Re-platting | Re-zoning | Upgrading for LEED Certification
This building was developed as a 25,000 square foot, design-build training facility for the US Forest Service. The property had to be re-assembled into one parcel, re-platted, and re-zoned, requiring public hearings. The total cost of the project came in under budget by $54,000 even though the ceiling was upgraded and the building systems required commissioning to meet US Green Building Council’s LEED Certification. The structure is also designed for high environmental and energy efficiency, through the use of waterless urinals, Low-E glazing and a direct control HVAC system, allowing the tenants to completely shut down the training wing of the building when not in use.
