LEED® certified fire stations

AFD's two newest fire stations (King's Heights and Chinook Winds) were built as Leadership in Energy and Efficiency Design (LEED®) Silver shadow projects. This means they were built using the principles of LEED design and construction but did not follow the formal certification process.

Sustainable features include:

  • Daylight harvesting through Solar Tube interior light system
  • Low watt fluorescent interior lights
  • LED exterior lights
  • Low VOC (volatile organic compound) finishes
  • Operable windows for fresh air and to decrease the use of air conditioning
  • Lots of windows to decrease daytime use of artificial lighting
  • Rain water harvesting for exterior irrigation
  • Low water use plantings
  • Additional insulation to prevent heat/cold transfer
  • Low E glass to prevent heat build up
