The team, which self-performed the concrete, utilized BIM software to accurately detail/build the cast-in-place concrete structures virtually and minimize construction waste. A “Tenant Manual” was created for future tenants to help guide them through the LEED for Commercial Interiors certification process. More than 92.03 percent of all construction waste was recycled, with 2,944,690 pounds of debris diverted from landfills.
The buildings are part of a 333-acre master-planned project in northwest Austin. The property includes a 182-acre habitat preserve for the golden-cheeked warbler. Construction was scheduled around the bird’s mating season when noisy work is not allowed.
