Energy Analysis and LEED Services

Hoffman Estates Fire Department Station #24

Hoffman Estates, Illinois


Henneman Engineering provided energy analysis comparing the proposed building to a baseline ASHRAE 90.1-2004 building and LEED consulting services for the purpose of LEED Gold rating certification by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) for this project.  This includes verification of compliance with the credit rating system as set forth by the USGBC’s LEED-NC version 2.1 Reference Guide. The station includes a circular building component that capitalizes on the functional benefits of a semi-circular day room for optimized TV viewing on one side, and a day-lit, first floor fitness room with operable windows facing the exterior. A combination training room/community room/backup EOC is located in the lower level. Overall water usage is reduced by 30% partially through an underground cistern collecting rainwater which is used for washing fire vehicles.
