North building’s steam system.

Fort Bend County Jail Renovation and Expansion in Richmond TX

Expansion and renovation includes:

  • 213,000 square foot addition of jail space.
  • A new connector attaching the expansion to the old facility.
  • The nine-story tower will add an additional 1,008 beds to prevent overcrowding.

The construction of these facilities takes myriad resources and manpower. That’s where Summit Fleet comes in. Average trucks may not be enough for these large government projects. Every project can be vastly different, but know that no matter what size your project, Summit Fleet has you covered for your government fleet.
