Henrico Fire Station #19 is an 11,000 sf facility that achieved LEED Gold Certification based on its adherence to design
an construction requirements across a variety of categories: site sustainability, water efficiency, energy efficiency, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation. Firehouse 19 is projected to use 27 percent less energy than it would if it had been built to minimum code standards. The building features controllable LED lighting to limit energy use and low-emitting building materials to protect indoor air quality. In addition, low-flow plumbing fixtures are estimated to save almost 60,000 gallons of water per year compared to standard fixtures. An estimated 35 percent of building materials used in the project were sourced and manufactured in the region. In addition, 88 percent of its construction waste was reused or recycled, minimizing the impact on area landfills.
