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.

  4. 4. McBETH RECREATION CENTER 2401 Columbus Drive, Austin, TX, 78746 LEEDv2.0 ID+C: Commercial Interiors AWARDED LEED SILVER AUG 2011 METHOD ARCHITECTURE (FORMERLY ARCHITECTURE PLUS) Located in Zilker Park, Danny G. McBeth Recreation Center is dedicated to providing the citizens of Austin with a variety of quality, community-based leisure programs and meaningful recreation experiences that enhance quality of living. Year round, the center offers activities for youth, teens and adults including spring break and summer day camps, as well as recreational programs for challenged adults. The existing 3000 square foot building was initially used as a police substation, and then converted into a recreation center to alleviate the overuse of the main gymnasium building across the street. The design of the new, fully accessible single-story facility consists of a multipurpose room, kitchen, craft room, game room, outdoor picnic areas, accessible playscape, and sand play area. In addition, the park is blessed with many acres of nature and native trees, including oak and juniper that make the natural and wild setting very secluded. Site design preserves the surrounding native landscape. Strategies include limiting the construction area, restricting movement of construction staff, materials and equipment to the front and in close proximity of the building, and establishing adaptive grasses. Impervious covered is reduced by relocating parking to the access road, while providing additional ADA compatible parking spaces and accessible route to enhance the entry approach.
