Eastern Regional Park
Silver - LEED for New Construction (2013) League City, Texas’ first LEED project, this 26,400-square-foot recreation center sports an aggressive program with two full gymnasiums, a multipurpose room, locker rooms, meeting and administration space, and support functions. Exterior amenities include a parking area, soccer fields, pool, and other site amenities in the surrounding park. Project partners brought Amanda Tullos and GBS on board to provide consulting and commissioning services to achieve LEED for New Construction Silver certification. The facility includes a variable-refrigerant-volume HVAC system and a rainwater harvesting system with a prominent above-ground tank that also serves an educational purpose. Erosion measures carefully preserve the coastal prairie atmosphere, and native plantings and bioswales treat stormwater runoff.
