Austin Energy RP/SOC/NOC Finish-Out - LEED Report

  1. 1. BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT SCC RP/SOC/NOC FINISHOUT LEED Performance Report
  2. 2. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The following Performance Reports were created in accordance with Council Resolution 20071129-045. The City of Austin is a recognized international leader in sustainable building practices in which municipal building strive to conserve energy, water, and other natural resources while promoting human health and safety. The holistic approach to architecture creates high-quality and enduring structures that enhance the economic value and reduce the lifecycle costs of a building. Design and construction of buildings are driven by the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) guidelines and promote these goals. The following reports provide information about municipal buildings, highlight LEED credentials, and promote sustainable building achievements.

  5. 5. SCC RP/SOC/NOC FINISHOUT 2500 Montopolis Drive, Austin, TX 78741 LEED CI: Commercial Interior v2009 AWARDED LEED GOLD OCTOBER 2020 MWM Design Group This project is a finish-out of the existing Austin Energy System Control Building. The project scope contains a 10,000 square foot shell space to a new Operations and Control Room with some associated office support spaces. The existing shell HVAC system and electrical distribution is reused to support the finish-out. New interior LED lighting and lighting controls were installed to match the existing fixtures and controls previously installed in the original design. The project utilizes 100% renewable energy for electricity. The renewable energy is produced by wind farms that are in West Texas and is provided to the project through GreenChoice, a Green-e certified energy program. The project uses a variety of low flow fixtures throughout the project to achieve significant water use reduction. The owner’s mandatory recycling program mandates that employees bring their recycling to strategic recycling stations throughout the building. The location of project offers convenient pedestrian access to public transportation and other services. Lighting controls are available in 100% of individual occupant spaces and shared spaces to meet the occupants’ needs and preferences.
  6. 6. 45.9% REDUCTION ENERGY USE SCC RP/SOC/NOC FINISHOUT 2500 Montopolis Drive, Austin, TX 78741 LEED GOLD 2020 REDUCES ENERGY CONSUMPTION 1 2 3 Localized occupancy-controlled lighting for 76% of the total connecting lighting load that aids in reducing artificial light use. This building is on GreenChoice 100% renewable energy powered by West Texas wind for 2 years. Reduction of lighting power density for all interior lighting by adapting 84% of LED fixtures allows for a more efficient use of energy This annual savings is equivalent to: BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT STRATEGIES: LED lightbulbs 379 949 Cell phones’ watt usage 3,798 Watts of Power
  7. 7. REDUCES POTABLE WATER USE Rotating Stream Sprinklers are responsible for about 30% of the reduction in irrigation potable water use. High-efficiency water fixtures allow more water flow with less energy use and provides a sustainable alternative to conventional systems Potable water is a valuable resource that can be significantly reduced in the design phase of a building Per year Drinking water for Average sized swimming pools Bathtubs This annual savings is equivalent to: BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT STRATEGIES: 41% REDUCTION INDOOR POTABLE WATER USE SCC RP/SOC/NOC FINISHOUT 2500 Montopolis Drive, Austin, TX 78741 LEED GOLD 2020 1 2 3 Reducing portable water also reduces energy used to treat water supply and in domestic water heating. Potable water is a valuable resource that can be significantly reduced in the design phase of a building High-efficiency low-flow fixtures are used to help reduce water consumption and costs, yielding water savings and reduced utility bills 303 kGal of water 16 1,684 7,579
  8. 8. 1 2 3 DIVERTS MATERIALS FROM LANDFILL Minimizing materials going into landfills through reuse, salvaging, and recycling are ways to conserve natural resources Reducing the amount of material needed and recycling content can significantly decrease waste Prefabricated components are a great method of reducing material scraps and packaging This savings is equivalent to: 31 Metric tons of GHG emissions 4 Energy consumed by Per year Garbage trucks 2 Times Driving around Earth 3 51% REDUCTION LANDFILL WASTE BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT STRATEGIES: Wood 22% 14% Metal 12% Sheetrock 3% Other A CLOSER LOOK AT DIVERTED WASTE: SCC RP/SOC/NOC FINISHOUT 2500 Montopolis Drive, Austin, TX 78741 LEED GOLD 2020
  9. 9. This savings is equivalent to: = Alternative transportation includes: Metric tons of CO2 emissions Miles of commuting per year PROMOTES ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION 1 2 3 Vicinity to public transportation further promotes alternative methods of travel No new vehicle parking spaces were added on-site BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT What about shared transportation? STRATEGIES: There are 3 Capital Metro lines within ¼ mile of the building.
