This LEED Silver building was completed using a design/build delivery. Civil engineering design services included demolition, site layout, grading, sustainable stormwater, erosion control, utility, and LEED. Coordination with local utility agencies was performed to obtain plan approval prior to construction. The project included three rain gardens designed to meet LEED standards for stormwater management and sustainability. Antiterrorism force protection requirements, including standoff distances and restricted access drives, were incorporated into the design of the new facility.
