About this project
Luckett & Farley provided full architectural and engineering design services for this 17,000 square foot, $4.7 million facility to accommodate additional maintenance functions for periodic maintenance and bus detailing. The facility also includes maintenance training bays and a second floor with training classrooms and administrative facilities. Sustainable highlights include and extensive green roof, windows, translucent wall panels, and roof skylights for daylighting, daylighting controls, grey water collection system for flushing toilets/urinals, energy efficient VRV (Variable Refrigerant Volume) mechanical system, and bioswale for storm water quantity and quality management.
The existing site was nearly 100% impervious. A Bio-swale and a vegetative roof were proposed to restore habitat. 61.8% of the site was restored, and in doing so, the design resulted in a 90.65% decrease in quantity and rate of storm water runoff, and an 80% of total suspended solids are removed from the runoff. The roof and non-roof surfaces are designed to reduce heat island effect. The landscaping installed does not require permanent irrigation. Water strategies include low flow lavatories, showers, and faucets and a rainwater harvesting system has been installed for non-potable water for flushing toilets and urinals using 79.8% less water.
98.65% (335.75 tons) of on site generated construction waste was diverted from the landfill. The construction utilized materials having 39.15% recycled content, 59.83% materials within 500 miles from the project site and 81.52% of the wood used on the project is from FSC certified forests. 98.65% (335.75 tons) of on site generated construction waste was diverted from the landfill.
