The Winnetka Park District conducted a 12 month study to determine the feasibility and placement of a Service Center for the District’s golf and parks operations. Opting for good stewardship and operating efficiency, the Park District directed the project meet LEED Gold Certification standards.
The building was located on a brownfield site, atop a capped landfill adjacent to the Village of Winnetka’s Public Works Facility. On the outside, rain water storage cisterns, water efficient vegetation, fixed exterior sun shading, and other sustainable design strategies were used to garner LEED points. Inside, low flow fixtures, energy efficient lighting, low emitting materials, and ‘smart’ lighting and thermal controls were used throughout the facility.
The new Service Center includes an office area with work stations, conference room, locker rooms and storage, and a work bay with a vehicle maintenance area, workshop and dedicated equipment and storage spaces.
Type of Facility: New Service Center
Project Size: 8,800 sq ft
Construction Start: June 2009
