  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. The Public Safety Training Facility is home to the training facilities for Austin’s first responders: Austin Police Department, Austin Fire Department, and Austin/Travis County Emergency Medical Services. This 16 million dollar project is designed and built by BLGY Architects and Harvey-Cleary Builders, commissioned by the City of Austin. Completed in January 2011, the 44-acre site achieved include the Roy Butler Training Building, the Drew Alan Bolin Pistol Range, a renovated driving track, a 120,000 square foot emergency vehicles operations course, a SWAT obstacle course and a master planned Disaster Village with a state-of-the-art Burn Building. This project also included an Art in Public Places installment designed by artist Chris Doyle that functions as a respite from the harsh Texas summers. Scattered throughout the site are five “outdoor classrooms” for instructional purposes. One of the distinguishing features of this project is that behind the new classroom building, 18 out of 350 preferred parking lots are provided for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles. In order to optimize energy performance, the annual renewal energy cost is controlled to $5,530 dollars, which offset 9% of total energy generated. An Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) management plan was developed and implemented at the project site. The material applied for both interior and exterior are low-emitting and none of them exceed volatile organic compound (VOC) baselines.

  5. 5. Emissions and cost are reduced by decreasing energy use through improved design. Emissions are further eliminated by contracting 100% of the building’s energy to a renewable source. PUBLIC SAFETY TRAINING FACILITY 4800 Shaw Lane, Austin, TX, 78744 LEED SILVER 2012 REDUCES ENERGY CONSUMPTION 1 2 3 High-efficiency glass, overhangs, and porches are all passive ways to reduce the heat transmitted indoors Solar panels provide on-site renewable energy and reduce the energy costs of the building The facility received exemplary credit for committing to a 10 year contract with green power. This exceeds the LEED credit requirement by 500% This annual savings is equivalent to: 741Metric tons of GHG emissions 80 Energy consumed by Per year Acres of forest873 Carbon sequestered by 73 Times Driving around Earth 32%REDUCTION ENERGY COST 34%REDUCTION ENERGY USE BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT On-Site Renewable Energy (Solar): 61,439 kWh – 8% of Total Total Energy Use Electricity Provided by Austin Energy: 625,246 kWh Natural Gas: 184,660 kBtu STRATEGIES:
