Tempe Transportation Center
Location: Tempe, Arizona
Client: City of Tempe
Sunwest contributed to this sustainable municipal building project by installing
the 'green roof', the irrigation system, the plant material and the glass gabion
artful retaining walls to this high profile project. The Tempe Transportation Center
is a LEED® Silver registered, mixed-use facility built for the City of Tempe.
The LEED® strategies utilized on the project include a "green" roof, gray water treatment, low-flow fixtures, photovoltaic solar
collection, recycled acoustical ceiling tiles and wheat grass millwork. The 40,000 square foot, three-story structure includes a
large plaza with 15 bus bays and shelters that serve the new METRO light rail and local and regional bus patrons. The building
houses transportation offices for the city, a community/conference room, transit operations center, for-lease office space and
ground-level retail space.
