LEED / Energy Solutions

Our team is well-versed with the concepts of sustainable site development, water efficiency, energy efficiency, atmospheric protection, and uses of renewable materials and resources that are the basis for the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System®, and have utilized the system on several of our recent design projects. Every choice we make in design has an environmental consequence. A sustainable design perspective is essential to retain the vital resources of our planet.

   

Bowman, Foster & Associates teamed up with Andre Marquez Architects to provide a design team for this new LEED Silver certified campus gateway and security command center designed for a government agency. This 8,702 SF, 2 story, building was designed with the welcome center on the upper level at grade access, and the command center below, partially below grade. Vehicular access gates to the campus and all campus security are controlled from this location. Design included a vegetated green roof for portions of the building.

   

Bowman, Foster & Associates teamed up with RRMM Architects to provide a design team for this Design/Build project requiring design documentation development for a Police and Security Operations Facility, maintenance building and kennel. Completed in January 2008, it achieved a USGBC LEED Silver certification on a fixed budget using standard construction practices and off-the-shelf materials. This project included three (3) buildings totaling approximately 25,000 square feet of new construction on a previously developed site.

This project provides ground source heat pumps for Bldg 1, which is eligible for classification as a historical site. Therefore, the HVAC design takes into account the historic surroundings and is virtually hidden. Mechanical work involves the replacement of the HVAC system including all fan coil units, piping, ductwork, air handling units, hot water generators, steam to hot water converters, insulation, diffusers, etc. Plumbing work removes all ceiling-hung supply, return and drain piping. New HVAC system requires interior supply, new return and drain piping and exterior piping for ground heat exchanger. Electrical work replaces electrical equipment associated with the new HVAC system: Starters, disconnects, wiring, conduit, etc.
