Circle C Fire EMS

  1. 1. Circle C EMS and Fire Station LEED Performance Report BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT
  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.

  4. 4. CIRCLE C EMS and FIRE STATION South Mopac Expressway, Austin, TX, 78729 LEEDv2.0 New Construction AWARDED LEED SILVER SEPT 2006 WHITE. DOLCE & BARR ARCHITECTS The Circle C Fire/EMS station is a four-bay fire station with an integrated EMS unit and living quarters located within a newly annexed portion of Austin, Texas. The station serves a 24-hour staff of 4 fire and 3 EMS personnel. Capacity is for 15 people when the new community is populated. Because of its designated response area, the building had to be placed in the sensitive Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone, impacting many of the site development decisions for the project. Although fire stations are typically placed on 1.5 acre sites in more urban settings, a 9 acre site was purchased to provide a lower impervious cover percentage and to allow more flexibility in placing the 9,100 sq. ft. structure. To control rain runoff and minimize water usage, a 17,000 gallon rainwater collection system was provided for irrigation of the landscaping, which used drought-tolerant native plants. As products of the foundation excavation, much of the stone found in abundance on the site was used for retaining walls on the sloping site. Concrete was used for all driveway and parking areas because of its light color and negligible hydrocarbon content. Designated parking spaces were assigned for carpooling employees, alternative fueling stations were provided for electrical vehicles and a local artist provided an installation of local stone and plant material for public education about ecology issues.
