Arlington Fire Station No. 9
Silver - LEED for New Construction (2012) This new 11,000 square-foot fire station in Arlington, Texas was built next to an existing park and included full staff amenities and lodging. The project was designed and managed by the city with Steele and Freemen, Inc. serving as the construction manager at risk. Highlights of this facility include greater than 60% recycled and regional materials installed along with 100% certified wood, a green education program, and a wellness program for firefighters. Innovations were achieved for the open space and heat island reduction due to the installation of native plantings and no permanent irrigation system.
