Actual Cost Information:

Detailed budget information has not yet become available. The total building cost given on their website is 8.2 million dollars.


Project Delivery Method

The City of Green Administration Building was built under a multiple prime contract between all the prime contractors and the owner. All prime contracts were a firm lump sum (guaranteed maximum price).



The occupancy classification is type B for business, subgroup S-1 and A-3. The construction type is 2-B. The seismic design category is type C and the seismic design site class is type D. The building is full fire suppressed with a zero hour fire rating for all building elements. The actual height of the building to the bottom of the roof structural line is 37 ft, and it is approved for 90 total occupants.



Building Enclosure

The facade is brick and glass, and I am currently unaware of the roof materials due.


Sustainability Features

There are few notable sustainability features incorporated into the building. Some control systems including motion sensors for the lighting system are in place but currently fail to function.


Building Statistics Part 2: Systems Descriptions



The electrical distribution system recieves power from a 500 kVA, 3 phase, utility owned stepdown transformer located on site. Conduit from this transformer carries 480/277V WYE into the lower level of the building to a main distribution panel. Power is distributed from this main distribution panel through automatic transfer switches to four distribution panels of various sizes. These distribute power to branch circuit panels located in electrical closets throughout the building. Emergency power is supplied by an on-site 750 KW generator which supplies the same 480/277V WYE connection as the utility owned transformer. It connects to the building's electrical system via the automatic transfer switches off the main distribution panel. Emergency power is connected to all building loads.



Exterior lighting for the facade is provided by in ground metal halide luminaires. Metal halide bollards illuminate the pathway leading into the building. The area immedietly outside the entrance is illuminated by recessed fluorescent downlights. The interior spaces use a variety of fluorescent fixtures, including compact and linear fluorescents in various styles of luminaires. Workspaces use four foot by two foot and two foot by two foot linear fluorescents, while more decorative spaces such as the Main Lobby and Council Chambers use recessed CFL cans and CFL pendant fixtures. Linear fluorescent wall sconces are used in the Lobby and Council Chambers spaces as well.



The mechanical system of the building has a dedicated outside air system for ventilation. Supplementary heating and cooling is provided through a water loop heat pump system. This water loop is heated by two natural gas condensing boilers and cooled by a closed circuit induced draft evaporative cooling tower.



The building foundation utilizes spread footings and interior reinforced concrete slab on grade. Structural steel and steel joists support the building loads. W shaped structural steel is ASTM A992, and M / S / C shapes are ASTM A36 uno. All structural steel plates and angles are ASTM A35 uno as well. Size of the structural steel columns varies throughout the building depending on space use and level, with W16x26 and W18x35 being the most common. Beam to beam connections and beam to column connections are double angle with a thickness of 5/16". High strength steel metal form deck is puddle welded at all steel supports. Wood roof trusses support roof loads.


Communication Systems

Fire alarms with visual and audible signals are used. This is a non-addressable system. A centralized computer lighting control system allows for digital control via relays of each seperate lighting zone throughout the building.
