METRO TRANSIT 610 AND NOBLE PARKWAY RIDE FACILITY

Snow Kreilich Architects teamed with Stantec to provide the architectural design, documentation, specifications and construction management for this new 1,000 stall park and ride facility. The ramp at Highway 610 and Noble Parkway will be Metro Transit’s first solar powered park and ride facility. A 40 Kw Photovoltaic Array will be the primary power supply for the facility. Additionally, geothermal heating and cooling will take advantage of the earth’s constant temperature, lowering overall building energy demand. The use of LED lighting with zoned sensor controls will reduce energy costs by 60% compared to a standard ramp design. Sustainable materials, building orientation and solar shading will additionally reduce energy load on the waiting area and circulation spaces of the facility. Finally, the site is utilizing native vegetation and onsite water filtration swales to minimize polluted surface runoff.
