CNG PUBLIC WORKS GARAGE UPGRADES:
Many cities are looking at the option of natural gas vehicles. With new federal funding available and an obvious cost savings over a diesel or gasoline powered fleet, it is a viable choice. However the garages where these busses or other vehicles are serviced, do need to be modified. Below are some details of a CNG PUBLIC WORKS GARAGE UPGRADE we did for the City of Nashua NH.

Also, this Design & Build Project was completed on-time, at Contract Cost (no change orders) and with quality workmanship. The quality, detail and responsiveness of the Design-Build Team and the outstanding cooperation of the BPW Garage Staff promoted the successful Project Delivery.
We would be pleased to provide services for your CNG Garage Upgrade.
