Administration, Maintenance and Operations Facility in South Bend Achieves LEED Platinum
The Emil ‘Lucky’ Reznik Administration, Maintenance & Operations Facility has been certified LEED Platinum for New Construction by the USGBC.
RNL, in association with Forum Architects of South Bend, Indiana, and Maintenance Design Group, designed the Reznik Facility for the South Bend Public Transportation Corp.
The facility achieved 52 LEED points, including those for site selection, energy, materials and resources and innovation. At 164,200 sf, the facility is designed to embody the natural connection between sustainability and public transportation.
To compliment the many sustainable features in the Reznik Facility and to promote facility and community education, a digital display inside the lobby provides up-to-date information about the amount of energy the building is creating from its 92 kW photovoltaic roof panels. The system also tracks the amount of potable water saved from water-reducing lavatory fixtures and the facility’s recycled-water bus wash system, as well as the amount of storm water that has been detained on site.
