  5. 5. AUSTIN SHELTER FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN 3987 Tannehill Lane, Austin, TX, 78721 LEED BD+C: New Construction v3 – LEED 2009 AWARDED LEED GOLD MAY 2019 McKinney York Architects The Austin Shelter for Women and Children was reopened in September 2018 after renovation and expansion. The expansion added sleeping quarters for 32-34 residents, a larger reception area and lobby, and additional child care facilities. Operated by the Salvation Army, the shelter provides “wrap-around” services to women to ensure that homelessness is brief, rare, and non-occurring. Targeted to LEED Gold certification, the sustainability of this project is achieved in many different ways. A nature play learning space promotes and expands children’s understanding of the natural environment by providing exposure to natural play materials and a natural setting. This project has also made great strides in achieving regional priority credits. Permeable pavers and a rain garden with stacked detention contribute to habitat protection. PV panels provide over 6900 kWh of energy per year. At least 75% of waste generated onsite by weight was recycled, reused, or salvaged.

AUSTIN SHELTER FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN 3987 Tannehill Lane, Austin, TX, 78721 LEED GOLD 2019 REDUCES ENERGY CONSUMPTION 1 2 3 4.94% of the total energy costs have been offset through Photovoltaic panels to renewable energy generated on-site. This building is on GreenChoice 100% renewable energy powered by West Texas wind for 2 years. A superior envelope thermal composition at the walls and roof, as well as low-e, insulated, argon- filled glazing provides energy savings. This annual savings is equivalent to: 243Metric tons of GHG emissions 29 Energy consumed by Per year Acres of forest286 Carbon sequestered by 24 Times Driving around Earth 36%REDUCTION ENERGY USE 39%REDUCTION ENERGY COST BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT Total Energy Use Electricity Provided by Austin Energy: 1,046.6 MBtu On-Site Renewable Energy (Solar): 6,988 kWh – 4.7% of Total Natural Gas: 324 MBtu STRATEGIES:
