GOING GREEN City of Austin Public Saftey Building - LEED 3.0 Silver
This project consists of:
  • New 50,000 sf Classroom Building with indoor multi-purpose training
    area, currently striving for LEED 3.0 Silver.
  • New 44,730 sf Pistol range with state of the art lighting Control system
  • 3,350 sf Burn Building
  • Various Outdoor Improvements


Lighting
  • high efficiency lighting to reduce watts/sqft
  • multi-level control to meet occupant needs
  • switching zoned by space function and use to save energy and meet
    occupant needs
  • motions sensor control in small areas to reduce lighting waste when no
    one  is around
  • lighting relay panel for control of large spaces for simplified control and
    scheduling of auto off
  • state of the art lighting control system for lighting at pistol range,
    allowing for various occupant situational uses

Plumbing
  • high efficiency 1/8 gal flush urinals for water savings
  • motion sensor water closets for water savings
  • motion sensor lavatories for water savings

Mechanical
  • Energy Model shows 25.8% better than baseline
  • high efficiency equipment for energy savings
  • dedicated Outside Air Machine for constant high occupant load areas
    to control humidity while meeting code
  • CO2 sensors for control of Outside Air requirements for variable
    occupant load spaces to save energy while meeting code
  • bathroom exhaust controlled by motions sensor for energy control
  • selected exhaust fans controlled by timers and energy management to
    save energy when not in required
  • low static duct work design for noise control and energy savings
  • DDC controls for monitoring of space conditions and scheduling of AC
    units
  • AC zoned by space function and use to save energy meet occupant
    needs
  • integrated control of pistol range exhaust with lighting for single point
    control
