Tarrant County Regional Water District
Gold - LEED for New Construction (2010) A beautiful rainwater capture system helps the district reduce water consumption by 44% and serves as a functional demonstration of water savings in this new 26,000 square-foot office building and wellness center in Fort Worth, Texas. Working with Steele Freeman, Inc. and the design team, Amanda Tullos (GBS) assisted with building performance measures and managed the LEED certification process. The project’s photovoltaic system broke new ground as it was the largest roof-mounted solar array in Texas at the time. The solar system contributed energy cost savings of more than $43,000 per year and conveys the connection between water and energy to the public, as the district requires energy to pump water to citizens throughout the county.
