SEATAC — Sound Transit's light rail station at Angle Lake earned LEED gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
The team included PCL Civil Constructors, HDR and VIA Architecture for the aerial station and guideway. Joint venture Harbor Pacific Graham worked with Berger ABAM and Brooks + Scarpa to design and build the plaza and garage. Parsons Brinkerhoff did project management and Huitt Zollers did pre-design and design services. Johansen Excavating constructed roadway improvements.
The firms incorporated several green features in the station. A 60-panel, 14-kilowatt solar array on the platform canopy provides up to 18,000 kilowatt hours of power to the station annually, and escalators reduce speed to conserve energy when not in use. There are charging stations for electric vehicles in the garage, and storage for 52 bicycles.
Construction used regionally produced and recycled materials, and LED lighting is installed to reduce energy use.
Sound Transit said it will pursue LEED silver for its Eastside operations and maintenance facility.
