It’s old-ish news, but it’s still worth a mention. The Texas A&M University Agriculture Headquarters Building won a couple of awards. The ENR 2011 Best Projects, Award of Merit and The Associated Builders and Contractors of Greater Houston Institutional Merit Award, 2011 are 2 awards that the building has been given.
Kudela & Weinheimer has had the pleasure of being the Landscape Architect for this project, helping to achieve LEED Silver status, which is determined by the USGBC (United States Green Building Council). One aspect which contributes to the LEED points is that the roof of the Agriculture Building will capture rainwater which will be stored in an underground 40,000 gallon tank; that water will be used for irrigation. Kudela & Weinheimer also designed the site with vegetative bioswales, constructed wetlands, native and adaptive plants, crop demonstration areas, pedestrian circulation, outdoor classroom and courtyard spaces, specialty gardens, and grassland, motor court and an urban street-scape along Kimbrough Boulevard.
