Turner Roberts Building Pavilion - LEED Profile

  1. 1. Turner-Roberts Recreation Center Building Pavilion 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.

  5. 5. The development of the Turner Roberts Recreation Center for the Parks and Recreation Department began in 2002 with an outline master plan of the campus. In 2006 it included an agreement to lease part of the property to Austin Independent School District for the construction of an elementary school and shared-use facilities. The Recreation Center was completed in 2008 and LEED silver certification awarded in 2010. The project consists of a one-story, freestanding, multi-use facility for the Parks and Recreation Department and temporarily shared with the Austin Independent School District. The facility is constructed on a 70-acre campus adjacent to the previously constructed LEED Silver Certified Turner-Roberts Recreation Center, which is owned and operated by the City of Austin. This new facility provides the local citizens a space where they can play basketball and volleyball, as well as a gathering space where they can hold community meetings and private functions. Austin Independent School District will uses the facility as a gymnasium. Achieving LEED Silver, the project incorporated a high thermal mass envelope, high-performance HVAC system, and efficient lighting to reduce the building’s energy use. The concrete tilt-wall and CMU construction contribute to the building's thermal mass. Additionally, the kitchen will be provided with a variable-volume exhaust and make-up air ventilation system to reduce energy consumption. The interior lighting will be controlled throughout with occupancy sensors and exterior lighting is provided by high-efficiency LED fixtures.

  6. 6. 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. TURNER-ROBERTS RECREATION CENTER BUILDING PAVILION 7201 Colony Loop Drive, Austin, TX, 78724 LEED SILVER 2016 REDUCES ENERGY CONSUMPTION 1 2 3 High-efficiency window glazing, insulation, and lighting controls are all ways this project reduces energy consumption High-efficiency cooling systems significantly reduce the energy consumption The facility received exemplary credit for green power, doubling the LEED credit requirement This annual savings is equivalent to: 93Metric tons of GHG emissions 10 Energy consumed by Per year Acres of forest109 Carbon sequestered by 9 Times Driving around Earth 32%REDUCTION ENERGY COST 29%REDUCTION ENERGY USE BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT Total Energy Use Electricity Provided by Austin Energy: 84,077 kWh Natural Gas: 88,600 kBtu STRATEGIES:
