The MJL Truck Shop is a design & build project developed by Burke Design as the Architect and Burke Steel Buildings as the general contractor and steel building dealer.
This truck maintenance and fueling facility in Ventura, California serves a busy steel recycling and demolition operation consisting of a 4,750 sf four-bay mechanics shop and a separate diesel fueling facility.
The shop houses three enclosed work bays, one open work bay at the end of the building, an interior storage area, two rest rooms and a staff office. The shop building is manufactured by Nucor Steel Buildings out of Brigham City, Utah.
The fueling facility has a 12,000-gallon above ground diesel storage tank with a digital pumping system. A shed roof structure protects the diesel storage tank. The shed building covering the fuel tank is manufactured by Varco Pruden Metal Building out of Visalia, CA.
The grading for the 8” thick slab included over-excavation of five feet of soil under the building foundation. The apron slab in front of the shop is 12-inch-thick reinforced concrete.
Under the shop slab is a layer of 80 mil HDPE sheeting that acts as a physical barrier to keep any possible gas or oil fluid spills from getting down into the ground water. The shop building is a Pre-Engineered building with 4” thick insulated wall panels mounted above an 8’ tall masonry wainscote wall that provides protection from fork lift and equipment damage.
There is a massive shop air evacuation system on CO2 and NO2 alarm monitors that will kick on a 15,000 cfm exhaust fan to suck any hazardous fumes out of the shop should there be a spill of any kid. The building and fuel tank facility are fully fire sprinklered and alarmed for fire safety.
