|Cirlce C Fire Station
|Circle C Fire Station is a new fire station constructed to serve City of Austin annexed areas. The fire station, constructed on a 9.28 acre heavily wooded site, contains a 17,000 gallon rainwater harvesting system for irrigating a vegetative buffer strip and drought-tolerant plants. A stormwater detention provides a natural-looking earthen berm, and rocks excavated from the site were incorporated into an art piece.
A fuel storage tank area for fire trucks was included. The tanks were double walled to prevent leaks.
UDG's work included conceptual planning, utility and roadway coordination, site plan design including grading, drainage, utilities, water quality design, and obtaining City of Austin and TCEQ permits. UDG provided LEED analysis on the Fire Station for the City of Austin. The project earned a silver LEED ranking.
