The City of Olympia retained Brightworks to evaluate the infrastructure, systems, and operations and maintenance practices of its facility portfolio to identify ways to improve operational efficiencies while reducing environmental impacts.
To help plan a new Public Safety Building for Los Angeles International Airport, Brightworks facilitated this workshop with stakeholders to align the sustainability vision for the facility with existing Sustainability Guidelines and LEED requirements.
This emergency response facility was designed to stay operational during catastrophic events. Its sustainability strategies consider long and short term needs, such as water saving cisterns for toilet flushing or extended fresh water supply in a crisis.
Brightworks implemented the general contractor’s LEED program for this 30,000-square-foot repair building at American Lake, adjacent to Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The building is receiving major MEP upgrades and exterior renovations.
This partial demolition and complete remodel included substantial energy efficiency improvements, along with seismic upgrades and improved ADA accessibility. Additional sustainability measures include rainwater capture and an on-site PV array.
