The City of Charlotte Design Team along with Little Diversified Architecture went all out as it relates to the sustainable design and construction strategy for their newest Police Precinct Building. Their ultimate goal was to achieve a 60-70% reduction in overall energy and natural resource usage. They ran various scenarios utilizing various wall assemblies and knew that ICF was the ‘only’ choice for them to achieve their aggressive goals.
Because of the use of ICF technology, coupled with a state of the art natural gas driven engine HVAC compressor, a highly insulated roof and low-e high performance windows incorporated into the design of fire station 107, our energy model is predicting an energy savings of 38% over the standards baseline building referenced in LEED.
