Full Facility Renovation Earns LEED Silver Certification

LHB served as the designer-of-record for a comprehensive design-build project, valued at $6.2 million, involving the renovation of three existing buildings. These included a 13,010-square-foot training center, a 5,620-square-foot organizational maintenance shop (OMS), and a 2,740-square-foot storage building. This project also entailed revisions to the overall site and parking layout, enhancing circulation, providing additional parking options, and improving facility access. Our team provided a range of services, including architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, and civil, electrical, mechanical, fire protection, and structural engineering. These efforts contributed to the facility earning LEED Silver certification.
