The Cabot Yard Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Facility was built as part of an MBTA initiative to transition their buses from diesel fuel to natural gas. This design-build project features a covered, 24-hour accessible, four-bay compressed natural gas fueling station and compressor building, providing the MBTA with clean and sustainable sources of energy for their fleet. BOND installed wood pile foundations, concrete, steel buildings and canopies, electrical and compressed natural gas fuel piping for the station. The team also provided commissioning services for the CNG equipment.
