Watertown, CT – STV|DPM, part of STV, a national firm providing a broad range of design and construction management services, announced that it completed the physical relocation of the North East Transportation Company, Inc. (NET).
Through a management contract with Connecticut Department of Transportation, NET provides public bus transit services in the greater Waterbury, Meriden and Wallingford areas. The company operates a fleet of 84 vehicles and employs 155 people.
NET was established in 1925 and had operated from a converted brass manufacturing facility located in Waterbury for more than 36 years.
The newly-constructed, state-of-the-art facility is located at 761 Frost Bridge in Watertown. The site of the new facility, once home to a drive-in theater, now features covered employee parking on the lower level, a main level that provides inside vehicle storage and maintenance, and a second level with offices and work areas for the administrative staff.
NET’s most important objective was a smooth and disruption-free relocation of its 21-hour operation. Services provided by STV|DPM entailed the development of a detailed, multi-phased move schedule that included the relocation of employees as well as the moving and rigging of equipment, write up of mover/rigging RFP, assistance with the management in the selection of the mover/rigger, management and approval of invoices and on-site supervision for all move related activities.
